We are a friendly couple with 2 young children.
We have a very large 6 bedroom, 4 bathroom home. We are a 5 minute drive from Albany village and there are bustops close by our home also. Schools such as Kristin, Albany Junior and Senior High, Pinehurst, Massey University are not far and have buses going there.
We like to eat a balanced diet, we eat western/kiwi style food, having a good cooked dinner every week night but we all help ourselves to make our own breakfast and lunch. In the weekends we are more relaxed and will sometimes eat at home or sometimes eat out.
My husband works long hours & is away from home a lot, for this reason I accept only female students. We enjoy spending time with our families, attending church on Sunday mornings and going to the beach a lot in the summer - homestays are more than welcome to join us with anything we do but we are never offended if you prefer to be more independent :)
