WELCOME to Halifax and into our family!! A young family, myself, my husband and our two sons (4 and 2 years old) want to welcome you into our home and to become a part of our extended family. We are a fun loving and energetic family that enjoy living life to its fullest.
We live in central Halifax, steps from the Halifax Shopping Centre and the Mumford Bus Terminal (the major bus terminal in Halifax). We live in a great family oriented neighbourhood close to lovely parks, shopping and close to all universities, colleges and downtown. Everything you need at our doorstep. Driving time to the downtown core is approximately 7 mins. We offer a private room with a desk, dresser, closet, bookshelf and shared bathroom with two other students. We currently have two homestay students living with us, one from China and the other is from Saudi Arabia. We love learning about other countries and cultures and offer an abundance of hands-on help and support to help you adjust to your new environment.
I was once a homestay student in France and I understand first hand how very exciting and scary leaving home to study can be. I had a wonderful experience while I was a homestay student and want to welcome serious and respectful students into our home and family so I can offer you the same care and support that was once offered to me. We ideally would like a student that is looking to stay in Halifax for a long-term, a year or even longer but are open to minimum stays of 3-6months depending.
Our home is now your home. You have access to everything except for other people's bedrooms. All bedrooms are equipped with doors that lock. We are a trusting family, but we offer this to our students. We have a large backyard and garden, basement area with the latest XBox, movies and games, a piano, and many other fun things. We also understand and respect your privacy and are not offended if you choose to do your own thing.
Our home is large and bright, with hardwood floors throughout. We are very clean. No pets or smoking in the home. We do have a small hypo-allergenic dog (shi-tzhu) We do not smoke, and prefer a student that doesn't either, but if you do we ask that you respect the no smoking in the home policy and smoke in a designated area outdoors.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are offered to you. No matter what time of day, you are welcome to help yourself to whatever food in the home. I cook daily and enjoy trying to make dishes from different countries. I'm always open to suggestions to what you like to eat and try my best to accommodate everybody's needs. You can come and go as you please and can choose to eat with us or not. There will always be food in the home for you at any time.
We're eager to extend a warm welcome to you into our family and create great memories together and share many laughs and good times. If this sounds like a good fit for you please do not hesitate to contact us via email, (hadiaaskri@hotmail.com) or directly through this posting =)
