    Description

    Hi, We are the Spratt family and have two children at home ages 15 and 12.
    We live on a farm at Lower Moutere New Zealand which is at the top of the south island about 35 minute drive from Nelson City and 8 minutes from Motueka town. Close to our home are many fabulous beaches, rivers and larger towns and the area we live in would suit people who enjoy rural life, sea, sun, and outdoor activities. Motueka has a population of 7,000 that doubles in the summer months with tourists. It is a very popular holiday destination due to the fabulous summer climate, stunning scenery, walks, beaches and is the gateway to both the Kahurangi and Abel Tasman national parks. Motueka was also voted as New Zealand's top town 2013.

    We moved here from England in 2005 and love everything New Zealand has to offer but also understand what it like to move to another country being away from family and friends. We love the outdoor lifestyle and spend our free time farming, gardening, walking, biking, fishing, etc. We also love family days out to the beach. Our home has five bedrooms with a big living area/kitchen/dining. Additionally to this we have a new self contained wing of the house with a large bedroom/living room, kitchen and bathroom/toilet. This would be your accommodation during your stay with us.
    We have large gardens with 3 large ponds , potting shed, berry house and vegetable gardens. The farm has 26acres with large sheds, highland and beef cows, chickens, 2 dogs and 1cat. The area we live in is ideal for walking, running and cycling as is relatively flat and very scenic.
    As we have to maintain all the above we always have projects going on and sometimes it could be that we need help with them or a bit of everything to keep things interesting.

    We are a very easy-going family and are used to having people living with us for quite long periods as we have occasional overseas visitors and Au Pairs for the last 13 yrs.
    We would expect five hrs of work each day, general helping around meal times etc. and in return we can offer food and accommodation in a home in the best area in New Zealand, flexible hours and an easy-going relaxed family atmosphere.
