We have been a host family for students for over 5+years and we love it! We provide a safe and loving environment for students abroad! 10min by bus to Downtown Auckland / University!
We live in a very safe and sort after part of Auckland surrounded by families. Large 7 bedroom Villa in the heart of Mt Eden. Plenty of space and huge kept gardens with a pool! Family of 6 who stay very active. Heaps of sports, bbqs, beach trips and much more! We have a large batch that we frequent on weekends in the coromandel - Tairua so be a great experience for a student to see some of New Zealand.
We are a family with four sons ( 16years,15years, 6years and 5years old) the two big boys currently attend Auckland Boys Grammar. The two young one both attend primary school just down the road. I am a kiwi from Auckland and my wife is from Fort Worth,Texas , USA! Our kids have assisted in teaching over 10 students learn English!
As we have two rooms available at present we can accommodate two students.
Bus stop to Auckland City is right outside driveway ( 5-10min bus ride to town).
