I have moved to a small town called Omakau 20minutes north of Alexandra in Central Otago. I am single and in my 50's. My new wee house has had a lot of work done on it by so many amazing people. ❤️ I have now got to the stage where it’s just a bit painting and gardening left to do. My new job takes me away from home a bit and I now need someone to be there to look after my wee dog Dottie and my farm dog Tip as well as the hens. Having someone in my house if I’m away would be great to. I love to travel and meet new people and see this as a chance to give a little back. I am right beside the Central Otago Rail Trail. 1.5hrs from Wanaka, Queenstown or Dunedin. The golf course is just over the road, you can use my clubs. I have access to a hunting hut up in the hills if you wanted to experience some off the grid living. Central is very warm in the summers and the local river and pub are only 5 mins walk from the house.

If your are in to hunting there could be opportunities to go rabbit or goat shooting. I can take you fishing. This is a rural community so things are a bit different than being in town. I come from a farming back ground and can explain lots about the way we farm in NZ. I have two daughters, both married. One here in Omakau with two granddaughters and living on a sheep station and the other in Southland working on a dairy farm.
I'm just after a bit of help to bring my wee house back to her former glory. Painting, stripping wallpaper, preparing walls, sanding and just general cleaning round the house and garden/section. I also have a wee dog called Dotty and some chooks.

There are a couple of options. I have a lovely wee caravan with a double bed and you eat, shower etc inside or I have a room inside with a double bed. Cool in the summer as it can get quite hot. We will share the cooking and 3 main meals a day will be provided.
As Omakau/Alexandra is pretty handy to all the main attractions in Central there are heaps of things to do in your time off. You will need transport or I can drop you in Alex where buses run between main towns. If you come to Alex and need a ride to Omakau I can always come and pick you up.
