We are a German/Australian couple, both 61 years old and working in the Public Service. Our younger son recently moved to Germany, and our 26 year old son (a high school teacher) is currently living with us. We all have Working with Vulnerable People certificates. We have been hosting International students from China, Korea, Cambodia and Oman and off for about 5 years (previously through an agency) and really enjoy the experience. The $280 relate to room, internet, breakfast and dinner 7 days a week but we can also work out other arrangements. Our house is in a quiet cul-de-sac with mountain views in the leafy suburb of Flynn. There is a bus stop around the corner and it takes about an hour to get to ANU or about 40 min to University of Canberra. By car it takes about 25 min to 10 min respectively.
