  • Description


    QUEENSTOWN! Family home of 1 working mum and a 10 year old daughter who attends school 2 blocks walk away.

    Welcoming help with my daughter during my busy event schedule in Winter and general tidying and gardening around the new house.

    I welcome someone to assist with being at home in the morning till 8:30am when my daughter starts school and finishes school which on some days is 3pm and others its 5pm for the dates 7th AUGUST - 13th SEPTEMBER . In the weekends, she stays with her Nana in Cromwell, so its just the week days. I welcome help with making dinner and getting her ready, some mornings I will need to leave early, someone to help guide her since she is old enough to do most things on her own now.

    We enjoy having international people at the house with us and learning each others culture. We have only had great experiences in the past!

    My daughter is Japanese and I would love to her to be exposed to different cultures.

    If you are interested in knowing more about us please let me know details about yourself:
    age, nationality, gender, English fluency, plans for when in NZ and in Queenstown, interests and experience with kids.

    I look forward to meeting you!
    This could be a great match if you want to go skiing! or even work from home.

  • Accommodation


    One bedroom with a double bed and the bathroom next door which is shared with my daughter. I have my own bathroom.
    There is space in the garage to store you gear if you have any and the living, kitchen and dining is open plan.
    I am a vegetarian but I am OK with people cooking meat in the house and my daughter will eat anything. We are working to live a healthy clean lifestyle but also like to enjoy a glass of wine or a cold beer in the sunshine on the deck!
    I enjoy cooking when I am not too busy.
    The stay doesn't include food sorry but you are welcome to use the dry food in the pantry to cook with- there is heaps!!
