  • Beschreibung


    We are in historic Waimate North with beautiful views of rolling hills and farmland about 15 minutes from Kerikeri. Ideally, you'll want your own transport.(no buses out here! :-)

    We need help with general property maintenance. This will include weeding, hedge trimming, and autumn cut-back. I also need some help inside at the moment with cleaning as I've hurt my hand from piano playing.

    We ask for 4 hours help for 5 days a week and weekends off. In return we will provide free accommodation, wifi internet and TV. You would be staying in the cabin which is separate from the house with heating and bathroom. It has a small fridge, simple cooking facilities like a microwave, bench top oven air-fryer and element. You will need to take care of your own breakfast and lunch, and are welcome to join us for dinner when it suits. We will provide cereal, freshly laid eggs, tea/coffee and milk in the unit.

    Also, I will be happy to show you around Kerikeri and the surrounding areas.

    My husband works on the dairy farm down the road and I am studying a Grad Diploma in Theology and learning Biblical Hebrew. It'd be wonderful if you could speak Hebrew! I'm beginning to learn Koine Greek as well this year. I can speak a little bit of French but I'm a bit out of practise!

    We keep chickens, 6 beehives, a dog and a cat. There is also a big vegetable garden, avocado trees and a whole bunch of assorted fruit trees that I keep planting!

    We look forward to meeting you! :-)

    Nicola and Ralph

  • Arbeit


    At the moment we need to prune hedges and manuka that have got a bit out of control from all the rain! Also I need help getting the cottage gardens back in shape which will include pulling out things that aren't supposed to be there (weeds). You can learn how to drive the ride-on mower, the electric hedge trimmers and use the weed-eater if you haven't used these before.
    Plus any other general outside Autumn maintenance like hedge trimming, pruning and cutting back for Autumn, weeding under fruit trees, pruning etc.
    Some housework inside.

    I began learning French many years ago and would love to learn more. Also I have been studying Ancient Hebrew as part of my theology degree so am always interested in other cultures and languages.
