You will stay in my house which is in Owaka . I can offer separated bedrooms (There are 2 bedrooms available) There is also a big kitchen and living room.
I am living with one dog and two horses.
. If you don't have the possibility to explore the country around here on your own, we can go on a trip together and I will show you the best spots around here.
What else ...
Best spots: Kaka Point, Nuggets Point, Jacks Bay, Cathedral Caves, Curio Bay,... (If you don't have a car/ the possibility to explore the country on your own I can show you the spots)
In your time off you can explore the listed spots, helping in the farm because there is always a lot of interesting work to do, in the living room is a huge DVD collection which we can watch and laugh about, or chatting about different cultures and traditions. Also on a clear night and if the Aroura is going to shine I always like to go and watch it.
Just one thing I ask . If you are more interested playing games on your phone than helping and if you are playing games at times . Pease don't ask to come ,
