Hi :) we live on an acre in Brixton 10-15 minutes North East of New Plymouth, 10 minutes walk to the beach, close to a surf break. We are me, Sam and nine year old Bijou, our little dog and cat, five chickens and two ducks.

We've been doing work exchanges for a while now and it's always really interesting..with wonderful to mediocre experiences. Mostly its been awesome.

We live in a great place and offer a comfortable and social environment to stay in. We are currently (for the rest of 2019) living in a big shed..its all very functional but open plan living.

The primary thing were looking for is a sweet exchange. One where we all leave feeling really happy..and pleased with having gotten to know one another.

Length of stay is anything from a couple of days to a few days depending on our compatibility and amount of work we have to offer.

The activities wed like help with are gardening, digging, stacking wood, general maintenance and/or some house work.

Our expectations of you are that you work well and attentively, also at a decent pace and with care and that youre happy to be engaging with children.

We ask that you share in the dishes and keep your space tidy. Also we appreciate lovely manners and good hygiene. We are generally early risers and start the day at 6-7am though we are flexible with what hours you do.

We like to guarantee good communication, manners and hospitality and also clarity about what wed like done. We provide you with warm, clean and tidy accommodation, a really comfy bed and decent meals (this means you are full when leaving the table). We provide a healthy diet.

You are free to use the internet (unlimited) and mobile phone to make NZ and Australian calls. You have the use of the television (netflix and movies/series on hard drive) and stereo (including spotify).

You should at all times feel you can talk to us about any issues you may have.

If you dont like kids or solely looking for cheap accommodation we're probably not the hosts for you.

Otherwise we look forward to meeting you :)

Please feel free to ask any questions.
