Farmstays & Homestays

Staying with a New Zealand family on their farm or in their own house is a great way to meet the locals and experience a real Kiwi lifestyle.

If you choose a farmstay, you may have the chance to help milk the cows, feed the calves or fix fences, you might even get to take an Alpaca for a walk!

At a Homestay you’ll be part of the family for the duration of your stay, sharing the home with your hosts and enjoying insights into local life. Your host may introduce you to some of the local sights and their friends, or particular interests they follow.

As with life, the more you put in the more you get out and our hosts are generally lively types who meet you more than half-way. You may even find yourself with a life-long friend!
