  • Description


    We are 2 lovely hosts living in Gladstone in the Wairarapa. We have a big property and in middle of it is our amazing contemporary house surrounded by New Zealand natives and fruit and veggie gardens. We have 2 dogs and a cat, as well as many cows. We are very flexible with everything, so we can talk about your working hours, pick-ups and all other things. We are very interested in arts, so don't hesitate to ask if you want to see the best of it in the whole Wairarapa. On our drives to the near cities (Masterton, Carterton, Martinborough, Greytown, etc) we can take you with us.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Living in the nature between hills with an absolute stunning view (especially the night skies). We are very interested in architecture, gardening, contemporary New Zealand art, festivals, art history and meeting people so we can talk to you about a lot of things. You'll probably learn something about farming. We often look after grandchildren aged 3, 6 & 8. They add another very happy cultural exchange as they a real Kiwi kids.

  • Help


    Your main work is gardening, some household duties, sometimes cooking and being around the dogs and cat. All easy jobs

  • Accommodation


    You've got your own large bedroom with a queen size bed, a cooling A/C and a bathroom of your own including hot water shower. You are going to live upstairs, so you have your own space, separated from us.

    What else ...

    Unfortunately no public transport but we can pick you up and drop you off when you want. There are plenty of beautiful towns as well as a lot of vineyards around us. In this area you find a bird reserve with white kiwis and the area has excellent tramping opportunities.
