House sitting in
The North Shore is located across the Harbour Bridge from Auckland City. Its eastern beaches are embellished with multi-million dollar houses built to enjoy unobstructed sea views. Beaches, windsurfing, jet skiing, boating and bush walking are popular pass times for families living in this area. Massey University and the AUT North Shore Campus attract students from all over the world, who often become homestays with kiwi families. Make time for a paddle in Lake Pupuke, Auckland’s oldest volcanic crater, and while you ponder on the bygone eruption you can feed the resident black swans. For those who need some retail therapy, you will find Glenfield and Takapuna Westfield Shopping Malls, a short drive from Lake Pupuke. If you want a break from shopping, only a short walk or drive away are a choice of North Shore beaches where you can enjoy an ice cream or a coffee.
