We're a great family to stay with- really down to earth, kind, and generous. You'll get heaps of garden experience, language immersion, and so much more.
We're searching for a kind, honest, and energetic duo- friends or couple, at least the age of 21. STARTING IMMEDIATELY.
We're looking for non-smokers, who have experience with children and animals. Ideally, you'd be keen to cook, garden (pruning, weeding, planting, etc.), do housework, light building/construction, painting, and other various DIY projects around our 100+ year old property, in exchange for your own warm, private accommodation in a separate cottage, as well as good conversation, food for breakfast and dinner, endless toddler and pet entertainment, and access to our bicycles and kayak for your day adventures.
This host offers a language exchange
Private, self-contained accommodation in a separate dwelling. You have your own bed, bathroom with shower, kitchenette, deck, etc.
-We are located in the heart of Portobello, with just a two minute walk to a well-stocked store, restaurants, cafes, bar, museum, etc.
-Gorgeous views of the water, hills, and playground
-Short drive to all the beaches, penguins, seals, sea lions, Albatross Colony, walking/hiking trails
-Local bus service
-Use of bicycles, kayak and fishing rods
Local bus service provides regular transportation to and from Dunedin City, and much is within walking distance from our cottage, but having your own transportation is necessary, as we hope you take advantage of all the glorious sites the Peninsula has to offer, most of which is free!
Non-smokers and drinkers (at least not while you're on our property), as we're a family with two young children in a quiet, peaceful community.
