    That's pretty much it. It is Spanish, and your translation is correct. And yes, it's basically just an expression of hospitality; that you are always welcome in my home. It might be spoken to someone at some other location away from your home, and would be more or less like saying, "Come over anytime!" It might also be spoken to someone after they have already come to your home, and would be like saying "Make yourself at home."
