We are a Christian couple with four adult children with one whom lives at home with us. We are proud grandparents of four (two of which live in Japan). We have hosted overseas students for many years. Carolyn is gluten and dairy free. We enjoy Family, Church, Friends, Coffee, Motorsport and our home and gardens.

We started with a bare hillside of land where we transported on a house. We have a small regenerated area of native forest. We have done extensive planting and landscaping. We run a few cows and sheep. We live in a safe, quiet rural area with plenty of parking.

There are always tasks to do depending on one's skills, gardening, weeding, cutting hedges, washing the house or cars, cleaning windows, home maintenance such as painting outside and inside, wallpapering, housekeeping, etc. Some tasks involve power tools or ladders, but only if you are comfortable with them. Tasks both outside, and inside especially if weather not nice.

Waihi Is situated at the bottom of the Coromandel Peninsular and the top of the Bay of Plenty, we live 10km out of town (Waihi), 15 minutes drive away from the beautiful Waihi Beach. And ten minutes from cycling and walking tracks in the gorgeous Karangahake Gorge.

We have guest room with a Queen Bed and a single bed, a comfortable home with beautiful rural views. (In summer we have a small pool available to use as well). No smokers please. Under the Helpx policy, in exchange for 4 hours work, we provide all the food and do the cooking.
