Student & Guest Testimonials
Here are some Testimonials from customers who have used Venamicasa service for this year 2011. This includes those who have used the following services:
•Spain Homestay with a Spanish host family in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia or Sevilla

“I visited Valencia together with my friend for 5 days in Jan 2011 and we took the full-board homestay package with a Spanish host family offered by Venamicasa. We were very satisfied with the service offered by Venamicasa, it was first class! My host family, Paquita, was a lady who lives alone in the city centre in Valencia. Paquita gave us a very warm welcome and made us feel at home for the 5 days that we stayed in her nice apartment. She is used to welcoming visitors, and although we don’t speak Spanish, it wasn’t difficult to communicate. And Amelia was just a phone call away when we needed any information about Valencia or how to get around. We had the chance to taste a lot of the delicious Spanish meals cooked by Paquita. Paquita’s apartment was within walking distance to the main tourist sites, so it was easy for us to tour the area. I would strongly recommend Venamicasa to anyone interested to visit and enjoy Spain without spending much.” Angelique Chotin (France) ___________________________________________

“Me gustaría agradecerle por la elección de acomodación con Sra. Teresa Moné, puesto que mi estancia en su piso (Calle Rocafort) fue la mejor posible. Tuve la necesaria privacidad, pero en ningún momento me sentí solitario. La habitación es muy bonita y cómoda. La pareja de propietarios es muchísimo simpática y me ayudó con todos los asuntos de Barcelona, siempre listos a darme informaciones y sugerencias. Son personas encantadoras, y además para el estudio del español todo resultó perfecto, porque conversábamos mucho, varias veces al día. Finalmente, me sentí de verdad como miembro de la familia. La experiencia fue extraordinaria.
Gracias por todo,”
I hope you are doing well. I can’t believe how fast my trip is going by. I have been very so satisfied with the location of the houses, and host families! I can’t wait to recommend your company to other friends back at home. I wanted to inform you that I have purchased by train ticket to Barcelona. I will be arrive on Tuesday around 3:30PM. Looking forward to meeting the Derra family.
I am leaving Calle de Rocafort next week after staying here for 4 months. I want to let you know that I highly recommend Teresa and Enrique’s home to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Barclelona. They have both made me feel very welcome and at home here. Although I have been cooking my own food, I have seen what a wonderful cook Teresa is and how much everyone enjoys her food. The flat is clean and very comfortable and is in a very good situation in the city.
Thank you for finding this homestay for me. I will be sad to leave next week.
How are you? I hope that you are fine!
Well, I just landed in Tunis this morning, and I wanted to tell you that everything was alright during my trip.
First, I would like to thank you because you gave me a lot of information for this first experience, and also for your trust and the exception you made for me regarding the payment.
Venamicasa is really professional and I think I will be a loyal client :))
As I promised I gave the money cash to my lovely host Mrs . Teresa upon my arrival last sunday.
I’m sure, I will come back again to spain and barcelona and I will recommend venamicasa around me and contact you for further trips :)))
Second, I would like to tell you that Mrs Teresa was very very very nice with me, my journey was amasing in spain! Iloved everything there 😀
My host did everything perfectly for me, food was delicious and as I wanted, the place was perfect, clean and everything was SO GREAT!!
I really thank you and if I give Mrs Teresa a mark it will be 20/20 :))) she was really cool and I felt so well at ease, and confortble in her house.
Mrs Teresa was always availabe to advise me or see if I need anything.
I am really very very satisfied . Mrs Teresa and Mr Enrique were really so nice to me and I thank them so much.
So thank you for everything again! :))
Have a nice day
Good morning Teresa and ‘The Catalan’!
Thank you both, Teresa and Enrique, for our wonderful visit to Barcelona. Doing a homestay was a really worthwhile way to stay and absorb the ‘local flavour’….we would definitely recommend Venamicasa and especially Teresa’s house for a stay. We were so well fed – to bursting point!……and Teresa is a wonderful cook who went out of her way to provide the gluten free meals that Doug needed. She really put herself out so he didn’t have any dietary problems while in Barcelona. This wasn’t so easy to cope with in the rest of our travels.
Cheers from Australia

Ven a mi casa e precisamente lo que busco: La opportunidad de conocer no solo la parte turistica pero tambien un pocito de la vida cotidiana – e encontrar gente que estima lo miso.
Senora Hernandez – Gracias per questo compromiso social!
Hola Sra. Hernandez,
Estamos contentísimos de nuestra estancia en casa de Maria Antonia.
Es una señora culta que tomó el tiempo de hablar con nosotros para que progresemos.
El domingo por la noche, quiso que saliéramos juntos para ver las iluminaciones. Admito que prestaba atención como si fuese mi mamá.
Gracias por todo. ¡ Fue nuestro mejor regalo de fin de año !
Muchas gracias a ti y a Ricardo por estar mis anfitriones en Barcelona esta semana! Realmente disfruté de mi estancia en su casa hermosa, ordenada y amable. La comida también fue maravillosa. Yo estoy en el tren a Zaragozaahora, y como has dicho el paisaje es muy bonito. Me encantó Barcelona y sus concurridas calles, parques ymonumentos, y ahora espero con interés el rural Teruel!
Muchas gracias también por la visita a la bodega que era muy divertido. También me gustó que siempre fuiste tan amable.

The distance does not bother me. I actually enjoy walking a lot and I like the neighborhood.
Maribel is a wonderful host, her home is very clean, neat and organized. The meals are exactly what I needed.
Thank you again for your quick communication.
I am really enjoying my stay in Barcelona and will sure come back!
