    Description

    Hello. We have a wonderful 10 acre lifestyle block close to the villages of Waimauku and Kumeu (wine country) in the north west part of Auckland, just 35 mins drive to the city outside of the rush hour and 20 mins drive to the beautiful Muriwai (surf/swim) beach, there are also a few walking/hiking opportunities nearby.
    I have a cat and we keep a small flock of sheep and some chickens, I'll be adding to the livestock at some stage.
    I also have a young daughter who stays with me on alternate weeks so you need to be very comfortable around children and happy to interact as and when. Her grandfather lives on the property in a separate house and is usually around to answer questions if I’m not.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I have been hosting travellers on another platform for over a year now and have very much enjoyed learning from each other and hearing about the different and varied lifestyles of our helpers and their travels. I also enjoy being able to share our daily lives and having people join in with us on our adventures...
    It's a rural location, peaceful, with views over the property. A quiet escape from the busy city life...

    There is a “Young” orchard and large vege garden constantly in need of upkeep.
    Ideally I am looking for someone to help out with a variety of jobs around the garden (weeding; mowing; mulching; vege growing, orchard etc.) the property (fencing; wood stacking; tidying up; general maintenance etc.) and with the animals.
    You do need to be trustworthy, responsible and, when necessary, able to work safely on your own. *️️*️️Non-smokers only please.*️️*️️

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Accommodation is provided in the house with your own bedroom, shared bathroom and living areas.
    I have "full" SKY TV and a DVD player, Wi-Fi access (not unlimited so subject to acceptable use).
    I always appreciate offers of help with planning menus, shopping and sharing the cooking; there will be occasions when you`ll need to prepare/cook food for yourself.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is no local bus or train service, the nearest shops are approx. 3km away.
    There are occasions when I can accept 2 people, feel free to enquire about availability.
    I can pick up locally if you don`t have your own transport and we can discuss getting out and about during a stay if you`re happy to fit in with whatever plans we can make to help.
    My workplace is located southeast of the city so it would be possible for you to be dropped of and picked up correspondingly, to spend time sightseeing or on other activities.
    My interests outside my job and the property include tramping/hiking, camping and sailing. I am more than happy to share these pursuits with you if they appeal and time allows during your stay.
