  • Description


    We are a small family of three (mum, dad and 4 year old son) and we live in beautiful akaroa (1hr from christchurch). Our town is very very busy in summer with a large amount of tourists and backpackers. I work as a manager of a very popular bar and could offer you a part time job aswel working around your hours with me, my husband works in drainage and roadworks. We live in a large family home right on the beach in takamatua (3min drive from akaroa) which is alot more peaceful in summer than being right in the town. We are a very down to earth and chilled out family.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Akaroa is a very diverse community based town. The people here are very friendly and my husbands family were one of the first settlers here so he is very much a local. There are so many things to do on your spare time and you will have alot of it so getting an extra job would not be hard, also if thats what you are looking for i could offer you a part time job at the beautiful bar i work at. Akaroa is a beautiful picturesque town and you would not be sorry to spend time here.
