We are a British-Australian-USA family living in a residential area of San Diego in Southern California. We have a biliterate English/French 11 year old daughter and a somewhat bilingual English/French six year old son.
As non-native born Americans, we are able to share our 20 years plus experiences of the surprising ways that this part of the USA is both different and similar to other countries.
We are well-traveled. Prior to becoming parents we traveled together or separately throughout Europe, Iceland, Morocco, Lebanon, Madagascar, Cuba and our native countries of the UK and Australia. Many of these trips were funded by living in house-sharing situations - we are used to sharing our space with non-family members and people with a different culture to our own.
I am a stay at home parent and would be at home with the children when they are here, so no "lone care" of our kids is requested.
We offer lodging, meals at home on days you are working, the use of a bicycle and the use of our private swimming pool during summer.
We prefer that you speak French fluently, but are currently open to other languages. We only host females. We will consider a female with a child or children.
We are a non-smoking family and are unable to host smokers, including social-only smokers.
We are unable to sponsor any visas. You must have a return ticket or a ticket booked to leave the USA prior to entering the USA.
