All our homes are inspected to ensure a high standard of comfort.
All homestays include breakfast and dinner Monday – Friday and all meals during weekends and Public Holidays.
All students undergo our Homestay Orientation Programme on their first day. This programme helps students to make the most of their homestay experience.
A typical New Zealand homestay house has gardens and lawns. Each student has his / her own separate room.
