Homestay Hosts Needed Across New Zealand

10 March 2023

New Zealanders with a spare bedroom and an interest in welcoming international students to Aotearoa have the opportunity to become part of a unique experience.

New Zealand Homestay (NZH) is looking for locals to host students in their home, make new connections, and showcase the best parts of our beautiful country. Becoming a homestay host and showing manaakitanga to students has great benefits like meeting people from all over the world, learning about different cultures and helping your guests become part of the community.

Are host families paid? Yes! Our homestay host payments are designed to cover day-to-day food and accommodation expenses, with a little extra to thank you for your efforts.

Being a New Zealand Homestay host also includes insurance, 24/7 support and streamlined payments. Another feature is our unique profile-based matching process which pairs hosts and students based on common interests and lifestyle factors, setting up a positive homestay experience.

Hosts are needed in Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin. Learn more about hosting with NZH or apply now.
