We live in a unique setting out on the east coast. Kirsty and I are Gisborne locals but we spent a fair bit of time overseas so love having overseas travellers to talk about different parts of the world with and expose our children to different ways of life. We work hard to include our visitors in everything we do from surfing at the beach and sailing in the bay through too school sports and cultural events. We pride ourselves in make our travelers part of the family.
Always got projects on the go, usually involving building, gardening,tree planting, painting, firewood, looking after the kids.
Accommodation is cool glamping tent with a double bed and separate shower and composting toilet. You have your own space 200m from the house.
We'll feed you all you need in exchange for 4-5 hours work per day. We can do vegetarian option also.
We are based next to a large farm owned by kirstys brother so often people who stay will go for hikes to see spectular views of the bay, or to the shearing shed to watch sheep been shorn.
