We live on a large section on the edge of Tauranga. We have lots of fruit trees, a large vegie garden, a few chicken, a worm farm, a crazy demanding cat & a large Newfoundland dog. There is always lots to do to keep the place in order (although generally a week at a time is all we can accomodate). Autumn is a busy time preserving all our produce - we make a lot of our food & what we do buy is generally wholesome & natural.
We have a tennis court, small gym & swimming pool which you are welcome to use.
We have travelled extensively.
We are non smokers & expect you to refrain from smoking in the house please.
Would love help with learning French/Italian if that's possible!

Help around the house
We are very international in our outlook having travelled extensively & love expanding our knowledge. We would love to share with you our culture & can help with planning further trips around NZ.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Help will depend on the time of the year & will vary between garden work - weeding, trimming of hedges, stacking wood, turning the compost, mowing lawn etc or house work - dusting, cleaning floors & windows. We'd always be happy for you to cook a meal - especially something typical from your country!

Tauranga is a beautiful city on the coast - we are a 15 min drive from an amazing surf beach. Tauranga is also very well placed in the central north island - with Rotorua, Hobbiton, The Coromandel & Auckland all close by. I'm happy to collect you from a bus - if that's necessary.
