We live in a quaint 3 bedroom house in the town of a rural area named Hunterville (50 mins north of Palmerston North and 50 south of Whanganui)!! Very central for visiting many of the middle/lower North Island tourist attractions; just over an hour to Mt Ruapehu, 2 hours to Taupo, 3 hours to Rotorua, 2 hours to Wellington, 3 hours to New Plymouth.

We have 2 acres, on which we have many pets; sheep, miniature ponies, pig, chickens, cat and dog. We also have other horses which live just down the road from us. We are a small family, just myself and my cute son Elliot, who is 4 and Paisley who is 1 and a half years old and baby #3 is due in October.

We are friendly, easy going people who love to share our home with guests. We have had 2 live in au pairs and lots of people stay with us through Help X too. I work from home doing a variety of different things - network marketing, in home child care and relief teaching.

Hunterville is a friendly and bustling community, with lots of opportunity for social interaction, especially in the way of sport and drinks at the pub! We are just off the state highway, so very convenient for busses, shops etc.

We would love to have some help about the place in the way of outside and inside chores, such as lawn mowing, gardening, house cleaning and cooking dinner. There are also some bigger jobs we would be keen for a bit of support with such as painting, water blasting, cleaning gutters and the house. For the right person there may be a little bit of child-minding and horse work.

You will have a private cabin to stay in (bathroom etc in the house though). Clean and tidy environment. Unlimited wifi. Great company!! Prefer to have people for at least 3 days, but no longer than 10 days.

Looking for some one now ;) .

Ideal person/s would be mature, down to earth, happy to pitch in and focused on living a healthy life style. 4 hours of work per day is expected and I will provide a list of chores per day. In return we will immerse you in our life/culture and take you with us on our travels, which will allow you to see much of NZ most people do not.

I am looking to have Help-X people regularly, so even if you cannot come now, let me know because you can 'book in' dates with us for the future.

Also, my parents live in Taranaki and are always keen to have Help X people too, generally the ones we have had here go to them after us :)

Texts or emails are best due to busy life/kids. Thanks and look forward to hearing from you :)
