    We have traveled a lot as a family and would love to hear your stories about your adventures.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are used to hosting travelers from around the world. We are immigrants ourselves and have made a life here in New Zealand. We love sharing different kinds of food from around the world and learn new dishes and teach ways of making special dishes. We will enjoy our family meals together.
    We have a huge garden with loads of native plants, trees and birds. You will learn about native species, how to grow and look after them, while hopefully seeing Tui's, bellbirds, fan-tails and other birds.
    We have some farm animals that need looking after (1 dog, 3 cows and a horse), you can learn about animal care and we have a wealth of knowledge about bigger scale farming.

  • Help


    We hope that our volunteers have energy, enthusiasm and have knowledge about things we haven't experienced and can teach us new ways and open our minds to new things and knowledge.
    We would love help with the garden and general maintenance of the property. Also with cleaning and keeping the place looking tidy. We are away sometimes; then we would like you to look after the cows, horse and dog (this is easy; so don't worry if you have no experience; we will teach you).

  • Accommodation


    You will have your own bedroom and bathroom in a 'wing' attached the the house. There is a small kitchenette; however the main house is always 'open' for use. We are a social family; however we appreciate our 'own' time and family time after dinner in the evenings.
