We are a couple in our 50’s with no children at home.  We are both working professionals that are friendly, outgoing and very easy to get along with.  We are both very helpful and always willing to try and help out as much as possible. 

We have had one student in the past from Taiwan, and he loved his stay here very much, that he often writes to say he would love to come back. 

The house is located in a quiet suburb of Gateshead.  The location of the house is very close to Newcastle.  There is easy access to Newcastle City centre with bus stops close by.  The journey time from our home to Newcastle City centre is around 10 minutes by bus.  One of Europe’s biggest shopping centre’s The Metrocentre is also close by, which takes 5 minutes by bus. 

The room the students will stay in the house has a double bed, TV with satellite and wifi.  The room also has a lot of good storage space with wardrobes, chest of drawers, cabinets and shelves.  The bathroom is the shared family bathroom.

Students will be able to use every room in the house, including the kitchen, dining room, living room.  Students can use the kitchen to help their selves to breakfast.  Evening meals will be provided during the week, if we are at home on the weekends we would cook on weekends too. 

Students would be allowed to smoke in designated rooms only. 
We will pick up and drop off students at the airport
