We are 'Kiwi' household of 3 older humans, a small dog and a cat. Large house within a suburb of Tauranga New Zealand. We have been hosting backpackers for approximately 6 years as exchange 2 hours of your time to do 'chores' for a room and use of amenities within the house.
Help in the house
We are just normal older New Zealanders [children are grown and left home], who enjoy having younger people in the house again.
"Chores" include standard house cleaning, including windows, some gardening, some chatting and learning about each others country. You supply and cook your own food. We supply kitchen and cooking equipment- plates, cups, knives etc, a fridge for your own use. Bathroom mostly your own use[occasional other guest may use] Use of Laundry and Wifi included. No experience necessary, what you don't know I am happy to teach. English is the Only language we speak. [sometimes translator app is needed :) ]
If you can combine paid employment elsewhere with doing 'chores' here all is good [most can]
