  • Description


    We are a small family of 3 who live just outside of Auckland on a beautiful unique property, come and stay in our comfortable converted barn apartment, we have a lake, 10 acres of paddocks fruit orchards and a botanical garden. We also have 3 horses and some sheep plus 2 cats and a dog called 'Spud'. We love good food and riding our horses on the local beaches and forests. Ideally we would love to have someone with experience of handling and or riding horses. A good grasp of gardening is also a bonus. We all love to speak a little French.

  • Help


    We are looking for help with gardening / painting our barn and caring for horses/livestock and general home help. Also some general maintenance around the property. We have a large botanic style garden with a lake, chickens, lambs, ducks and a dog and cats. Ideally 4 weeks minimum stay over the spring as we have a lot to do and its our very busy time so training people on a weekly basis does not really work for us.
