Our homestay hosts will provide safety and security in a well supervised environment. Share in the daily life and experiences of a New Zealand homestay host and immerse yourself in local life. All of our Auckland Homestay hosts are police checked and carefully chosen to provide you with a warm, caring and safe atmosphere.

Homestay is available to everyone and is compulsory if you are under the age of 18 years.
