We are a family of four, with two young children, and two friendly cats. Our house is on the Otago Peninsula, overlooking the harbour (a 15 min drive from the city centre, and 5 mins walk to a bus stop with regular buses to and from the city). We always enjoy having guests to stay, and we look forward to meeting you!
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Past guests have enjoyed being part of our family, joining in with community/school events, and using our house as a base from which to explore the Otago Peninsula. We are a 5 min walk from a harbour beach and have kayaks and bikes that guests are welcome to use.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We will ask our guests to help with jobs around the garden (weeding, trimming, sweeping), and/or around the house (stripping wallpaper, cleaning, preparing meals, helping with the children).
Guests will have their own bedroom in the family house, with one double bed. The house has one shared bathroom. We have no special dietary restrictions and like for guests to join us for family meals. We are happy to accommodate vegetarians and other dietary requirements, but please let us know in advance so we can plan our meals accordingly.
