  • Description


    We are a family of 3, along with Ruby our labradoodle, living in Meadowbank, central Auckland. This is an ideal location for workawayers who want to be close to the city or the beach with easy access via public transport. Steve and I are a professional couple who work Monday to Friday and our son Tom is 22 year old who is studying during the week. We have a warm sunny architecturally designed home with lovely garden surrounds and pool. We welcome workawayers who have experience of painting (windows and doors) and are happy to assist with gardening and maintenance around our home and maybe even walk Ruby at one of our beautiful local parks. depending on the time of year, we have 1 -2 double rooms, bathroom, and kitchenette. We will feed you well! We welcome people 24 years and older and couples work well with us.
    If you contact us with a request, please do get back to us soon after we have responded - we understand people are looking at options but as a busy family we would appreciate your early contact to either accept or decline,
