  • Beschreibung


    We are a young, active couple who have recently purchased a 40 acre section in the heart of the beautiful Waitaki. We live just on the outskirts of Kurow, a 15min walk from the main street, towards the mountains. The closest big town is approx 40mins away, Oamaru. We are about an hour and a half from Aoraki (Mt Cook) and about 2 hours from Queenstown. We travel to Oamaru every Wednesday evening for a night class, if you are lacking transport.
    We both work full time, Scotty has a small workshop, and Lacey works on the vineyards and studies part time. Our property is mostly paddock with sheep, a gentle willowy creek and some small gardens.
    In the winter the weekends are spent Snowboarding/skiing either at local ski fields or our very own club field which we live on the road to. The summers are spent Lakeside at one of 3 lakes, Waitaki, Aviemore and Benmore. When the boat is available, the boys are wakeskating. There is a river that runs the lakes which is also great for swimming and fishing.
    We are vegetarian, but also major foodies. We go out to eat often, when our commitments permit. We have a very sweet, cuddly dog and an even cuddlier cat.

    We do lots of activities when we aren't busy with work and home projects. We often go up the mountain, swimming, hiking. We are currently learning Te Reo Maori, which we would love to share. We have a great property with stunning views. I can teach you to cook basic vegetarian meals. Gardening will be a learning experience for all of us (:

    We really need your help with turning our plot of land into an eco- paradise. We're very flexible with jobs, mostly gardening and property maintenance so you have to be prepared to get a bit dirty. We have a lot of invasive species we need to get under control, without sprays. We would like to expand our gardens in the future. Fencing, and building skills are very valuable but not necessary. General housework and cooking can also be an option. We would require 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. You can choose which days best suit you when you arrive.
