  • Description


    Kia ora!

    Our names are Cat and Aaron and we live on the lovely Awhitu Peninsula, which is a small community in the county side about one and a half hours south west of Auckland. We have two lovely young kids (3 and 5 years), a cat, two cows and 2 beehives.

    We are busy with our 3 acre property, renovating our house and landscaping the grounds with an environmentally friendly and creative focus.

    We are looking for someone who is practical, hard working and motivated to come and help us. You will need to be happy to be outside getting your hands dirty and be just as happy to clean and tidy inside our home and help babysitting.

    Your accommodation is in a separate building to our house with its own toilet and basin. The bathroom is in the house. We eat healthy wholesome food with a lot of vegetables from our own garden.

    There are lots of really lovely beaches in our area and you have the choice of the wild black sand west coast and the calm white sanded beaches of the harbour. All really lovely places for swimming and exploring.

    If you do not have a car, you can catch the train from Auckland to Pukekohe and we will arrange a time to pick you up.

    We have just recently joined Workaway but we have being hosting people through another platform for the last 4 years, which we have really enjoyed.

    Please feel free to contact us to enquire further.
