Come and stay with our family of 5 on our lifestyle block in the leafy suburb of Te Horo, on the Kapiti Coast. We have recently moved back to NZ after travelling extensively for 19 years abroad.
Our house is 'active' and there's always plenty going on thanks to our 6yo (Isaac), 4yo (Yulisa) and 1yo (Ella), plus Milo our dog, Sugar our cat.
We got involved with cultural exchange because a) we need the help and b) we love to host people from abroad who are like-minded and who share their experiences of traveling the world with us and our children. We're thrilled to be able to open our home and our family to travelers, many of whom are from countries we have spent time in.
Help in the house
We're a fun, active, loving family living in a rural setting in NZ, we have a lot to share about ourselves, our lives, and that of our family. We've traveled a fair bit of the world, we love different cultures and it's something we will never stop exploring. We love where we live and we love to share it with others
There is work to do around the property helping with things like gardening, clearing the section of unwanted trees, picking fruit and lots of other things which go into keeping a property of this nature. It is largely manual labour and there is no need for childcare support as we have a helper living with us as well.
In exchange for 25 hours work a week you receive accommodation in our beautiful home (a large room in a separate guest wing that can either be setup as a King bed or two singles, with ensuite), breakfast, lunch and dinner is provided and we have wi-fi available.
Please feel free to ask us if you have any questions - many thanks for reading. Hope to see you soon!!!
Cheers Ben, Ronel, Zac, Isa, Ella, Milo and Sugar :)
