    We're currently looking for last-minute workawayer(s) to help with A LOT of gardening, some painting, maybe a tiny bit of babysitting, and possibly even a small building project if you have the skills!

    (Note that we are flexible about workawayer(s) also doing a little part-time paid work in the time you are not helping us, because there is a lot of work on Waiheke at the moment and not many workers!)

    About us: We are a writer and architect with a girl of 10 and boy of 5 1/2, who live in a wonderful old house overlooking the sea on Waiheke Island, just 35 minutes by ferry from downtown Auckland. We have a boisterous dog, a cuddly cat and some free range chickens, + lots of native wildlife inhabiting our garden.
    We are extremely well-travelled (50 countries) and are looking forward to travelling again in the future! We welcome people of all cultures and outlooks, and workawayers from any country, culture or religion are welcome to enquire about staying with us.
    7 years ago we moved here from Auckland city to enjoy a more fulfilling way of life, be as sustainable as possible, and grow our own vegetables and fruit (we don't grow as much as we'd like so your help is appreciated with that!).
    We are currently renovating our house and garden so there is usually a project of some kind underway.

    In general we are looking for either 1 or 2 workawayers to help with childcare, cleaning/housework, gardening, painting and possibly building work depending on your skills. People with childcare experience or building/carpentry/plumbing/ roofing and gardening/landscape experience (especially those who can use machinery such as mowers and weed trimmers) are extra welcome. However, attitude is more important overall than experience, so if you are happy to try all sorts of things, you should fit in well with us.

    Workawayers usually stay between 1-8 weeks with us, depending on their skills and the time of year. (Shorter stays in summer, longer in winter. In winter we prefer at least a 2 week stay.)

    Waiheke is a beautiful island with lots of wineries, green spaces, bushwalks and wonderful beaches. Dolphins and orca (killer whales) are sometimes seen around the island (in winter especially) and we have lots of native birds.

    Our house is a historic old house with a close-up beautiful view over the water at Anzac Bay. We are close to a main bus route, so you can easily explore the island or get to the ferry to go into the city. You won't need a car to explore most of the island. We also have kayaks you can take out on days when the weather is good!
    Your room will be a separate garden studio (with comfy queen size bed) - so you won't be woken by children in the mornings on your days off!

    All meals are included in your stay.
    Dinner is eaten together, while breakfast and lunch is on a 'help yourself to items provided' basis.

    No smokers please. Vegetarians are welcome, as we eat mostly vegetarian food for ethical and environmental reasons, with the very occasional bit of fish or other meat (around once every two weeks).

    For single workawayers, a lot of the help will be gardening and cleaning help, with some childcare, cooking, animal care, and general help around the house. If you are a couple, additional chores will include more gardening, painting, and possibly building, depending on your skills.

    Workawayers staying with us will get lots of English language experience - especially from our chatty kids, and I have also worked as an English language tutor so can offer you help too. You can also learn about organic gardening, sustainability and cooking.
