    Hi im Mareah,

    We have a beautiful large property on the west coast of the north island. 40min out of Auckland City. 2 Woman and 1 Man in our late 20s-30s. We are looking for General Help maintaining the House and Gardens.
    The work will be anything from shopping, laundry, yardwork, housework, lifting, weeding, picking fruit. We are really chilled out during the week and from time to time we socialise.
    Generally prefer people who are self sufficient and can operate independently.
    Wifi is NOT available - we tether of our phones and is available for very limited use. If you need daily access best to arrange for yourself with a local sim card.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are surrounded with fruit orchards, farms, for a peaceful and relaxed country lifestyle.
    Well teach you about the rural kiwi lifestyle with chances to meet sheep, horses and cows. At the very least you'll hear betty the cow talking to you.

  • Help


    The property is too big for us all to manage so we are looking for some help all around with a variety of tasks from Gardening to organising, cleaning and sorting, and picking fruit and pruning grapes.
    Workers need to be of a basic level of fitness - some work like hedge trimming does require a little strength.
