We are looking for a student(s)/worker who are focused on their study and are looking for a comfortable and friendly place to live. Like any family member we expect a homestay to clean up after themselves and help out around the house. This may involving emptying the dishwasher, cooking in the evening.
We are a kiwi couple in our 40’s with a 5 year old son. My husband is a Project Manager and I’m a Nurse and Teacher. We enjoy the outdoors, gardening and enjoying all that Auckland has to offer. We spend most of our weekends out of Auckland or going to parks and beaches, visiting markets and other local events. We own land up north in Waipu, perfect for camping over the summer.
So far we have hosted : a German woman and her 15 year old daughter, a student from Wellington, 4 Korean students, 2 Japanese student, an Italian worker, 5 Chinese student, and 13 different workaways (some single females and some couples)
We eat mainly organics free range fruit, vegetables and meat. We are happy for students to cook meals if they want/enjoy cooking.
We have 5 bedrooms in our house and 2 bathrooms. We also have 1 friendly dog who is mostly outside. Our house is full of laughter and kindness towards each other.
