We are a family of four (children aged 7 and 10 years), living in a five bedroom home with a big garden, chickens, a boisterous puppy and two cats. Our children are home-schooled.

We are looking for help with child care and running the household. This involves cleaning, cooking and spending time with the children. We are also keen on help with landscaping, gardening and basic building work.

We ask for four hours work per day in exchange for a place to sleep (in your own room) and yummy, fresh, home-cooked meals: Breakfast, lunch and dinner, aswell as morning tea. We look after you well, but expect good work in return. No smokers please

We are an adventurous family and love having fun in the outdoors- kayaking, bush walking, biking and rock-climbing.

We live in a lovely little, friendly village that is a short 40-50 minute drive or train ride from Wellington city. We live close to beautiful beaches and a fantastic National Park. Paraparaumu township (where there are many shops and cafes etc), and train-station is only 5 minutes away. We are happy to lend our helpers a bike for the duration of their stay.

As well as short-term helpers (ie: 1-2 weeks), we are also interested in finding a longer term (ie:3-6 months) live-in helper that is great with children and housework.
