I am looking for one or two people to come and enjoy life with me. I have availability until 13 December.
While you are here you will be welcome to participate in our daily life, to learn about how Kiwis live, especially in a home-educating enviroment.
While you are here I may do some gardening, maybe some painting, cutting firewood, cleaning etc. You will be welcome to participate but there is no expectation, or requirement for you to do so - you will be here as our guest.
We have a large property with heaps of apple trees, almond and peach trees, apricot and plum trees, plus lots of gardens.
I love cooking so I can make some great meals for you.
We have a warm, comfortable place for you to stay. It is very private.
We've had people stay while they kit out a van with a bed and cupboards etc, so if this is your plan, we have numerous tools that you are welcome to use.
We offer unlimited Wi-Fi, and unlimited food. You are welcome to cook yourself some food anytime.

We have a couple of road bikes you are welcome to use, and our van is available sometimes too, especially if you are looking at buying a vehicle and need to go and look at some.
Otherwise, I can usually organise a ride into Christchurch or Rangiora if you need to go there.


Our family is Mum, Dad (mostly away on business), a 16 year old boy (Micah) and 11 year old girl (Selah). we have approximately 16 chooks, 3 noisy geese and 3 dogs.

We can walk to the waipara river and there's a great swimming hole nearby.

I enjoy board games and making new friends.
Looking forward to meeting you!

P.S. The map doesn't work on this listing. I'm not sure why, but if you click on the map you will go to the wrong place.
