Swiss Floridian hostfamily in Florida, USA - Nicole & Robert

Welcome to Florida.
We are a Swiss-Floridian host family living in Deland, Florida. I am a registered nurse originally from Switzerland but have lived all over the world. My husband is a Floridian IT (Computer) manager and works in Orlando. We have 2 children, born in 1999 and 2013. We do have 1 friendly and clean Chihuahua lady. Our cat is outside at all times/an outdoor cat ;-).
We would love to welcome you and host you in our cozy home. I have travelled around the world 3 times and do speak 6 languages. I helped out in 3rd. world countries after Tsunamis, worked with street children in Cartagena, Colombia, South America. I love the diversity of people, culture, religion, countryside's etc...

It is very important to be open minded, see what is out of the box and learn new cultures and languages.
If you travel, you become a different and better person. You will mature in a different positive way.
Traveling opens your mind, your soul and your heart.
I want to give everybody this unique experience and opportunity, which they will always remember and will most definitely not learn at school.

Proposed activities:

A typical day with us

We had students of all age, from all over the world.
I will always dedicate myself and my time to our international guests a 100%. It will be a one on one :-).

We do have an Airbnb/Condo by the beach, which I clean from time to time, depending on the check-in/check-outs :-). This cozy place is also very beneficial for your child, as she/he can use the resort pool and the hot tub with a front view to the beach :-)....

With our international students, we explore the Floridian life, do adventures excursions to historical places, wildlife observation, visit different beaches, lighthouse, national parks, springs, go shopping etc......
I will always speak English. Only in an emergency I will speak to my guests/student in their native language... """ if I speak it """ ;-)

One very important thing, about our students.
As we are a neutral family, spending a lot of quality time with the student and are very open minded, we often earn the child's trust, which leads to very deep, serious and important conversations. Sometimes we have conversations where parents are not even aware of their child's personal problem/struggle, whether it's about school issues/bullying, parents divorce/love relationships etc....So, we as a host family have always time and an open ear for them ...
We never ever force a conversation on our students. We are here to help and listen :-).

We offer:
- Transportation to and from airport Orlando/ Sanford/ Daytona Beach
- Planning and carry out private trips, to exciting and adventures places/beaches/ springs. Watch out for Dolphins and Alligators, visit historical places, check out a lighthouse with the best view ever
and much, much more ;-).

Séjour incroyable, fantastique, magnifique ! Accueil chaleureux, enthousiaste, encadrement au top ! Notre fils Yannaël a pu visiter toute la région, tout voir dans la région: en somme la vie américaine au quotidien avec toute la famille, y compris avec le fils de 11 ans qui a été adorable. Nicole prend son rôle très au sérieux et est vraiment à l'écoute. Super expérience !!!

Je suis la fille d'Eric et j’ai eu la chance cet été de passer 2 super semaines en séjour linguistique chez Nicole et Robert. J’ai été accueillie encore bien mieux que je ne m’y attendais. Pendant ces 2 semaines, Nicole et Robert ont été très attentionnés, à mes petits soins et je me suis sentie comme chez moi. Pas un seul jour je ne me suis ennuyée, ils m’ont fait découvrir leur ville et ses environs par le biais de plusieurs activités, accro-branche, promenades, plages, zoo, visites etc... je garde donc un souvenir inoubliable de cette super expérience qui est à vivre une fois dans sa vie. N’hésitez donc pas à passer un séjour chez eux, rares sont les personnes aussi accueillantes, bienveillantes et chaleureuses comme Nicole, Robert et leurs enfants.

Ma fille de 17 ans a séjourné 15 jours dans cette famille. Ce fut pour elle une excellente expérience, aussi bien pour la langue que pour la découverte de la région. La famille s'est occupée pleinement d'elle comme si c'était sa propre fille. De la prise en charge à l'aéroport jusqu'au départ, ma fille était très bien encadrée et en totale sécurité. Par ailleurs, pour avoir rencontré cette famille à la fin de son séjour, j'ai pu constater l'accueil chaleureux et les qualités humaines exceptionnelles de cette famille. Assurément une expérience inoubliable....
