    We are a easy going family of 5 Simon (26 years old) Lynette (26 years old) Brody (4 Years old) and Ryan (15 months) and our friendly dog Stella.

    We are looking for a solo person to come and stay with us from February 2019 for as long as you would like, to help with looking after our 2 beautiful boys (just while I run errands or do something on the farm) won’t be needing a baby sitter every day and you won’t be needed to change nappies 🤣) and to help my partner and
    I on the farm. We are in the heart of Taranaki (Tariki), we have limited public transport so must have your own car. My 4 year old goes to kindy 3 days a week and we are putting our little one into daycare 2 days a week. 35 minutes drive to the closest city New Plymouth, 10 minutes drive to the closest town Stratford.

    We just had a girl staying with us (no longer as she has gone to travel the world more :) she is from the Netherlands she is more than happy to give us a review/reference. It’s been great having her here we will miss her being around our friends and family.

    There is a huge bedroom, with furnishings.

    At the moment you can climb right to the top of the mountain!! Which takes roughly 3 hours.

    Simon is a dirt bike rider and enjoys going out for rides, I (Lynette) love shopping (What female doesn't!) getting out catching up with friends and family and just getting out of the house in general.

    We would really love to get someone that would blend in great with us, we like to have a laugh and some occasional beers at home! We love meeting new people that are not from new Zealand, learning about how you live and your country, We will support you in making the most of your time in New Zealand and experience the new Zealand culture, by embracing you as part of the family.

    We have 260 cows, 36 ASHB.
