  • Description


    We are a Kiwi family with two young girls looking for help with renovating a house and tidying up the gardens. We live in Hamilton, New Zealand. While not working you are welcome to enjoy the pool (when warm enough) or the garden. We are close to the river, and one of New Zealand's great cycle ways 'Te Awa' if you enjoy cycling.

    Hamilton is central to many spots if you have a vehicle, including Raglan township and beach, Auckland, Rotorua, Waitomo, Hobbiton and Tauranga/Mt Maunganui.

    We need someone to help with renovating a house. It will include sanding, painting, gardening, digging etc. Would be great to find someone who is experienced with this sort of work.

    May also need help around the house with meals and cleaning.

    We are very close to the Waikato River Walks and Te Awa Cycle Trail. Hamilton has a number of great parks and things to do - the Hamilton Gardens are world class, Taitua Arboretum is amazing, Hamilton Lake etc. Slightly out of town you will find the bird sanctuary at Maungatautari.

    You could also take a day trip to Rotorua, Auckland, Mt Maunganui etc. Rotorua is famous for its cultural experiences but also has fantastic walking and Mt biking in the Redwood forests. The nearest beaches are Raglan and Mt Maunganui. Waitomo Caves (underground caves and glow worms) and Hobbiton are also worthy of a day trip.

    Recommend you have a vehicle to see the Waikato.
