    Description

    We manage a farm 50 minutes North of Gisborne. Inland from Tolaga Bay. We own great Danes, farm dogs, horses, cattle and sheep. ( please only come if you like dogs! ) We are a young couple with a newborn, Toddler and Pre Schooler.

    We have a 1 bedroom room off the carport with use of the facilities in the main house.
    Meals will be had together with us as a family.
    We have allot going on at the farm and you will be invited to anticipate when able with Jon - sheep and cattle work, mustering with dogs etc
    We have unlimited wifi at the Main house which you are welcome to use at anytime you wish.
    Vodafone cellphone reception at the main house.

    We are currently looking for someone who is flexible and willing to fit in with our daily life during the busy October school holidays ( 2. weeks from 28th Sept - October ) We will have 3 kids under 5 years old at home, who love going for walks, playing outside and activities at home or in town. An extra pair of eyes to supervise would be great. In return you will get to be involved in our family activities at home and in town ( beach trips, bike parks, visiting friends )
    Meal times ( especially dinner time ) are busy, we would be looking for someone to help pitch in with supervising bath time, help preparing meals and watching the baby whilst the older kids are put to bed )
    Any help with washing, vacuuming, tidying, cleaning windows would be very much appreciated.

    We are 15 minutes from Tolaga Bay and its historic wharf and township.
    Viewing shearing & mustering may be possible as well as other activities depending on the season.
    Up the top of the farm there are spectacular views over Tolaga Bay and also towards Mount Hikurangi on a clear day. If hiking is an interest there are plenty of walks we can recommend.

    So if you want a unique NZ experience we look forward to hearing from you :) Send us an email!
