Homestays are a form of lodging where visitors share a residence with a local of the area host. The length of stay can vary from one night to over a year and is usually provided at a discount in exchange for chores on the premises. There may also be limitations to guests, kitchen usage, and anything else that is negotiated in the contract. Homestays often look for graduate students.
