Another great family

April 2021 - Thank you once again for helping to match us to our new guests. It's been quite trying to find a suitable family during the pandemic with the borders closed. Just as we started to prepare our home for a local and unfurnished rental, a match was found with a suitable family from abroad. They were the few who were allowed through the closed borders under the critical workers category with an extensive healthcare background and with nothing more than a few suitcases. They found our listing on while at the managed isolation hotel in NZ, and signed up right away to contact us. It was a busy last two weeks, as we didn’t expect this and we had to wrap up pretty quickly! We feel very blessed and we are ecstatic that we could host another great family, thanks to you and your team.
