New Zealand homestays offer a unique environment to immerse yourself in Kiwi culture and language. Homestay accommodation enables you to take time out and relax in a family environment with a home stay family. Typical homestays provide meals, accommodation and many hosts will entertain you during your visit.
A homestay would best fit an individual or perhaps a couple – occasionally a family. Longer term students often stay in a homestay and almost become part of the family. If you prefer to get to know the locals, this maybe the option for you.
