  • Description


    Hi all workawayers!

    We are a lovely family of 4, we have a gorgeous little girl who is 9months old and a stepson who is 14. My stepson stays every second weekend. We live in the Kapiti Coast ( an hour away from Wellington city) 2 minute walk to the beach and 10 minute walk to local cafès, bars and local shopping area.
    We are a musical family, we love playing music together as well as games, and often have shared dinners with our awesome neighbours.
    We are currently doing up our house and would love to get some help doing odd jobs. Our house is a large 4 bedroom with a massive garden.

    P.S every second weekend my partners son stays so those weekends are unavailable, or workaway guests will use a different bed for those weekends. The 22nd and 23rd of February are when he’s here next, and every second weekend after that.

    Look forward to talking to you!

Our beaches are stunning and our community do full moon drumming every full moon which is a very cool and freeing experience.
