Hello. We are English speaking Canadian-Chinese family with rooms available for a Douglas College New West Campus, or a High School student in the Burnaby or New Westminster School districts. We live in a 4,000 sq ft home, with 2 levels (there is no basement in the house) located in New Westminster very near the Burnaby Border, on bus lines and 6 minutes to the Skytrain station. We are an experienced host family for many years. There are no pets in our home.
The home stay fee includes 3 meals a day, your own room with bed, study table and lamp, a dresser, WIFI, shared laundry and shared bathroom. We cook mostly Asian food (Chinese, Korean, Japanese), as well as western dishes such as pasta, hamburgers, steak sandwiches, etc.
The home stay fee for 3 meals full board is from $900 to $1000 depending on the room.
Please note that we create an English speaking environment for our students, and request that all conversation during meal times and in the common areas be conducted in English. One of the host parent is a Registered Nurse. Please reply to this post to set up an appointment to meet the host family and view the home.
We are 1 block away from restaurants, banks, tutoring centre, and shops.
