  • Description


    Hi I'm Pauline a mum of 5 kids though only 2 live at home now. Christiana 27 and Oliver 16
    I'm a midwife, so work crazy hours.
    We are quite a sporty family and love getting into the outdoors. We also have a piano in the house for anyone who likes to play.
    We have had homestay students stay with us in the past and have formed some long -term bonds with them. We have had some fantastic workaways stay with us who have transformed my garden however weeding it is a constant battle. I also need help with housework.
    A bonus would someone who would be able to build a compost for me.
    So if you'd like to come and stay with us we look forward to hearing from you.
    Also a biggie ...... do you like dogs. We have a 2 year old Labrador puppy Penny who would think you where wonderful if you walked her. She has a sister in crime Arya the ragdoll kitten and the one who puts them in there place Sunny the matriarchal cat.
    We live close to the city and are on a very good bus route that can get you to most places around Auckland.
