We are a family of five, our children are 11, 9, and 7. We live right next to the shops in Island Bay, Wellington, close to all amenities and a short bus ride from the city.
We enjoy meeting new people and have travelled quite a bit in Europe, Canada, and the Pacific. We are used to advising on good things to do and see around Wellington and can often show you around or point you in the right direction.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We would like help with the garden this summer. We plan on digging and edging some planting beds and putting in mulch etc. For a particularly adventurous sort, we have some concrete that needs breaking up so we can replace it with garden too.
We have a self-contained sleepout with its own entrance, double bedroom, kitchenette, toilet and shower. It's not brand new but it's quiet and pleasant and has on-demand high pressure hot water. We have painted it and it has new lino and carpet.
It has a queen size bed, and room for a child or two on camp beds if you don't mind being a bit squashed. We have had two adults and two small children successfully but more than that is a bit tight.
There is a guest wifi connected to a high speed internet connection. Guests can usually stream Netflix without any problems.
You are welcome to sort your own food (there is a supermarket straight across the road or plenty of local food options) or come and eat with us.
In downtime, the south coast and its walks are very close, or the no 1 bus to the city leaves only a few metres away from the house.
You are welcome to hang out in the back yard (where the sleepout is) or come and go as you please. We are happy to have you hang out with us if it suits you.
