  • Description


    Hi, my name is Zelia. I am a 33 year old female who lives with a 6 year old spoodle, Tyke, in Goldfield Heights, Queenstown.

    I am getting ready to put my property on the market for sale and as a result I have a bunch of work to be done, so upon the recommendation of my brother (who has been hosting work aways for years on our family farm down in Southland) I thought I would put it out there to see if anyone(s) would like to come and occupy one of my spare rooms, soak up some stunning 180 degree views of Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables, and help me get my house/section in tip top shape!

    I have a 3 bed/3 bath place so you'd have your own bathroom and the bedrooms are big, with heaps of closet space, so would be great for couples looking to work/travel together! It is a 45 minute walk to downtown Queenstown, and about 10 minutes to the bus stop. The Queenstown Trail is also only about 15 minutes away! If you have a vehicle - easy - plenty of parking!

    The only real downside is that I will have the occasional tradie popping in from time to time to work on a few projects, and will be upgrading the carpet/lino at some point so you'd just want to be a little flexible there!

    Look forward to hearing from you!

    I've lived and worked most of my life in New Zealand (with a few stints in the US) and have spent many years in QT (which I'm sure you'll know is up there as a 'must visit' for anyone traveling in NZ), so can certainly help you out with top tips on how to spend your free time here! And I'll just put it out there - my place has seriously some of the best residential views in QT!

    I have a BUNCH that needs done! I'd really LOVE to find someone who isn't afraid to get their hands dirty and do a DEEP clean of the place (I'm talking all the nooks, cracks and crannies that most people overlook). I also have gardening, rock work, brush clearing, sprucing up the garage, painting, sanding and staining the woodwork, water blasting, staining the deck, general 'handy man' projects... the list goes on! If you have any kind of home maintenance skill then I am probably in need of it haha!

    3 bed/3 bath house so you'd have your own bathroom and plenty of closet space if needed. The place has a beautiful big balcony too for breakfast or evening drinks! I can provide bedding and towels and will happily stock the kitchen if you give me a list (BUT I'm flat tack getting the house ready and working at the same time so can't offer to cook).
