  • Description


    Sam and I have a large lifestyle property plus a seperate dwelling (where you would stay), a lot of garden and a swimming pool. We both work full time, Sam as an engineer (metal work) and myself in realestate. We have two little Maltese ShihTsu dogs, sisters, Lola & Birdie. Our property is 30 min to either Rotorua or Taupo surrounded by a family Dairy Farm on SHW 5. You would need your own VEHICLE.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Sam is a local born in the area and I’ve spent time in Auckland, Tauranga, Taupo, Timaru and Dunedin. The two of us spent 2 years living in the UK and travel quite a bit. We can inform you about great places to visit in NZ and could likely set you up with other friends across the nation.

  • Help


    What we need help with is pruning trees & roses, hedges (using a hedge trimmer) and weeds (the hard on the body stuff). The swimming pool is a big job too (vacuuming).

    Seperate Dwelling. This has one room with a Queen size bed, no TV. Theres a small kitchenette with a hot plate for when we’re not at home and it’s own shower and loo. Minimal Wifi in this particular area.
    The wash house is in our home which were happy for you to use.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Nearby is Rainbow Mountain, this is a 45 minute walk up and has great bike trails down. At the bottom is Kerosene Creek a natural running hot stream we soak in. Another hotspring nearby is Hot & Cold, this is a running T section of hot and cold water.
    There is also tourist attractions nearby like Wai-o-Tapu, The Māori Village and then you’re into lots of things to do in both Rotorua and Taupo. Both big on bikes, water sports and adventure.
