What Houzz contributors are saying:
Time out for the hostIf you are staying for more than a couple of days, make plans to get out of the house and give a bit of a breather to your hosts. Visit the must-see spots in the city or meet with other friends/relatives. Tell your host about your plans so they know when to expect you back home. Treat your hostsTake the family out for dinner/lunch; it will be a welcome break for your host from the kitchen. Another nice gesture would be to take their children out for a fun day. The parents can enjoy a relaxing day at home all by themselves, all thanks to you.
