  • Description


    Happy family with 2 children, a girl (9) and a boy (8). We live in Titirangi, Auckland. We're easy going, love meeting new people, travelling, and learning other languages. We're a little further away (55 min by bus) from Auckland city center but have lots of hiking, bush trails, and beaches in the area.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our family has a lot of experience balancing travelling, raising kids and running a business. We have tried to create a life a little different than the normal, and we'd love to share our experiences with people. You don't have to be stuck in a 9-5 job all your life, you can have a lot of fun doing it your own way, being creative, thinking outside the box, and deciding what's really important to you.

  • Help


    Some tasks are in the garden - planting trees, weeding, tidying up. Other tasks are helping with the kids. We spent 2022 in Europe so we want to keep the kids exposed to other cultures and languages. Helping with activities, homework, creativity etc. Generally require 20-25 hours help a week but this can be flexible (on a mutually agreed schedule) depending on host/guest needs.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We have hosted a lot of people through another website so we're used to having people around the house.

    We can suggest nice things to do in the area (or take you there if we're available). The bus into town takes about 55 min. We are Christians so live our lives by those principals. We're a quiet household after 8pm once the kids go to bed :)
