Our home

Our family home is sunny and comfortable with all the usual mod cons and a large and kid friendly garden with trampoline and playhut. The house has 2 living areas and a large sleepout/ xtra bedroom. We also have a cat/secretary called Miss Moneypenny who will work for food! (we can farm her out if cat sitting isn't your thing.)
Our car can be made available, but we are on a good bus route into the city and local shops.

Who we are

  1. I am a social science academic working at Canterbury University. Partner Jim runs a web content consultant business from home. Our two children Ishbel (15) and Fionn(13) are both in the local high school and have the usual busy lives - soccer, karate, etc. etc. we do alot of outside stuff so mountain bikes could be made available as there are lots of tracks around.
    We're off on Sabbatical to Scotland for a school term and are looking for an exchange ( you'd experience the NZ late summer/ autumn with warm days.)
