Our busy family is looking for someone to help us in Owaka, the Catlins. We are a family of five (Kiwi Mother, Japanese Father, 12 year old girl, 10 year old boy and 6 year old girl), with three cats, a dog, some lambs and goats, living on a lifestyle property just outside the small town of Owaka. We are 15 minutes drive away from the coast, and it is a great area for sightseeing, fishing and walking.
We are about 1.5 hours drive from Dunedin.
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Our children are very open to people of other cultures, as they are half Japanese. So as well as getting the Kiwi experience the traveller will get a Japanese experience too. There are a lot of great sites to see in the area, waterfalls, beaches, seals and penguins.
We need someone to help out with our gardening and help looking after the children, especially over the Summer holidays. The children are all well behaved and love to get outside jumping on the trampoline, biking, etc.
We have a very large garden, so if you enjoy gardening that's great!
You will need to do some household chores and some cooking (we will provide the food!).
Own room, with comfortable bed. Wi-Fi.
The Catlins is a great area for exploring the outdoors. There are many places to walk, rivers and sea for fishing and swimming, and a great place to see birds and wildlife.
We are a very relaxed family and enjoy spending time together and having fun.
