  • Description


    We run small family holiday complex.That has self contained cottages and bed and breakfast rooms.
    We are close to Napier and have a bus stop at the gate so getting around is easy.

    We have a large home and offer a comfortable double room or single room depending on who is staying.
    Our large swimming pool and the hot tub is a nice way to relax at the end of the day..
    We are happy to have a couple or single people so please contact us to enquire.

    House hold duties include cleaning and re making of the holiday cottages , cleaning in the B&B house.
    We are needing help with gardening and section clearing ready for some construction work.

    From March 2018 we hope to be underway with building several new houses so we will be looking for helpers that are happy to do basic labouring and clean up work around the site.

    So if you are planning your trip and would like to help out we are keen to hear from you.
    We love to chat in the evenings so you are very welcome to join us and to be part of our home.
    The work will be physical but the food is good.

    For international workaways, you need to have a working holiday visa and a NZ IRD number.

Napier from on high. Looking out to Cape Kidnappers and the home of the Gannet birds. Not a view from our place but what Napier has to offer.
