Are you available for three months to help out an awesome family of kiwi fruit farmers located in Bay Of Plenty? April is the start of harvest and things get super busy, plus running their own beauty therapy business from home part time means big days and long hours. They have a bubbly, fun and babbling 18 month old boy, who they want to be cared for in his usual routine, as much as possible, over this busy time. As hands on parents they will support you in whatever way you may need to ensure a good bond between the two of you and as a family.

There are also two older brothers, who both adore the youngest and also help out where they can.  Host mum is originally from the UK, and host dad has only a very small family so they need your extra pair of hands! They live in a very friendly neighbourhood and you can also use the car and are welcome to use it personally from time to time when it is not being used. They have a very soppy Labrador, Roxy, who is everyone's best friend.  With a lovely warm and sunny home, it’s big enough for everyone to have a little personal space. Your room has a tv, connected to Apple TV, large wardrobe and chest of drawers. Their home is yours and they hope you will feel comfortable to make yourself at home with them. 

Located in rural Tauranga, they live about 10 minutes from the city centre and about 15 minutes from the beach. There are shops nearby and bus stops just a few minutes’ walk away.  There are plenty of walkways and parks. As a family they enjoy walking, being outdoors, having fun, relaxing in front of a good movie at night and going out for coffee and they hope that you’ll join in!
