We are a young NZ family who left our city lives behind in Auckland 5 years ago to live in beautiful suburban Papamoa Beach. Our spacious, sunny home is only 1.8km to the beach, close to bus route and 20 minutes drive to Tauranga city or Mount Maunganui. This beachside 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. Stephanie is busy with the children at home and driving them to school, preschool, appointments, gymnastics, ballet and swimming lessons.

We are looking for a lovely helper for a short stay of around 1 week to help around the house and garden. 4 hours help per day in exchange for accommodation, all meals and unlimited wifi.

Our helping jobs are easy and unexciting, but we greatly appreciate your hard work and attention to detail. Jobs include housework, window cleaning, oven cleaning, weeding the garden, and car cleaning. We also have outdoor furniture that needs oiling for helpers with specific skills in that area. As most of our jobs are outdoor, it would be all weather work, and sometimes working by yourself. Childcare is not planned to be part of the exchange unless we both want it to be, but liking kids is essential.

We will prepare delicious, simple, healthy meals to share together. Including fresh salad, herbs and fruit from our productive garden. Our lovely guest room has a Queen bed and is air conditioned. Bathroom is shared with the children. I will enjoy sharing local knowledge (especially the best cafe`s in town!) 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 easiest to have a car. We look forward to hearing from you if we sound like a good match for you :)
