We are looking for one person or a couple to join us from 14/15th aug for 2 weeks or longer to help in exchange for board and lodging. We have 3 kids - 4 yr twins and a 6 yr old boy. Ed is a furniture designer and Tonya a part time doctor. We are looking for someone to help us in an aupair like capacity for this period. We want someone who is great with kids, fun and firm, ideally with some experience. Our kids are boisterous and lively! We have a lovely black Lab who also would love some long walks.

We would expect about 4 hrs /day and this will be split between babysitting, helping out with kids, potentially picking up from school/pre-school, cooking some dinners , light housekeeping/laundry etc. We can also be flexible so some days could be completely off and some maybe longer than 4 hrs. There may also be some gardening starting in the next few weeks as the ground thaws!

We are well-travelled and like good food and conversation. Guests have their own room with ensuite, amazing views, 10 mins to ski field, 10 mins from Queenstown in the countryside.

Having your own transport is ideal and you do need to be able to drive for the occasional school pick up. There is a bus stop 10 mins away for buses into Queenstown and you may be able to use the car occasionally.

We have recently had 2 WOOFing couples who stayed for 3 weeks each and all agreed it was really successful. We are still in touch with them.

If you would like to join in and experience a busy young rural household we would love you to contact us.
