I was fortunate to contact this homestay agency before my arrival. The homestay was excellent and comfortable. The host family showed me around the city and taught me how to go to school. I enjoyed the company of my host family and the delicious homemade food. I would like to thank my coordinator Mr. Mark Safty for introducing me to this homestay family. The service and booking were fast when I decided to book my homestay.
Thank you guys for finding a homestay fast for me. I was worried at the start because I could not look for a homestay on my own and homestays did reply on other websites. Some websites promise to connect you with hosts but a waste of time. A lot of homestays did not answer me, did not answer my questions, kept me waiting, and a lot of ads were not real. My homestay coordinator was fast, located multiple options, and allowed me to message with my host and ask questions. Getting more information about my homestay and photographs was assuring to me. He also helped me book the homestay and guarantee it before I arrived. It was a piece of mine for me.
My clients are very interested to know more about homestay and ESL schools that I worked with did not provide me with much information. Many students arrived and were not happy with homestay arrangement. Some host families did not even speak proper English at home or foreign language at home. I contacted IHA, and they helped me give adequate information to my clients and their parents in advance. My coordinator at IHA took the guesswork out and reduced complaints from my clients. I understand that I cannot please each client. I am happy working with IHA homestay agency. I highly recommend them to educational consultants like me.
I hosted students for years. I find IHA’s staff to be professional. I find Ehab and Mark service oriented and want to help my students and me. I am quite happy with their services. I worked with other agencies and schools but found IHA to be unique with high success booking rate vs. other online services or websites. They always matched with my hosting preferences successfully. They care about me and care about the students too. If a student was not a good fit, they helped replace with another host family. Many companies came and gone in this business, but they have been number one for me. At least most of my students knew about me, my house, and location well before they arrived at my home. The agency allowed me to get paid directly by the student. They gave me a lot of flexibility with pricing my rooms, and their fee is quite low compared to agencies from abroad or schools who have lots of red tapes.
Since early 2007 I have known people who host International students through Ehab at VHA Homestay Agency. The agency is well respected because Ehab is a dedicated professional who takes personal pride in making sure that both the host families and the International students are happy and their homestay needs fulfilled. I endorse Ehab and the agency services his company provides.
Ehab, at IHA, helped me find a homestay family in Seattle in 2011 during the time I went to flight school. He was very professional, and I felt that finding the best place for me was a high priority for him. Thanks, Ehab!
This homestay agency is very professional. They are hard-working people who work tirelessly to pair students with the right homestay families. I have known Ehab and his family for some five years and have even participated as a homestay student myself at his family home. I was made exceptionally welcome, and I would trust and recommend his organization’s services to any student or family.
IHA has an extensive database of hosting families. They treat everyone with high integrity and care. They are real service professionals who want their clients to be satisfied. We highly recommend to you whether your a guest, student, or a family ready to welcome guests.
