Help with our family at home in Nelson, New Zealand
We are Milo and Kimberly, and have lived in Nelson for 16 years after sailing here from Canada. We have two wonderful (no doubt all parents say this ;) children and would like some occasional help caring for them, as well as help around the house and garden.
We operate a yacht charter business during the spring and summer, and Milo also teaches at a maritime school. Kimberly taught English as a second language, and we would also like practice learning other languages.
Would you like a place to call home for a bit?
We are a Christian family and would appreciate someone mindful of our values. No parties/drugs.

For native Spanish or French speakers, this is a great opportunity to practice speaking English - Kimberly is an ESL teacher and happy to help.
We have a yacht charter business, so there may be a sailing opportunity.
We want our children to learn about different cultures, so will consider anyone who can speak at least some English.
