    Hi! We are a friendly family of 4 living the dream on our lifestyle block in the Western Bay of plenty - Tauranga

    My husband is a builder, I am a massage therapist. We have two boys 5 & 11
    Our family dog Duke is super cute n friendly!
    We have a new addition to the house, his name is Chester! He is a 6 week old Kunekune pig.. he’s adorable and will love to hang out with you for a nice belly rub.

    I work from home in my clinic and the children attend school.

    We love the outdoors, surfing, bush walks, bike ride, swimming, and travel when we can.
    Mark makes homemade beer as a hobby and loves to make furniture.
    I love the beach, yoga and can teach you some yoga whilst you stay.

    We have a large house on 3 levels. It was an architectural design in the 90s! So pretty funky but in need of repairs.
    We have 5 acres of land. This takes a lot of our time, gardening, pruning, hedges, planting !
    The house is amazing in summer! Lots of sun, windows facing to the sea.. it’s also a real doer upper! It’s quite unusual with high ceilings, different angles n levels. We would like help!
    By inviting willing and capable people to come in and help.

    The property, is very pretty with mature spray free fruit & native trees, lots of bird life, and boasts amazing views of the ocean. At night you see the twinkling lights of Omokoroa- Mount Maunganui. The sky is so clear at night.

    The Bay of Plenty is a great central part of the North island. Only 2 hours between the West and East coast. 1 hour to the beautiful Coromandel peninsula. 1 hour to thermal region Rotorua, 2 hours to Lake Taupo, 3.5 hours to the mountains for skiing

    *** We are also located 30 minutes from two amazing white sandy beaches ***
    Waihi & Mount Maunganui
    Minutes to bush walks
    25 mins to the CBD

    ** Supermarket, doctor, dentist, Physio, Chiro, pharmacy only 10 minutes away in Omokoroa.

    We have two boys, a dog, 2 young alpacas, 2 baby Kunekune pigs and 6 chickens
    You will be asked to help with these guys!
