  • Beschreibung


    We are Jack and Hadassah Jones. We are an international couple. Jack is English, spent many years in Germany so is fluent in German and married Hadassah who is a Kiwi. Hadassah grew up in Papua New Guinea, has an American accent but is a New Zealander. We both have travelled a lot and enjoy people from other cultures.
    We would love help with the garden and a few small building type jobs on our property.

    Jack is 53 years old and works for a kiwi fruit business as the workshop manager.
    Hadassah is 48 years old and has her own small gardening business, tending other peoples gardens while still trying to do her own.
    We enjoy people from all walks of life, religion and cultures and hold to the importance of respect.
    We have a religious family background which has definitely impacted on our lives but we are not overly religious ourselves. We do give thanks for our meals.
    We are non-smokers and mostly non-drinkers. You are welcome to provide your own alcohol but prefer non-smokers
    The one thing we might seem a bit quirky about is that we like to have our shower squeegeed down and wiped after each shower. Just to stop water stains.
    We really enjoyed having workawayers and enjoy conversations, showing people around when we can and providing a nice place to stay.

    If you live in a big city and haven't had the chance to experience having your own garden, mowing a lawn, eating vegetables that you have grown, this will be a good experience for you. If you enjoy this it might inspire you to do something in your own back yard.
    If you are experienced with gardening you might enjoy seeing how things grow in a different country and climate from your own.

    We are looking for help with a couple of things.
    We would like to re-stain the outside of our little cabin. It would require a bit of ladder work. So if you have some experience painting that would be helpful though not critical.

    We are also wanting to create a small duck pond for our ducks. We have the hole dug out but there will still be more digging involved. If you have ever created a pond or have experience in landscaping etc that would be awesome. Once again not critical.

    There is always loads of weeding, pruning and garden work to do.

  • Unterkunft


    Our spare bedroom fits one person comfortably. It can fit two but will be a bit tighter. It is a comfortable bedroom, bright and cheerful.
    Our house is a fairly new build, it isn't large but very comfortable.
    Food will be provided, non-fussy eaters are always welcome, but we will do our best to provide for peoples food restrictions and preferences within reason.
    Because of where we live having your own transport would be very helpful. We are in a small town that only runs basic bus services, so if you want to really get out exploring having a car to do so would really help. We can tell you of heaps of places to visit.
    I am happy to drop you off at the bus station if that helps. I am sure you can catch a bus to Waitamo caves or Hobbiton if you want to.

    We live in a small area called Kihikihi a suburb of Te Awamuta. We are very centrally placed for tourist activities. We are about 40 minute drive from Waitomo Caves. Another 40 minutes in a different direction to Hobbiton. We are about 1 hours drive from Kawhia, Raglan, Rotorua, & Mt Maunganui.
    We have a good knowledge of places to go, local hikes, rock climbing, swimming, caving activities for the area. We might even take you out ourselves if the timing works. We do love to share our local awesome spots.
    I am sure we could fill-up your time off with places to visit.
