  • Description

    Description

    We live on a large section on the edge of Tauranga. We have lots of fruit trees, a large vegie garden, a few chicken, a worm farm, a crazy demanding cat & a large Newfoundland dog. There is always lots to do to keep the place in order (although generally a week at a time is all we can accomodate) & since our 4 children have left home we love having workaways to help & to keep us company! Autumn is a busy time preserving all our produce - we make a lot of our food & what we do buy is generally wholesome & natural.
    We have a tennis court, small gym & swimming pool which you are welcome to use.
    We have travelled extensively.
    We are non smokers & expect you to refrain from smoking in the house please.

    Help will depend on the time of the year & will vary between garden work - weeding, trimming of hedges, turning the compost, mowing lawn etc or house work - dusting, cleaning floors & windows. We'd always be happy for you to cook a meal - especially something typical from your country!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Tauranga is a beautiful city on the coast - we are a 15 min drive from an amazing surf beach. Tauranga is also very well placed in the central north island - with Rotorua, Hobbiton, The Coromandel & Auckland all close by. I'm happy to collect you from a bus - if that's necessary.
    Couples/two friends only please
