Help in the house
A steep property of 2000 m going down to the waters edge heavily planted which needs constant weeding/trimming. Additional landscaping desirable but not imperative.
English, un peu Francaise.
Double room in a modern luxury home overlooking the Kerikeri inlet. No en-suite but separate bathroom. TV, fast wireless internet (unlimited download VDSL) and loads of media. Close to township - 4km. Off street parking.
Smoking permitted in outdoor covered room.
I tend to keep European hours for eating but am a good cook and like doing so for others. I'll make you a nice meal each evening and no cleaning up after me. A range of items is available for you to help yourself for breakfast and lunch. I like to present tasty New Zealand fare so vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free are a bit too much of a challenge for me.
Kayaks at the bottom of garden free to use. Life jackets available. Gateway to the Far North and comprehensive knowledge to share. A private, quiet and secure environment.
I have a young Golden Retriever who will be delighted to "help" you.
Ordinarily I prefer a stay of five to seven days and can often assist in finding additional hosts that I know in the area. And if you wish to purchase a cheap car to explore this beautiful part of the world I can often help with that also.
