  • Description


    I am studying linguistics and French and also speak fluent Hungarian. I am interested in natural health, homebirthing, homeschooling, craft and organic gardening. I also play the lute and a tiny bit of mandolin. I have children, but I am looking for a traveler to stay when they are away on holidays. Depending on the person staying, it is possible to have him/her while the children are home too.
    We are definitely not into drugs, smoking or drinking.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am also studying to be a linguist, so I have a keen awareness of the language learning process and and openness to other cultures. Travelers would be exposed to open minded and good conversations as well as organic gardening and healthy food preparation.

  • Help


    I am Eva. I am studying French and would like to practice speaking with someone, but occasional garden help is welcome in my organic garden and if my children are here, they are happy to interact with our visitor.

  • Accommodation


    We live walking distance from the city in a quiet street. There is a room available in the house. We can talk about the food preparation with the individual staying. I am happy to cook or we can share the task, but we generally avoid red meat and dairy. The traveler needs to provide her own internet access and phone.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    It is easy to walk or ride a bike into the city, where there is a craft market on Saturdays and lots of cafes. Tahunanui beach is about 10 minutes by car or a half hour bike ride away. There are nice walks nearby (but they are closed at the moment, because of extreme fire danger). There are also historic houses, like Warwick house, Melrose house within walking distance. We prefer a person who is fairly clean and quiet and does not play loud music. We also don't want cigarette smoking, drugs or alcohol at our house.
