  • Description


    We live on a small rural property on the Canterbury plains about half way between Christchurch and the mountains. We have a large house and gardens and the usual range of animals. We would love to host someone who is happy to help with the garden and general maintenance. I am semi-retired and work from home while my wife Robin commutes to Christchurch most days. It is a very relaxing and informal lifestyle in a beautiful setting and we have enjoyed our experience with other hosting programs in the past.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Robin is originally from Canada and we have both traveled extensively and enjoy the interaction with visitors from overseas. We enjoy having others in our large house and learning about the other countries and cultures. I have an excellent knowledge of NZ agriculture and food industries and my wife is currently working in the Maori culture and business environment.
