Thank you :-) ----------------------------------------- We are a well travelled, educated, happy and friendly family with 3 kids living in a semi-rural part of beautiful Waiheke Island, New Zealand. Waiheke Island is just 45 minutes ferry ride from Auckland City - but it is a "world away" from city life with fantastic beaches, bush walks, great cafes (and awesome coffee!), friendly locals and much more! Our property is surrounded by farm land, trees and a nature reserve and is 15 minutes walk to world-class Palm Beach for excellent swimming / walks & lots of fresh air! See the pictures we've posted of Waiheke (note these are not all taken from our property!) We are seeking a friendly, happy responsible girl (minimum 1 month - longer preferred) who speaks good English to assist us with house duties / looking after our kids. Our kids are Rudolf Steiner educated 2, 5 and 6 yrs of age, fun and creative and (mostly!) well behaved! They would like to hang out with someone who is fun and relaxed who can enjoy extended playtimes with them, drawing, playing on the trampoline, playing with toys, singing, dancing story time etc - while their mum looks after their 18mo old baby sister and their Dad works in the studio located on the property (I run a graphic and webdesign business so if you have experience/skills in this area - please make that clear as there may be some office work available on a P/T basis!)
Area: BasilicataMy name is Enrica, I am 27 years, pianist, and together with my two sisters manage our vineyard. We live in a beautiful spot of the Basilicata region, among the vineyards, wild animals and the sea on the horizon. I deal mainly with the sale of wine and the organization of events, but lately I'm also interested in our farm. I'd like to welcome foreigners to practice with the English language, or musicians to organize something together. Our company is great, you can help in a thousand different ways, you just want to have to learn and experience in the heart of nature. Mi chiamo Enrica, sono una ragazza di 28 anni, sono pianista e assieme alle mie due sorelle gestisco la nostra azienda vitivinicola. Viviamo in un angolo meraviglioso della Basilicata, tra distese di vigneti, animali allo stato brado e il mare sull'orizzonte. Io mi occupo principalmente della vendita del vino e dell'organizzazione di eventi, ma ultimamente mi sto interessando anche al nostro agriturismo. Mi piacerebbe ospitare stranieri per esercitarmi con l'inglese o il francese, o musicisti per organizzare qualcosa insieme. La nostra azienda è grande, si può essere d'aiuto in mille modi diversi, basta solo avere voglia di imparare e di vivere un'esperienza nel cuore della natura.

Area: OtagoHi I am a strong believer in family comes first. In my village of Oamaru there are many artistic creative people. It has a working Victorian precinct that is of world heritage with many attractions. My mother and brother's family live here, also my daughter and her children are near by. My retirement dream of a life style farm let with sheep, and extensive grounds tucked into a rural setting make for a quiet setting for an ideal quality home stay environment. Help on a small market garden would be useful as would some house hold duties. I am so proud of this area I have many day trips to showcase out neighbourhood. My main past times are, if not spent with family are playing the sport of lawn bowls and completion bridge. I also like to travel and this has made me aware of all the different cultures.
