We are a family of five living the dream in the beautiful Wairarapa. Much as we try to avoid a busy life, it can be tricky to achieve with three young children (aged 9, 6 & 3), and Dan commuting to Wellington for work. As well as general maintenance on our lifestyle block, we have a number of projects we'd like some help with.
DIY and building projects
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Our home is in a beautiful part of the world surrounded by NZ native trees and birds. We love to share our relaxed Kiwi lifestyle with others.
We have a long list of jobs and half-finished projects, so you can take your pick! Help could include landscaping, gardening, bush work, painting, fencing, housework, cooking, etc
We have a sleepout with a queen-sized bed and its own bathroom and toilet; however the shower is much (much!) better in the house, so you are welcome to use that.
The Wairarapa is one of New Zealand's top food and wine destinations, with spectacular coastlines and amazing scenery. There is plenty to see and do - Cape Palliser, Castlepoint, Mt Holdsworth Forest Park, Patuna Chasm, Blue Rock Glow Worm Cave, Lake Ferry etc. Depending on when you come, there are often some great events on too.
