We are a middle aged couple living in an older house in the "bush" (forest) of the Waitakere Ranges in Auckland.
Non-smokers, with no pets
DIY and building projects
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We would like help with repairing the driveway, which is riddled with pot holes. We would also like some assistance ridding the land of noxious plants (Wild Ginger etc). This is seriously hard physical work - we want to be up front about this so you are not surprised at how tough it is.
Assistance with building projects around the house - someone with building skills and experience would be ideal
We have a fully self-contained one bedroom apartment available with a queen-size bed and a double pull out sofa.
Bathroom (Shower, Toilet), Kitchen (Small table and chairs), Lounge (Sofa, TV/DVD player, DVDs and books, CDs) , balcony overlooking the bush.
From our place there is easy access to the Auckland West Coast beaches (Piha, Huia etc) and many of the Waitakere walking tracks. There is reasonably easy public transport (bus then train) access of the city, but if you have a car available you'll enjoy your stay a lot more.
The local village has shops, cafes and restaurants etc
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
