Hi, We are a family of 2 adults and 2 kids ( 2 and 5 years old). We live in a small town near glaciers, forest, beach and big mountains. We have a big garden and try to live as eco friendly as possible. Our interests are sustainability, waste reduction, healthy eating, permaculture, respectful parenting, arts and music).
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
This place is for you if you would like to stay in the area for at least 2 weeks and do all the stunning walks around here. Also, if you would like to learn how to preserve food ( make sourdough bread, kimchi, sourkreut, kombucha, yoghurt etc), grow food etc...
Fox Glacier is a photographer's paradise. Its truly like being in Middle Earth.
Our little family just started on a homeschool journey with our kids. I also work from home, which gives me little time to get the tasks around the house done.
I need help with cooking meals every night, general cleaning around the house ( vacuuming, bathroom and toilet, toys) and 1- 2 hours playing with the kids every day. If you are musician and liked craft projects like drawing, paintings, making things that would be a plus.
You must love kids and like cooking.
You will be staying in our main house in a double bedroom. The bed is a queen size. Your room gets the morning sun and faces the big mountains. From your bedroom window, you can see Mt Cook ( NZ highest mountain). Our house is warm, we have a brand new fire place with a ventilation system that carries heat to your bedroom.
