  • Description


    Hello Helpers, My husband and I live in the magnificent Bay Of Islands. We overlook the marina, have Kiwis in our garden and are 5 minutes walk to 2 beaches. Lots of beautiful walks close by. 30 minutes to Matauri Bay and Whangaroa Harbour. 40 minutes to Paihia. You can visit Cape Reinga in a day, from here. We are 15 minutes drive from Kerikeri township, shops and restaurants, so a car Is good for exploring. We look forward to meeting you. Carl and Adrienne

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We can be flexible with work times. We prefer people aged over 25 who can communicate in English, are mature, and practical and who enjoy good food, good company and laughter. A couple or 2 friends (an extra bed is available), but are also open to singles. There is plenty of time to enjoy swimming, fishing, the beautiful walks, and exploring this very special area. We love meeting new friends and anything to do with the sea.

We prefer people who eat most things. You must like dogs. Our very friendly dog, Tama, loves walks and games.
