We are a young NZ family who left our city lives behind in Auckland 4 years ago to live in beautiful suburban Papamoa Beach. Our spacious home is only 1.8km to the beach, close to bus route, a quick drive to Bayfair shops or Papamoa shops. Under 15 minutes drive to Tauranga city or Mount Maunganui. 50 minutes to Rotorua or 3 hours to Auckland. This sunny beach town has fabulous summer activities like outdoor movies, food truck events with live music, markets, excellent cafes and miles of beach to enjoy.

Phillip (35) is an Architect in Tauranga, enjoys running, gym, kayaking and cycling. Stephanie has a business degree and is now a busy stay at home Mother to a 5 year old girl and 3 year old boy. Stephanie (33) loves excellent coffee, reading, movies, taking photos of the children, cooking, pilates and natural health. A pet cat lives here too.

We are looking for a diligent helper for a short stay of 3-7 days to help around the house and garden. Helping jobs include spring cleaning, window cleaning, weeding the garden, pruning simple plants, and car cleaning. We also have outdoor furniture that needs oiling for helpers with specific skills in that area. Around 4 hours help per day would be so appreciated! One helper is ideal, but we could consider a couple/two friends for several nights if we have enough helping jobs at the time.

We will prepare delicious healthy meals (including lunch to have here or take out with you). Including fresh salad, herbs and fruit from our productive garden. Our lovely guest room has a Queen bed and is air conditioned when needed. Bathroom is shared with the children. Unlimited high speed WiFi in the house. I will enjoy sharing local knowledge (especially the best coffee in many towns!) and travel suggestions with you.

We prefer that you speak conversational English and are happy to help you practice. Trustworthy helper needs to fit in with clean living, Christian family. No smoking, no excessive drinking, no drugs or guests. Our children have special diets (gluten and dairy free) so we can easily cater for helpers with similar requirements.

We know you will enjoy exploring our lovely beach town in your time off. It is best to have a car.

We look forward to hearing from you if we sound like a good match for you :)
