After 3 years in New-Zealand, living in Auckland City, we decided to move to the countryside when we found in the Tawharanui Peninsula (10 min from Matakana) this big house with an incredible seaview. We are only 4 minutes by foot from the nearest beach.

A bit about us : We are a French couple, Laura & Matthieu and we were in the middle of a world tour when we decided to settle in New-Zealand. We now have 2 little kiwi boys, Matthias who is 4 & Liam who is 2.

We love to host travellers as we were once travellers ourselves using Helpx, couchsurfing during our adventures. Our best memories are in Australia where we travelled around the country in van for a year.

We are easy-going and open-minded people who love to share and talk about everything.

Matthieu is an IT engineer who loves cooking and Laura has a small guided tours company and loves photography. We both love nature, hiking and discovering new people and places.

Our guests need to be obviously children friendly but you are not required, unless you want to, to help taking care of the children.

What we'll be needed from our guests is a little bit of help around the house, general cleaning, gardening, refurbishing for 3 hours a day max. You will have some days off if you need to go for daytrip or just to rest.

You will have a lot of time to enjoy the magnificent surrounding : The tawharanui regional Park, Scandrett Regional Park, Snells Beach, Goat Island, etc...

But you will need to have a car to make your experience complete. If don't have a car or a driving licence and are just looking for a nice place to chill most of the time, you are welcome too. We can discuss a find a way to make it work. But keep in mind that we are in the middle of the countryside with no public transport at all.

We do not provide food but you will be staying in an apartment downstairs with your own bathroom and kitchenette. You will be more welcome to use our kitchen for the stove or the oven to cook bigger meals. And more the often you will be more than welcome to join us for dinner.

So if you want a nice and peaceful experience in what we call the real New Zealand, please don't hesitate to contact us.
