  • Description


    We are a NZ family who love travelling and like to support other travellers. I have a garden and property that gets away on my with my busy lifestyle so am looking for help with gardening and basic home maintenance in exchange for board and breakfast. Meals are non-regular in our house but we love to meal share and socialise when possible. You will meet handsome Harley 🐕 and Miss Quinn 🐱 and they will want to know all about you.
    We are within walking distance to town and rail into Wellington city. In our region we have mountains to climb and the South Pacific to swim and surf in. Vineyards by the dozens and the famous Tui Brewery plus lots more. There is often season jobs available in horticulture and Viticulture.
