  • Description


    Currently taking a break from having people after recent experiences. Enjoy your time in NZ!

    We are a young dairy farming family in Mokoreta, Southland, New Zealand. Milking approx 1500 cows.

    We love having people in our house and think it's good for our children to learn about different cultures from a early age.

    Jobs are limitless - the general house jobs & childcare, to more exciting things like building a raised vegetable garden, renovating a wee hut or building a tree hut in our magnificent tree in front of our house.

    We have three young children - girls are 4 & 2 and a wee boy 5 months old plus a dog, a cat, chickens, horse & a pony.

    We can accomodate couples or individuals. Bedroom with own bathroom provided. (Note - bathroom will be shared with other house guests.)

    Experience with young children & love for animals is a must! Due to our location a drivers license is ideal. Local town Wyndham is 20 minutes away with larger town Gore 45 minutes away and Invercargill City 55 minutes away. Dunedin international airport is 1 hour 30 minutes away.

    Prior to contacting us please google Mokoreta and locate it on the map so you know where we are :).

    Please only message us if you have experience with young kids, understand that they're busy/noisy/messy & don't plan on spending most your time with us on the Internet in your bedroom.

    So we know you have taken the time to read our whole profile when contacting us can you please tell us your favourite meal.
