We are a small family in a big house in Devonport. We had 6 children, but only one (13) is at home now. So we have big hearts and lots of room. We are 100m from beautiful Narrowneck Beach, and a short walk/bus then ferry ride to Auckland CBD. We also have 20 acres of land at Mangawhai (1 1/2 hrs north) with animals to care for, planting, weeding, farming etc to do. We are flexible with who stays, how long for, and what help is done.
