  • Description


    Hello travellers!

    We would love one or two keen people to stay in our home and take care of one cat and one small dog and do some spring cleaning.

    We are a relaxed Kiwi family - me and my husband - Jen and Greg (both 50 yrs old) with one son Rocco (14 yrs old).

    Our workaway accommodation for this period will be in our self contained completely separate 3 bedroom downstairs flat.

    We travelled in Canada/USA/Alaska in 2015 and we were workaway volunteers ourselves and Loved it! Also travelled Malaysia and Nepal in 2017. We have hosted quite a few workawayers at home and love keeping the travel vibe going!

    We work to fuel our passion for travelling, enjoying life and chilling out!

  • Help


    We would love one or two keen people to stay on our home while we are away and take care of:
    * Our animals - one small Bichon Maltese dog that needs to be fed, daily walks and lots of cuddles! but can be left home alone for when you want to go adventuring around Auckland. There is also one cat to feed.
    * The majority of the work is a house spring clean
    * The swimming pools - we have a big portable pool and hot pool and they require daily care so as not to go green - small job but needs to be done daily
    * Keeping the lawns and garden tidy
    * Some evening meals prepared

    We are open to this extending earlier or after Easter a bit as the cleaning job may take a few weeks?!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are 15 mins (without traffic!) to downtown Auckland but live in a suburb with lots of trees and native bush. It's a great base to explore Auckland City. There is a good bus service at the top of our road (1km @10min walk) into the city - We can give you lots of 'local' tips on where to go and what to do.
