We are family of 7 living in the beautiful Tasman district, looking for help around our busy household! We have previously hosted three young women at different times, from Switzerland, France, and the USA. A bit about us: Shane is a self-employed solo musician and online teacher, Elisabeth is a stay-at-home mom originally from the US and a former secondary teacher, and we have five kids, ages 0 to 11 years. We homeschool one and the rest attend local school and preschool. We mostly need help around the house and with kids, but if you have web development/design, marketing, photography or videography skills, those are helpful to Shane as well! We have a spare bedroom and lots of home cooked food. Close to shops and restaurants and also plenty of outdoor destinations. No public transportation near us, but there is a local driving service :)

We are both teachers with experience teaching English to speakers of other languages. Shane is also an excellent guitar teacher and happy to offer lessons. We are a bicultural family, as Shane is a Kiwi and Elisabeth is an American. We have both traveled quite a bit and love learning about other cultures, languages, and experiences. We live in a beautiful semi-rural town but close to shops, cafes, and restaurants, as well as walking distance to the beach!

Oops, put this info in our description, but basically looking for help with kids and household chores (laundry, decluttering, cleaning, gardening, etc) as we have five young kids including a baby and we are self employed! If you have photography or videography skills those would also help Shane as he's building his YouTube channel. We have a tiny veggie garden we'd love to expand with some help, and random little diy home projects we'd love to see done.

Private room, shared bathroom, laundry facilities, meals and/or use of family kitchen, unlimited wifi.
There are lots of options for cash jobs around town if you like gardening or cleaning, and often part time cafe or retail jobs as well. Transport can be tricky as we have one car with no extra seats and there's no bus or train service to our town. However, there is a locally run taxi service that's fairly reasonable, and public transportation in the nearby cities. We are in the stunning Tasman region with some of the most popular outdoor destinations practically on our doorstep, not to mention wineries, galleries, and much more.

Shane has been teaching guitar via webcam for ten years, and is developing his own courses to sell online. He also has a YouTube channel he's working on building, and is constantly building his songlist to record and publish. We are definitely a digital family.
We have a large level paved driveway with access to water and power. We only have a single bed inside, but can host a campervan or caravan in the driveway.
