Come and stay with our family of 5 on our lifestyle block in the leafy suburb of Te Horo, on the Kapiti Coast. We moved back to NZ last year after travelling extensively for 19 years abroad.
There is work to do around the property helping with things like gardening, reloading firewood, clearing unwanted trees, picking fruit and lots of other things which go into keeping a property of this nature. It is largely manual labour and there is no need for childcare support as we have an Au Pair living with us as well.
Our house is 'active' and there's always plenty going on thanks to our 7yo (Isaac), 5yo (Yulisa) and 2yo (Ella), plus Milo our dog, Sugar our cat, 6 chickens and 2 cows :)
We got involved with Helpx because a) we need the help and b) we love to host people from abroad who are like minded and who share their experiences of traveling the world with us and our children. We're thrilled to be able to open our home and our family to travelers, many of whom are from countries we have spent time in.
In exchange for 25 hours work a week you receive accommodation in our beautiful home (a large room in a separate guest wing that can either be setup as a King bed or two singles, with ensuite), breakfast, lunch and dinner is provided and we have wi-fi available.
Please feel free to ask us if you have any questions - many thanks for reading. Hope to see you soon!!!
Cheers Ben, Ronel, Zac, Isa, Ella, Milo and Sugar :)
