  • Description

    Description

    We're an outgoing sociable couple (age 36 & 42 but still pretty young habits) with two very cute & mostly very well behaved daughters (2 & 4 years old)

    Julie is German, Rob is kiwi, we're both professionals who've traveled and partied a bit in our day (parent life is a lot more home focused now). Rob surfs & kites & we both snowboard.

    We're looking for a 'high energy' person (female preferred - but guys OK if you're really keen on playing with our daughters), or a couple (only if you have a car & are very independent - ie you like to go out a lot when you’re not helping us), who speak good English & love getting up at 7am (this is a must), living in a nice clean house, cooking, a little garden work and looking after kids.

    Cute modern inside but traditional looking 4 bedroom cottage with a nice countryside view, you can see the sea in the distance, beautiful sunsets are common.

    Nice big upstairs room with a deck for you, and a queen size bed.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our nearby beach is a beautiful big sunbathing, kiting & surfing beach (Muriwai), which is similar to the next one down the coast - which Taylor Swift called 'the most beautiful beach she's ever seen'

    We have a mountain bike, lots of kite gear & surfboards (mostly around 6.3 performance style boards - if you're a beginner we could probably get a beginner one organised too) which you can use as much as you want. Rob heads out surfing or kiting 3-5 times a week so can take you out then if you want a guide.

    There's mountain bike tracks (including one that hosted the NZ downhill nationals once), a skate park & tennis courts nearby if you're into any of those things.

    Note there’s nothing to do in walking distance - the nearest stuff to do, including the beach, is 10 minutes drive away. Downtown Auckland is 30 minutes drive. Also we don’t have a TV.
