Accommodations where the owners live on the premises as well are called homestays.
People in several holiday destinations with large homes invite travellers to stay in their homes as their guests for the duration of their travel. What travellers can expect at a homestay is a comfortable homely stay, homemade food (definitely the best way to experience local cuisine), local culture while having your privacy as well.
Most homestay owners do this as a hobby as they enjoy hosting people. They are also the best source of local information
