Homestay is about ordinary people living in an ordinary house welcoming others as guests into their home. The homeowner acts as a host and guide in return for a fee. This means that hosts can earn money by staying at home. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Anyone in any style of home can become a host and earn extra money. It is up to you how much you want to put into it. The more effort, the better the return.
There is no typical host or host family in terms of age, family makeup, economic status, background or location.
However, I wrote this book based on my knowledge of the army of women of a certain age who, in the late middle of life, find themselves living alone in a family home that they can no longer afford—a house that is too big and empty. The future looks difficult and lonely, and maybe the only option is to downsize and leave the home that they love.
I searched and could find nothing to help me, so I set about learning on the job.
This book will give you my eight years of experience all wrapped in in one place.
