    insist on not going but staying

    Hi,

    He insisted on not going skiing in New Zealand but staying home with me.

    Is this idiomatic?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
