  • Description


    We are a working couple with a house that is so much quieter now that we only have one teenage boy at home. Not forgetting our springer spaniel Suess and one eyed cat Jack.
    In the past we traveled the world and we would love to provide an opportunity for you to experience life like a local while helping us out on odd tasks around our section/garden and home. We live in Havelock North Village on a large section under Rongokako, (the sleeping giant) Te Mata Peak.
    Kerry is a chef with his own food truck/caravan so works from home during the day and I am a kindergarten teacher.
