    Description

    Hi my name is Jennie I live in a beautiful historical home over looking the ocean in New Plymouth, Taranaki, NZ the 2nd best region to visit in the world 2017 according to the Lonely planet. Originally my husband and I came from the UK and settled in this place of Paradise 30 years ago. Our family has grown up and flown the nest and I am just left with Rosie my friendly 8 year old Golden Retriever. I am close to town and the amazing walkway and on a clear day can see the mountain that dominates our region. There is so much to do and see here. I love hosting people I work running various kids and youth groups and an internship for young people that want to train for Christian mission and leadership. I travel a number of times each year to the Philippines for cross cultural Christian and medical missions. I have a large garden and historical home both of which are always in need of some attention and Holiday home 20 minutes away in Onaero.

    My garden is quite large and borders a river and grows so prolifically it is always in need of pruning, weeding and sweeping. My house too is over a 100 years old and is in need of some touch ups and a bit of painting. I also have a holiday Home which I need help getting cleaned at times.
    I work with kids and youth and love for them to meet new people from overseas and hear all about their culture and life journey.

    What else ...

    I am ideally situated if you would like to explore Taranaki, 15mins walk to town, I have bikes for cycling the foreshore walkway, the surf beach is 2 mins away including a roller blade rink and lots of green space for walking. If you surf then you will love this region, I can usually get access to surf boards and SUP boards. I am quite a social person and enjoy the outdoors so love lots of activity and time to get to know guests.
