Alpacas and mini highland cows on a 15 acre plot in the Bay of Islands need your help! We have 5 alpacas, three cows, ducks, roosters, peahens and some mad guinea fowl and our lovely dog, Honey. We're originally from Kenya, used to run a backpackers there, so we love meeting new people and talking about their travels.
Help in the house
It's a fun way to get to know alpacas and highland cows - you can interact as much or as little as you want. Our ducks are an endless source of amusement and the guinea fowl are simply delightfully mad.
We're looking for a couple who can help out around the property from feeding the alpacas to helping out around the house or using the ride on mower, for a couple of hours a day. We're pretty easy going about hours so you would have plenty of time to do your own thing but we really are looking for a couple to come and stay for a while, ideally a month or more!
Accommodation is a cabin in the garden, separate from the main house, with a small kitchen/dining area and bathroom. You'd have your own space and privacy, complete with a small bbq to use. For a couple of hours work we wouldnt provide food, you would be totally independent.
In the 'Winterless North' ideally situated in between Kerikeri and Waipapa with the famous Rainbow Falls just a stroll away. There's no public transport here so a car would be handy but not vital if you dont mind a walk. Pahia is about 20 mins away....a great place to explore the Bay of Islands - we have a bike you can borrow.
