Hi, I live in a comfortable house in a cute community, close to a beach, and about one hour by train from Wellington. I have two spare bedrooms and am keen to swap some gardening and general help, for accommodation.
I love this part of NZ and am a keen photographer. I'm always happy to share ideas of what to do and see here and in other parts of NZ.
Raumati South is a fantastic place all year round for walks on the beach, great sunsets, close to bike trails, cafes and restaurants.
I can offer some fun, friendly ideas about travel in NZ, help with English or basic Maori vocab and pronunciation, and introduce visitors to a Kiwi lifestyle.
Gardening, painting, housework if it's wet outside. I need to get the painting done before winter!
English, basic te reo Maori, schoolgirl French
House with great deck, one double bedroom, one bedroom with two beds, own bathroom. Food would be provided or shared depending on what was needed. Vegan, vegetarian, or gluten free can all be catered to. Cooking can be shared.
Plenty to do locally, biking, visit bird sanctuary at Kapiti Island, tramping, swimming in sea, visit Wellinton via train or own transport. Cinema, cafes all in walking distance or within a few kilometres. I work in Wellington three days a week and from home. The house is shared with two cats,
