  • Description

    Description

    We are located in the Far North of the North Island, between Doubtless Bay and Kaitaia.

    We have 3 acres of land, with 2 streams running though, a few established fruit trees and a small vegetable garden.
    We have a goat, chickens, kittens and guineapigs.
    There is always something in the garden to be chopped, weeded or tidied up. It's never ending!


    We are a friendly, sociable family of 5, and we would love you to come and be a part of it.
    Our children are 13, 8 and 6.
    The children and I have recently spent 14 months in the UK, and also visited Dubai and Thailand on route, and they loved every moment.
    All the children are involved in scouting, as well as myself.
    They love exploring beaches, camping, and swimming/snorkelling.
    Our eldest plays the ukulele and has a go at surfing.
    They all love playing Lego, board/card games and on the Xbox too!

    Plenty of great beaches around here. The closest being Cable Bay, in Doubtless Bay, just a 10 minute drive away.
    Matai Bay, our favourite camping spot is just 30 minutes away, and a couple of lovely lakes are all within a 15 minute drive from here.
    90 mile Beach is also about 20 minutes away.
    Our nearest town Kaitaia is a 15 minute drive.

    We are looking for people that relate well to young children, have patience and enjoy playing with them. Helping around the home with day to day chores and keeping the house clean. Some mowing and weeding, and the odd tree chopping and clearing.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    It's important to us that you get on well with children, and are non smokers.
    Kaitaia has a cinema, library, outdoor pools and shops.
    You can do a bus tour to Cape Reinga which is fun and informative.
    There is a bus to Kaitaia which caters for people getting to and from work so it leaves early and returns dinner time which anyone can use, but I am often out and have room in the car for extras.
