Hi there, we are a family of two teen boys Rourke 17 and Rupert 16, an 9 year old boy Eden and 26 month old baby Louis. Maria - a Pilates teacher and life coach. Simon works as a builder.
Non work time you are welcome to be away from our family for our own family time however at times we come together to enjoy everyone's company. We always enjoy and appreciate our international helpers.
We have 2 cats and a dog, so please no allergies to any animals.
Located 10 mins to Kerikeri and 10 mins to Paihia beach.
Length of time: We prefer helpers to stay a minimum of 1 month so our younger children don’t have too much change and our animals get to know you.
