    After our own Overseas drama we are open to assisting those who may find themselves stranded.

    The Glen is 14km North from Nelson City, it is at the start of the boulder bank where we swim, snorkel, kayak, paddle board and sometimes surf. The sea is 2 minutes away. Nelson is accessed by car or bike there are no buses.the community comprises of about 120 houses. We are a mature couple who live in the family home although the kids have all flown the nest. We have a cat and dog. We are vegetarians. We love international visitors and encourage and support them if they wish to improve their English.Our home is up a no exit Street where the cable bay walkway starts. I work but Steve is always pottering around the house and garden always which needs lots of maintenance and there are always have many projects which he needs Help with.
    Currently considering re-tiling the bathroom, redecorating, replacing the driveway as well gardening and household tasks.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We love to assist with learning English. We live rurally and being here is a good time to enjoy the harmony of quiet space. With Nelson a short drive away there are lots of opportunities to experience the many festivals.

    So close to the beach swimming, kayaking, snorkeling and paddle boards are available. Occasionally when the swell is up there maybe an opportunity to surf. We have a couple of mountain bikes and there are lots of walks close by. Nelson is 14km away which has a host of other opportunities.
    We ourselves have worked overseas in someone else’s home so have experienced both sides. We have hosted many people over the years and enjoy the diversity of others. Although We prefer to agree to a specific timescale up front of the stay, at present we are aware of the issues facing those marooned here in NZ.
