We are looking for enthusiastic travellers who would like to share our lifestyle for a few weeks. We share our time between Wellington city and our lifestyle block one hour away in the country. Two properties keep us busy and we are finding it difficult to maintain our rural farmlet. Wellington city is known as the "coolest little capital in the world" and we think our lifestyle block is a little piece of heaven only 10 kilometres from the coastal beach and with a beautiful river on our doorstep. We would expect our volunteers to come back into the city with us a couple of days a week.
We are an easy going couple with adult children who no longer live at home and we like to make the most of both the places we own. Our visitors would be able to access great biking, tramping and swimming/surfing as well as river based activities including fishing.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We need help with general large garden maintenance. Lawns, hedges, pruning, weeding, and some minor house maintenance. Volunteers need to be able to manage light machinery at times. Couples preferred.
We have a 4 bedroom 3 bathroom home in the country and in the city we have 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Both homes have stunning views and in Wellington we are within walking distance of the city centre.
There is no public transport at our country home but we can pick up and deliver volunteers to local transport, bus or train 8 kms away in Otaki. Of course we can all travel into town together on our days off.
