Small, busy, friendly family home in central Nelson, surrounded by gardens and then overgrown bush. We have four school aged children and some experience with kids is preferred. We are not looking for childcare, but want someone who is happy to be around children from time to time. The kids are well behaved and like to meet people from different places, as do we.
We are a friendly we’ll travelled family who can offer a true kiwi family exchange. There may be opportunities to join in with various family activities. We enjoy music, discussing world events, science, arts, history and so on.
We like to exchange recipes and have dinner around the table.
3 hours of garden help per day, including weeding. General section clean ups and some vegetable garden help.
English; and a very little of a few other languages
A classic caravan with a comfortable new mattress at the back of our property. The caravan has power, with a toaster and jug. Shared bathroom in the house, a short walk away. Pleasant, picturesque setting in a quiet peaceful location, near to the Maitai river and home of many native birds including cheeky wekas. You can easily walk into town from our house.
We provide at least one meal a day; we like to have dinner together around the table and can cater to vegetarians.
Nelson has a lot to offer; mountain biking, hiking, Abel Tasman park, boating, a vibrant arts scene, lovely scenery, a good place to hang out and then travel onto other places in NZ.
Limited internet access

We are smokers
Maximum 3-4 hours a day, each day of the stay. We are happy for people to work a double hour one day and then take the next day off.
