    Description

    My Husband needs the help of a strong person. And I need some one to help me indoors and out.
    We live in the beautiful whitestone district of North Otago. We are a mature couple with a farmlet. We have a large vegetable garden that needs constant weeding, also chickens,
    lambs, calves and 2 dogs and a cat.
    Our property in approx 4 ks from the town centre of Oamaru on SH1 (the main road South.).
    The property is in 6 paddocks, with large trees all around.
    Our house is a 104 year old Villa
    As well as being the Whitestone capital of NZ, Oamaru is also the Steampunk capital.There is the penguins to view in the evening. Day trips will take you to the ski fields, moeraki boulders, Viewing seals at Shag point, or rock climbing at Elephant Rocks.
    Oamaru is a 2 hr bus trip north, of Dunedin, or a 4 hr bus trip south, from Christchurch. We will meet bus travelers in Oamaru.
