    Description

    We are an easy going couple with 2 boys 12 and 14 years old. Our other 4 children are grownup and do not live at home with us. we live on 2 acres with a cat, dog and a handful of chickens. We have sold all our ponies but sometimes graze other peoples. We are a Christian home schooling family living in a pack house that we are converting into a home. We spent our weeks down here in the country and weekends in our flat in Auckland city. About once a month we spend a quiet weekend down in the South Waikato at our holiday home.

    We are interested in having help getting our 2 acres under control. The grazing is fine, but the tress and hedges need serious pruning. We are also needing help to put in some fencing, painting the pack-house and constructing a raised vege garden, and some serious landscaping in the small back garden involving a lot of digging!
    If you speak French or Hebrew we would like you to teach our boys. One has been learning Hebrew for 2 years and the other is a beginner learning French.
    Unfortunately we can not take anyone before 1st February 2015 due to renovating the bathroom.

    We live in an open plan converted pack house with 4 bedrooms. Still a little rough around the edges but cosy and scrubbing-up well! It's very quiet surrounded by farms. Waiuku township is 1/2hr walk away. In the weekend we live in our 3 bedroom flat in Auckland city with city sounds around close to train and bus stations.

    Rural walks, with beaches 10 mins drive away. Small township with library, cafes and other shops. Nearby is a vintage railway to enjoy. If you would like a laid-back rural life with plenty of time to get own with your favourite past time - reading, writing, artwork etc during the week, punctuated by travelling with us to Auckland City each weekend. Evening and weekends will be your free time.
