    Description

    Hi lovely people,
    Can host someone for January. To help for the summer school holidays.

    We are a family of 5 with animals and big house and gardens. We always appreciate a bit of help around the place. In exchange for your wonderful help....
    You will have a gorgeous double bedroom with your own private bathroom, with so much comfort an beautiful views as well as a good experience with an NZ family.
    We have two horses, a cat, a dog, a rabbit and guinea pigs.

    Big home, Lots of space. We are tidy, organised and busy. Rural life but close to the town of Masterton. Our nearest city is the very cool Wellington. So we are not isolated. 8kms to Masterton.
    We have bikes you can use. A spa pool/jacuzzi. We live next to the river we go swimming there in summer. Gorgeous walks on the countryside all around us. We have wifi.
    The scenery is spectacular! 360' views.
    please message us if you would like to come. I can tell you more then.
    Thanks
    The Family.

    We are happy to share our home as a base for you to explore from. Typical kiwi life. Busy Mum and dad. Kids very busy too! We are happy to recommend things to do on your time off. If you do more than 4-5 hours we can give you that extra time off on other days of course to travel. We can help with your english and help you with information about NZ.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our area is popular for mountain walks, camping, swing bridge, beaches, lighthouses, vineyards and wine festivals (very good wines) and farming. There’s skydiving, horse riding, quad biking, claybird shooting, yoga, Pilates, fishing, surfing. (To get to the mountain walks you will need to drive or cycle, the bus does not go to the beach or mountains). Lots of rivers. The town has a great park nice for picnics, with a lake and easy walks. There’s a pool, library, post office, cinemas, museum/gallery, info centre, supermarkets, cafes, shops....everything you need in a town. Population 27,000.
    There are four busy towns close to us and Masterton is our nearest (8kms), the capital city Wellington is just 90mins drive away. Or there is a train to Wellington from Masterton.
    The beaches are 45minute drive from our house (if you have a car). There is no bus to the beach. Lovely river to swim in nearby in the warm weather.

    From September to May we have nice weather. (17-39') lots of festivals and outdoor lifestyle events. Quiet time is from june to august inclusive, it is winter (4' -15' ) and can be wet and cold. Everyone hibernates and there are no public holidays in the winter!
