One of the ways you can experience an authentic St. Eustatius vacation is to be a guest
at the home of a local family. The St. Eustatius Tourism Development Foundation
spearheads the “Homestay Statia” community-based project, through which visitors
can arrange to live with families on the island. The people of St. Eustatius are warm
and friendly, exuding a genuineness that is palpable. The island’s small size and
population translates into one happy community where everyone knows everyone
else. There are no strangers here and visitors will soon realize that they too are friends.
Never an unfriendly gaze would you encounter - smiles and pleasant greetings will
be your on-going vacation experience.
