A fun stay with us on a mini farm near Hamilton city, New Zealand



 Séjour min. souhaité : Pas de minimum



  • Description


    We are an English / Kiwi family of five: my husband and I and our 3 older children 18, 16 and 12. We have a dog, 2 goats and one sheep and a few chickens! Our oldest is now away at university most of the time. We work full-time in the healthcare industry and technology industry. We need help to manage the garden, pets, light housework and perhaps driving the kids to sports practice! But most of all we enjoy the cultural interaction with people from overseas! Our children have greatly benefitted from learning from others especially where languages and culture is different from their own! If you are keen to cook dinner sometimes that would be well received and a great time to catch up at the end of the day. We live by a cycle path that takes you north up the river (30km) via Hamilton city (15km) or south to Cambridge (10km). We also live close to Hobbiton and other attractions in the Hamilton / Waikato Region. We have a swimming pool (summer), pool table and table tennis, sky TV etc.
