  • Description


    Do you like small dogs, vegan food, walking on volcanos above Cashmere, Christchurch on the Port Hills?
    A plumber would be ideal!
    I need help with staining a wooden fence, gardening (weeding/ raking easy things)... and have a small mountain house in Arthurs Pass too which we can work out you staying at.
    I’m totally vegan and love food and cooking,
    I expect 4 hours a day in exchange for food and board. I’m an ESOL teacher and can help with fluency and IELTS for more work. In the past things like working out how many hours you’d help in the garden and doing it all on the one day, then I leave you in the house alone for a week, that sort of thing works. From now to February 2 available.

    What else ...

    The house is on a lovely hill. It’s my childhood house that my Elderly Mother has left to go into a hospital.

    1970’s but pianos and garden, with tracks to explore native Bush and wood pigeons fly above... walk and exercise out the front door. Beautiful views of the Southern Alps.
