Are you looking for the perfect host family to become an au pair? We found it for you! This lovely family of four is waiting for you in their brand new house in Auckland, as well as their friendly cat. They have a son (6 years old) and a daughter (4 years old).

Their son is a very active boy, who loves to run around and have fun doing boy things.  He loves hot wheels cars, trucks, diggers, water and getting wet or dirty. His sister is a very busy girl who loves following her brother around everywhere.  She has a lovely big smile and a very strong will.  She loves everything girly, such as princesses or mermaids. Together, the siblings like to swim, to ride their bikes or scooters and to jump on their trampoline, so be sure to be prepared to have a lot of fun with them!

The family loves to have BBQs with their friends and family, to go to the nearby beach or to explore the area, as they moved in their new house only over a year and a half ago.

They will be happy to accommodate you in an en-suite room with a separate bathroom, a lounge area with TV and DVD player and a small kitchenette that has a microwave, kettle and toaster available for your use.

They would love to find someone with a good sense of humour who is kind, loving and calm, and who takes initiative. The family would also like some help with evening meal preparations and some light child-related housework. They will also expect you to prepare their children for school and kindergarten and undertake pick-ups and drop-offs. Ideally you’ll have some nanny, babysitting, teaching, coaching experience or similar.

The family have had four au pairs before and really enjoyed the experience and how well they fitted in with the family. They look forward to meeting you and can't wait to get to know you!
