  • Description

    Description

    I've been many things during my life, and I like the variety. I'm qualified in Architecture, and Sustainability and I like to look after my world as much as I can. Travelers are such a great part of humanity; it's so fascinating and fun to meet them! I have a wide range of interests; I am a writer, and I love to talk about - pretty much everything! I really enjoy meeting interesting, good people, and I like to make you feel at home. My idea is that it feels as much like a family as possible for the time you are here.

    I'm doing renovations on my house, as well as looking after and developing the big garden. There's something for everyone!

    Come and enjoy this beautiful harbour-side location.

    -Native forests and birds, bush and coast walks

    Being a host is like traveling - but the world comes to me! There are so many great people from around the world who I get to meet. I like to make them feel really welcome, and help them enjoy their time in Wellington. The bonus is now I've got lots of friends to visit in Europe and elsewhere! I have been a host since 2013, (with travel breaks) and I love it! I think you will like this area. It's a terrific, safe, friendly, neighbourhood - really the closest thing to a genuine small village I've ever lived in. The setting is beautiful, with great walks on the hill in the beech forest, full with native birds. And the coast walks are great too. It's beautifully quiet here, but Wellington City is only 20-30 minutes away.

    I am doing renovating, so there are practical things to do on the house, in the garden, or inside. There is something to suit your skills! I enjoy teaching new skills to others. But if you have practical skills, that's great! Let me know what they are. I am flexible about working hours. Approximately half a day's work in exchange for bed and food. If you want to work all one day, and take the next day off, I am happy to talk about matching our desires and needs.
