We are a family of four, our names are Bart and Karolina we have 2 boys 6 years old Marcin and 9 years old Mateusz. We live on a lifestyle block in Kapiti Coast, Wellington region (about 40 mins drive to Wellington CBD). Bart is a doctor in a local Urgent Care clinic and Karolina is a freelance photographer. Both our boys are full of life and very friendly. Our older boy Mateusz (or Mat) suffers from autism.
Cooking / shopping
We are both busy and have a large garden + some bush at the property and we are looking for a person (or 2) to help us in the garden and some general work around the house. Some of our gardening work involves moving heavy stones, digging and shifting dirt. You might also be asked to assist Karolina with her photography work and for an occasional help with the kids.
We have a fully self-contained, heated, comfy caravan with a kitchen, beds, fridge, toilette and shower for you to use and you are welcome to have a full use of our spa pool and swimming para pool. We will also provide you with food (we are all meat eaters but can accommodate for vegetarians ). The caravan has 5 berths but can comfortably accommodate up to 2 volunteers at the time. You may need to share it with another person so please make sure you are comfortable with this (alternatively you can crash on the sofa at home if it turns out your roommate is a snorer).
Wireless internet available in the house but the reception in the caravan is very patchy. We can share our car from time to time but for longer trips and greater freedom, it's probably best if you have your own car.
No smoking inside the house and the caravan, please.
We've just had a cancellation from a volunteer who sadly broke her leg . We can now host a person or two from 24th of November until the 4th of December. Other than that we are booked until the end of February.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
If you are interested in trying a kiwi life on a lifestyle block with beautiful views and reasonably close to Wellington this would be for you. We are a rather multicultural family. We were both born in Poland, we had spent 7 years in the UK before moving to NZ 6 years ago. Boys were born in the UK and English in their first language. We both speak English and Polish. We love the nature and weather allowing will take you camping/ fishing/boating /kayaking with us.
