  • Description


    I am a film maker based in Wanaka, and have built my dream property, a luxury house that I live in when I am home, and rent when I am travelling for work. Myself and my partner Olivia who is an interior architect live at the property. The property is only 5 minutes drive from Wanaka, and only a few minutes to the Clutha River and Lake front. I am looking for a couple to help with landscaping and general maintenance.

    This is a unique opportunity to live in a luxury property only minutes from Wanaka. You are on the door step to one of the worlds best adventure playgrounds. I can offer a lot of insight to enjoying this area as I have lived here a lot of my life.

  • Help


    I need a helper to do a variety of landscaping and maintenance tasks. With landscaping, all the lower branches of the Kanuka trees need thinned, vege gardens need planted, and tussoks need planted. I need to oil and stain the deck that surrounds the house, along with re staining the cedar cladding. If I can find someone with building experience, there is also some small tasks around the house like building a wood shed, trellis around the spa and a floor in the storage area.

  • Accommodation


    You will get to stay in one of the private rooms in the house. You will also have your own bathroom. The house floats in Kanuka trees and has incredible 180 degree views of the Southern Alps.
    I will not be able to provide food, you will have to provide this yourself. I can provide accomodation in return for 15 hours help a week. ( 3 hours a day 5 days a week )
