We are a family of mum, three kids and a dog. We love having visitors and learning about your culture. We won't ask much of you. The jobs that need doing are not difficult - we are just time poor and need hand.
We are right in the Whakatane township, next to the Whakatane River. The river walkway is the beginning of lots of amazing walks around the town. Our home is warm and comfortable. We have unlimited ultrafast broadband which everyone can use.
There are lots of things to do locally, including visiting White Island, an active volocano off our coast.
Help in the house
Time with our family is a fun time. We are an active family, we eat well and laugh a lot. My children are very curious about other cultures and languages. We can help improve your English, if that is something you are looking for. We are happy to share our cultural values and traditions. We include our helpers in what we do, so if we go somewhere, you are welcome to join us.
General helping and the place. Jobs that need to be done that I can't manage. The windows need washing, the ceilings need cleaning and the vegetable garden needs to be cleared for winter planting.
Your private bedroom has a single bed, and is in the home. It is warm and comfortable. There is a shared bathroom close by.
All food is included. You will make your own breakfast and lunch, as we all do. I cook our evening meal, which we eat together as a family, at our dinning table. Our home environment would not really suit a vegan.
