  • Description


    Hi I have a renovated bungalow and small garden on Birkenhead Point. It is a few minutes walk to the Ferry; quick cruise into downtown Auckland city. Up the hill, you will find great cafes and bush walks. At the end of the street are steps down to Little Shoal Bay - perfect for swimming at high tide. So close to the city, yet so peaceful. I work in mixed media/multi media/live shows/VFX and work from my office at home. Sometimes I am extraordinarily busy and other times I am waiting for projects to start. I have a house/garden to maintain with a few projects that I am working on.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am an mixed media/multi media designer/producer/director and I work from home. I am involved in art and image projects large and small. I am endlessly curious about image and manipulation. I would enjoy discussing this with those that have an interest. Otherwise I am curious about people and their experiences.

  • Help


    I have a number of small projects on around the house but I need help as I walk using crutches. I need to clear the basement out. I also have a full attic that needs clearing. I want to dig some plants out and I have some small home repairs: painting a wall and general spring cleaning.

  • Accommodation


    A very nice double room with a queen bed. French doors onto a private courtyard. Lovely bathroom with a deep bath and shower that you might share with one other. I will provide food and will cook dinner and lunches - if I am around. Otherwise, I will leave food for you to cook yourselves.

    What else ...

    There are many ways to enjoy Auckland: beaches, hiking, sight seeing. I will be able to recommend places to go and how to get there depending on your interests. I am minutes from the Ferry which takes right into downtown Auckland or on to Waiheke Island. There are hikes close by or a bus trip away. You can swim at the bottom of the street or travel to other beaches.
