  • Description

    Description

    We are looking for a helper, or a couple is fine. Over the age of 21 (negotiable) mature, tidy, helpful and motivated.

    Most help we need is around our property with weeding, firewood, general maintenance and cleaning.

    We require help with outdoor and some indoor chores. We are both hard workers, so you won't be left to work alone. Also indoor chores if you are a couple this may suit?

    Interaction with the kids is expected. We've had helpers here in the past that didn't like kids, this doesn't work for us.

    A bit of daily housework, we are a very tidy family so the house is in order. We would like someone who is very reliable.
    We expect our helpers to start from 8.30am.

    Our Wi-fi is very limited and slow due to our location, so please be aware of this. You will not have full unlimited access to wi-fi. But in town 5 mins away you will find free wi-fi.
    We run a small accommodation business in the summer months we would need those cleaned to a high standard and ready for our next guests but this is not too often, and we of course will be helping.

    We have a few animals that need tended to daily but nothing too big of a task. We have a couple of horses and you are welcome to work with them ONLY if you know what you are doing. Our daughter would love lessons if the right person came along.
    If we are not at work then days off for you to explore Fiordland. We are happy to work in with you.
    Mountain bike available to use. If you have your own car that would be a real bonus. We live 7km from town.
    We can not provide a vehicle.
    We are located in a rural setting.

    We have 1 small warm, clean & comfortable Cottage away from the main house with a double bed for our helper/s. With a new en-suite separate from your cottage only a few steps away.
    Only good honest people apply please. We are a friendly easy going family.

    Housework, we are a clean & tidy family and would like our home kept tidy, because of this there is only a little housework.
    We expect our helpers to clean up after themselves and help at meal times with meals and cleaning up.

    Cooking good tasty evening meals is really helpful. House keeping, building, pet care, baking, maintenance are all jobs we need help with.
    We like to trail our helper/s for maybe 5 days and if it works out we are happy to extend the stay if it suits us all.

    Te anau is the walking capital of the world.... this is how it is advertised. So plenty of walking tracks in the area. And gateway to milford and doubtful sounds.
    This is our first time trying this out so please excuse the vague description!
    We like the outdoors. So are an active family.
    We are non smokers. Have plenty of animals. Don't wear footwear in our home. Only eat at the kitchen table as a family & phones are banned then (it's a respectful thing to do)
