Note: Looking for Help from around early November, up until early/mid December - mainly for childcare and house, garden, and pet care.

We are Caro (35) and Ed (42), a couple living with our child, Mo (born March 2014) and our handsome cat Captain Springs.

Onehunga is Aucklandís coolest suburb. We love living here. In December, we're going to move to Dunedin. Up until then, we would be grateful for help and fungrateful for help and fun company, sharing our last weeks of living in Auckland with some nice people who are happy to help out and spend some time caring for our child.

At this stage, we don't need helpers with specific skills except for enthusiasm for children; we mainly want to host people who will be friendly and fun! So please describe a bit about yourself so we can tell if you would fit in with our personalities :-)

See our profile info and additional references on couchsurfing via
our website link above. We really love sharing our home with travellers and making friends over meals, drinks, etc.

PLEASE NOTE: When you contact us, please describe specifically how you fit what we are looking for. We may not reply to generic copy+paste requests. COMPLETE your helpx profile before you contact us. Include details about your personality, skills and strengths - if you have no references, write about what you have worked hard on in your life. What is it that makes you a good worker? Please don't just say 'this is my first helpx' - that's not helpful! Please give us a link to your couchsurfing profile/facebook/blog/website if you have one.
We are looking for helpers who have some or all of these qualities:
- able to cook meals for everyone to share
- happy to help with little jobs like washing dishes, vacuuming etc
- happy to supervise and play alongside our child
- over 25 - we enjoy meeting people closer to our ages
- happy to get up out of bed before 9am most days - Y.O.L.O!

We offer:
- comfortable accommodation for 2 people in a queen size bed in a private room - there is additional space for a mattress on the floor if travelling in a group of three or a couple with a child
- food: we appreciate helpers who have a 'give-and-take' approach to food, sharing etc. We expect you to spend $20-30 a week on food. This contributes to our kitchen supplies - you share with us, we share with you.
- We are vegetarian and eat mostly vegan food. We are also plastic-free as much as possible and would urge you to respect this by trying not to buy food items that are packed in single-use plastic as this contributes to our household waste.
- free unlimited wifi internet
- great company and good times ;-)

We are family-friendly, queer-friendly, anti-racism, socially progressive, and Eco-friendly :-)

Work hours vary but you can expect to work 4 hours maximum per day, for 4 days maximum per week.

We prefer NON-SMOKERS. If you are a smoker, please tell us how frequently you smoke, so we know what to expect :-)
