Professional Bio

Hi, I'm Claire. At Homestay.com we provide authentic travel experiences, connecting travelers with locals who have a spare room to rent in their home. Travelers staying in a homestay not only get to visit a destination but they get to really live it too, immersing themselves in local life through their experience of sharing time with their hosts. Homestays are the embodiment of the 'share economy' relative to travel and accommodation.
