  • Description


    Hi, we are Matt and Amanda. We are a family of four with Annabelle being the oldest at 7 years old and Jasper 5 years old. We are a fun loving couple with our own business and a love for all things in the ocean and horses! We are a fit and healthy family and would love to meet you!
    An extremely busy lifestyle leaves us not a lot of time to keep on top of gardens and small jobs. We would love you to help us out. We are early risers and early to bed people that get the most out of our day!

    We live close to the beach on a small lifestyle block that we have bought in May 2020. We love to go out in the boat, mountain bike and ride horses. We love our slice of paradise, but it also comes with lots of work to get it to where we want it to be!

    We own our own business so life is pretty full on and often during the week we won’t be at home as we are at work.

    We live on a small 9ha life style block in Otamarakau, PUKEHINA and are looking for a fun couple to do general chores around our new property some of the jobs would include weedeating, spraying, weeding gardens, cleaning sheds, firewood, cooking, looking after our two children Annabelle 6 and Jasper 5. Just all round helping my husband and i whip things into shape!

    Looking for a capable couple, that likes to get out of bed in the mornings - nothing more frustrating then people that sleep in in this early rising house hold!

    We are a fun place to live with lots to do 😊

    We live off the ocean and the land, must have good English, prefer couple.

    Please have your own transport as we are rural with no spare vehicle.
