Group Therapy: My Boyfriend Won't Come to My House

I've been dating my current boyfriend for about six months. We didn't make the relationship official until I was home from college for the summer. We have a happy relationship, but he doesn't come over to my house! Initially we agreed that his place was better because we have more privacy there. I visited him whenever I came home for the weekend, which was maybe three or four times during the semester.

However, since summer started I have been making the 40 minute drive to his house three days a week to sleep over, while he's only been to my house a total of three times since I met him. I brought the issue up with him a few weeks ago. He apologized, saying that he felt really bad that I was upset and that he thought we were in agreement that his place worked out better. He also claims that it's more awkward at my house because everyone is usually home when he comes over (although they never bother us, and we certainly have enough privacy).

I told him that it's unfair for me to always have to drive to see him, and that I feel just as awkward in his house because his family is always there too. Since then he has driven to my house to pick me up and taken me to his house a few times, but he is always so reluctant to set foot inside my house. What can I do to make things less awkward for him?
