    Description

    A great attitude is the most important job requirement. Honest, clean and responsible would all come in a close second place. My wife and I mainly need a helping hand with gardening and housework. No skills required if you're willing to listen and follow instructions. Pretty simple right? No stress, no worries - fun days, helping each other :)

    We have a large family home with grounds that need a helping hand, 4-5 hours per day (20-25 hours per week), in exchange for the best time of your life! (meals and accommodation are a bonus on the fun:)

    I'm an American and my wife is English. We look forward to exchanging and sharing our cultural differences. (wouldn't it be boring if we were all the same:)

    We love our dogs! Molly is years 10 years old, Milly who is 8 and two recent additions, Stella and Sophie, two adorable Jack Russell pups. We enjoy giving them a good life, along with our 9 pet sheep and wild birds waiting each morning :)

    We encourage a positive 'can do cheerful attitude' and willingness to lend a hand. Start time is 10am, working in a stress free environment. We encourage you to relax and enjoy your moments with us and make it your home while you're with us.

    Mt Taranaki is 'AMAZING' and will truly be one of the highlights of your journey throughout N.Z. The coastal walks are spectacular too, with numerous places to explore in the region. The center of Hawera is about a 20 minute walk from our home and less on a bicycle if you'd like to explore further.

    On those sunny warm days, clothing is always an option in the spa, sunroom and back garden - :) Live free!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am an American by birth but enjoy dual citizenship with New Zealand. My wife is from England. We've lived in N.Z. for decades and feel it's our home on most days. We look forward to exchanging stories, ideas, recipes and future travel plans as we've been pretty much 'everywhere' in N.Z. at least once.
