We are a family of three. We have a 6 yr old daughter 2 cat's and 4 chickens. We have a small vegetable patch. We are a non smoking family and prefer non-smokers. We have an occasional wine / beer and with an evening meal. We will not tolerate anyone who is drinking in excess. We are close to the beautiful West coast beach of Muriwai. Local shops with basic amenities / cafe is a 5 min walk away. There is a bus service to westgate / helensville and auckland city - it is not a regular bus schedule - usually once an hour during the day - can take over an hour to get to city. Having a car would be beneficial but not a necessity. we would to willing to pick up / drop off to main bus stops within reason and when time permits.
My husband speaks Spanish and teaching our daughter. We are a normal working family with daughter at school so life can be busy. You will be treated like a family member and expect the same in return. Work 5 -6 hrs a day we can be flexible if a day off is needed. Chores include gardening - mowing lawn, weeding, house maintenance - window cleaning, gutters / painting. General inside house cleaning / laundry / ironing. This will just depend on what chores are needing doing at any given time. Can also cook a meal if desired. We provide a double bed ( if 2 people travelling together need to be comfortable sharing same bed ) in our spare bedroom, bathroom with shower, laundry and meals. Breakfast and lunch we provide the usual "fixers" to make own meal and evening meal we make unless someone wanted to do meals. We are not vegetarian although tend to have a few meat free nights each week. we can take people out to the beach when we are going and likewise if going into the city. Basically it's about making it work for all parties and having fun in the process and meeting new people from different destinations.
We will not be available for Hosting from December 14th till ? late January 2016.
Additional Information: We are on rain water supply - very common in NZ for oversea visitors. We are already experiencing a very dry spring so we need to be mindful of our water consumption - so we have a 3 min shower rule as we say to visitors soap up with no water and rinse off.
