  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 4 (two girls aged 6 and 9), recently returned to NZ after 16 years in the UK - now settling back into Kiwi life on a recently acquired 4ha lifestyle block in West Melton. We spent 2018/2019 travelling Europe and Africa in an old Land Rover, and to be honest are missing regular interactions with likeminded global roamers such as ourselves! We are very much in settle in/setup mode at present, intending to be as self sufficient as possible, while at the same time settling back into NZ life. We have a self contained studio flat on the property, however we would expect Workawayers to integrate into family life as much as possible. Obviously being good with kids and animals is a must!

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    As a family we are extremely well travelled (47 countries in 2018/2019) and love meeting people from new (and old) countries. We would expect travellers to integrate into our family life, and maybe pass on a few good recipes!

    Aide

    We are slowly knocking the property into shape, so there is always work helping set up gardens, weeding, general garden maintenance, animal feeding, household domestic tasks, cooking the odd meal as well as some childminding of two young girls... and there is generally a project of some description on the go.

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    Self contained flat or inside the main house (guestroom). When the family is around, we will all eat together (we would love the opportunity to try new meals, but in general we will cook for you - unless you are especially talented in the kitchen of course!). We are an omnivorous family, so vegan/vegetarian travellers won't really work for us - but we are open to the occasional plant based meal. We bake our own bread so gluten intolerance is also a bit tricky for us to cater for. The entire property is served with wifi, inside and out, however mobile reception is not good unless in or near the main house (we have a signal booster, but it has limited range).

  • Autres infos...

    Autres infos...

    West Melton is a rural town, located around 35 minutes from Central Christchurch by car, and there is a basic bus service running Monday to Friday. The airport is around a 20 minute drive. We are located about an hours drive from the Canterbury skifields, and there is plenty of hiking (and fishing) in Canterbury. We are non-smoking, and would expect our Workawayers to be so as well. We enjoy good food, and probably a little too much beer and wine. A word of warning - like many rural properties in NZ, we have a problem with rabbits... this we control by hunting (and eating) them. If this bothers you, we may not be appropriate hosts!
