  • Description


    Hi there Workawayers!
    We are looking for a responsible helper to help us with the children from late June ..Auckland based ..before and after school care while one parent is away ..competent driver and able to prepare a family meal - for 1-2 weeks . Car will be provided .

    We are a happy , relaxed family with two school children , 9 and 11 who are fun and love playing games. We live on a small farm with horses, dogs, cats, pigs, chickens and a goat plus we grow lots of flowers , so there is always plenty of colour here. We welcome helpers with different skills as there is always something to do here - indoors or outside working on the farm . We enjoy meeting new people and sharing our home , but we also appreciate independent helpers who are happy to get out and explore our beautiful area.
    We live 30 minutes from the Centre of Auckland and only 10 minutes to one of the most popular beaches in Auckland - Muriwai - it is a wonderful place to spend time ..
