  • Description


    We are a small family living on 10 acres of lush bush, well-established gardens, and rolling fields at Bethells Beach, Waitakere, Auckland. There are other houses on the land also. I live with my son (Jakob age 9) in a little cottage. I work from a small studio at home and love living in our paradise only 30 mins from town. I'm Kiwi born to an Italian mother. I speak basic German (my son is half German) however I don't speak Italian, I love the Italian culture.

    The land is owned by a group of friends, of which only two live on it. I love the Bethells community and have good connections with people and the resources at Bethells.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We are an artistic family with great connections to the land and community. I am a media artist so going to an exhibition or music gig is something I like to do. We love making big Italian meals and eating alfesco style on our sunny deck, with friends and family. Jakob is a fun loving child with a big heart and loves his trampoline, the fig tree, his best mate Tilly, drawing and singing.

  • Aide


    Well maintained, we need help with lawn moving, weed eating, gardening, driving, and small domestic tasks like repair work, cleaning and painting. We will provide a private bedroom sleepout accommodation, and food for two meals a day, no meat. Feel free to help yourself from the garden too. We are not vegetarian and are happy if you would like to buy your own meat. We try to limit our plastic usage, and we grow and buy fresh produce. NB: we don't need babysitting help, and can only accommodate one person if we have other work awayers here :)
