  • Description


    We live on the Otago Peninsula, only 20 minutes away by car or bus to Dunedin. We are a busy family of four, slightly chaotic but easy going, friendly and welcoming. My husband is very busy and so I'm looking for somebody to help me in the garden, chop wood and some painting.

    What else ...

    There is a lot to do in and around Dunedin which we can show/tell you about. We have unlimited wifi but would prefer it if device usage was limited when the kids are around. We are non-smokers nor party animals/night owls so our place would perhaps suit somebody who prefers a quieter life or is happy to head into town for a night out. We are looking for somebody who has practical skills, is considerate, honest and trustworthy; who can relate to kids and is not high maintenance!
