Host Families NZ - homestay accommodation

Homestay boarding provides a unique opportunity to live in a furnished room with a local New Zealand family in Nelson or Marlborough. It is a great way to settle in a new city, country, or even a new environment if this is your first time living away from home.

Homestay is a popular choice for international students, especially those interested in improving their English at home or getting to know a new culture.

Host Families NZ provides homestay placements with Kiwi families for young or mature students. They ensure students (both domestic and international) live in a warm, comfortable, safe, enjoyable, and enriching family environment. Options include full-board, half-board, or without meals.
