We were very fortunate to stay in York at the end of June with a group of 52 students and four adults from a German school in Bernau bei Berlin.

It was a pleasure for us to be taken care of by Elaine (Curcher) who was absolutely professional, caring and entertaining at the same time. We really appreciated her support and want to share this positive experience with you and say thank you very, very much.

We love to be back and wish you all the very best for your work with
those nice York host families we had a chance to meet.

Gabriele Mertinaschk – Germany

York Homestay always offers a friendly, fast and professional service and the host families are of a very high standard.

Holly Mitchinson – Maypole Travel

We have a long standing working relationship with Lynette (not only for her sense of humour!).

Over the years we have had many groups staying in York with Lynette’s host families. It is great working with her as she provides excellent families and always takes diets, allergies, etc. very seriously.

So far, all groups who have stayed with her and her families have returned to York. A sure sign of satisfaction!

Sonja van Vuuren – Holland

We have been working with Lynette Shaw for the last 12 years. Over these years she has placed with local families no fewer than 600 of our students, who have enjoyed their stay and a great number of then have returned to the same host families in subsequent years.

She has also arranged the programs, the renting of classrooms, the contracting of teachers and hiring of coaches to carry out the experience, always showing a great professionalism.

Manolo – Spain

You are efficient, professional, confident and give so much care and attention to the well-being of your foreign guests. Your families, which you obviously choose very carefully, are welcoming, of good standard and generally much liked by our groups (students and their teachers).
