  • Description


    We are a family of five on a small lifestyle block and occasionally need help with gardening, projects, house sitting etc. The kids love meeting new people and learning new things, answering their questions could be a full time job! We have pets in the house and ducks and chickens (and sometimes cows) outside.
    We love sharing info about our area, and other places of we can. There is plenty to see and do here in Northland and we want to make your stay as fun and positive as possible.

  • Help


    Mainly we'd love some help in the garden now and then, or in a particular project we've got on. The kids would always love people to talk to and play with, so you must love kids! Sometimes we'd just be looking for someone to house sit while we go camping/exploring elsewhere.
