Meet your host family: Nicole in USA

Swiss Floridian host family in Florida, USA - Nicole & Robert

For bookings and estimates, please contact the Linguifamily team.

Welcome to Florida.
We welcome guests of all ages ;-). You are never too old for an adventure ;-).
Everybody is welcome ;-).
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 2 friendly/loving and clean Chihuahua dogs. 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 traveled around the world 3 times and do speak 6 languages. I helped out in 3rd. world countries after Tsunamis, worked with poor street children in Cartagena, Colombia, South America. I love the diversity of people, culture, religion, countryside's etc...
We are also fostering abused dogs during certain time periods...
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:

Your American immersion experience :
A typical day with us

We had students/guests of all ages, 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 :-).
Please, be aware that sometimes, I still need to take time for our personal business...
We do have an Airbnb/Condo by the beach, which I clean from time to time. This cozy place is also beneficial for our guests, as they can use the resort pool and hot tub with a front view to the ocean/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......
About or excursions/sightseeing trips::::
In today's modern world, (in ONE click and 1 second) you can be just everywhere on this planet through Google/YouTube. You can look up a historical place/tourist attractions etc. I have decided to keep a little sparkle, mystery, and surprise for my guests when we go on sightseeing trips. I prefer not to reveal too much information prior to a trip, as I want to keep the fire, the curiosity, and the goosebumps up ;-) I hope you understand what I mean ;-)

IMPORTANT !!!!!!!! SIGHTSEEING TRIPS !!!!!!! WILDLIFE !!!!!!!!!! If you book a trip with wildlife observation like, for example; dolphins, alligators, monkeys, manatees, etc., WE CANNOT GUARANTEE 100% what you will see, as animals have their schedule ;-). Mother nature is just unpredictable ;-).

We usually DO NOT visit the Orlando Theme Parks with our students/guests like expl: Disney World, SeaWorld, Legoland, etc., as they are very expensive.... BUT !!!! ;-) !!! If we, as a family, decide to go there for a birthday/anniversary celebration, or just because we feel like, then of course, the student/guest is welcome to come with us :-....

English will be always spoken. Besides English, I do speak Italian, French, Spanish, German.

One very important thing, about our students. We are a neutral family, spending a lot of quality time with the student and are very open-minded. We often earn the student's trust, which leads to deep, serious, and important conversations. Sometimes we have conversations where parents are not even aware of their child's personal problems or struggles. We, as a host family, have plenty of time to talk with the student about his/her school issues/bullying, parents’ divorce/love relationships etc.... We never ever force a conversation on our students. We are here to help and listen :-).

We offer:
- Transportation to and from airports Orlando/Sanford/Daytona Beach.
- Planning and carrying out private trips, to exciting and adventures places/beaches/springs etc.... Watch out for Floridian wildlife (dolphins, alligators, wild boars, snakes, bears, etc.), go on adventures hikes, visit historical/local places and much, much more ;-).
- Room (master suite with private bath) Sometimes we do have apartments available...
- Full board= Breakfast- Lunch- Dinner (incl. picnic/restaurant etc..).
- Half board and bed and breakfast for our Adults.
- 24-Hour Care English will be always spoken with our guests.
- Laundry as needed
- Access to the beach, pool/hot tub

  • Single room

IMPORTANT !!!!!!!! SIGHTSEEING TRIPS !!!!!!! WILDLIFE !!!!!!!!!!

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....
