International Students

ESI provide a 24-hour phone support system where students and homestay families can contact us anytime if needed.

Every homestay family is assessed with the view – would we be happy to place our own children with the families? We expect the highest standard for our students in a safe, welcoming home environment.

While Eastern Shores International has grown rapidly under new ownership, we remain committed to sustaining those personal touches that students come to expect.

ESI’s attention to detail ensures that you receive a service that is the absolute top of the range.

If you intend to study at GCIT at the Gold Coast and want homestay accommodation in Southport, Ashmore, Upper Coomera or any other Gold Coast area please contact us.

As we have grown, we have gained the reputation as the premier home stay specialists for international students and tour groups on the Gold Coast and Brisbane.


  • Our students can be assured that all of our families are thoroughly and professionally screened, then regularly re-assessed to ensure that they maintain our high standards of care. Consistency is a key word for us.
  • We specialise in matching you with a genuine host family that will support you with settling effortlessly into life in Australia while you study.
  • We operate a number of home stay packages tailored to suit students and young visitors, and we are always willing to work with you in designing a unique package for your individual needs.
