Hi there, We are a family of 5 living a rural lifestyle on a kiwifruit orchard. Our children are aged 4, 7 and 8. My husband works as an orchard manager and I myself work in construction. We love to get out and about but very much enjoy the peace and serenity of our home. We offer a loving home with a separate sleepout.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Travellers would benefit the best of both lifestyles as we are only 25 mins for the city centre and our beautiful coastal areas. The are a number of bush walks in our area with great swimming holes and waterfalls.
My husband and I require a responsible person over the age of 25 to mind our children in the mornings and drop our youngest to kindergarten. Also pick her in the afternoon and be around the house for the older children when they get off te school bus. So drivers licence is a must, as our vehicle is available to use. We also require general cleaning and help around the house ie, washing, cleaning of bathrooms, floor etc.
We offer a separate sleepout for privacy. Amenities are shared in the main house. Food would be included in our weekly grocery shop, if any dietary requirements are needed we could accommodate this with further arrangements. Heating is provided in the sleepout with a key for sliding door.
We are very house proud people, very open and like cleanliness. Personal hygiene is a must.
We often get out and potter around the house during the weekends to maintain out beautiful section
