  • Description


    Hi my name is Robyn and I live in what I think is a fantastic place in New Zealand- out at Raglan, famous for it's amazing surf, laidback lifestyle and friendly community. My home is a lovely, sunny, comfortable and creative space which I share with my wee dog, as well as friends and family who come to chill out at the beach.

    I work as a health professional and love to make art and craft as well as photography, practicing yoga,and getting out to the beaches and into the beautiful bush areas near my home, I am also vegetarian and like to share delicious vegetarian meals . I like to travel myself and so am always interested in meeting people that are traveling - no matter what their age.

    Because I work three days of the week you will need to be able to work alone and sometimes be available to work with me on a project over the weekend. I am pretty flexible how you do your hours - eg 4 hours a day or 8 hours one day and a day off the next....20 hours over the week in total whether that's during the week or weekend.
    I have a small self contained studio that I run as a BnB which may be part of your list of chores to do cleaning and getting it ready for guests, there is gardening to do and general looking after/maintenance around the house.

    Current/upcoming projects I would like to have some help with are painting interior rooms of the house, in Summer painting the exterior of the house & outside buildings - you will need to have some experience in this. Also, I need to build a fence - if you have the skills to do this independently that would be fantastic - you will need to be confident in using power tools.

    I sometimes need help with craft projects so an ability to use a sewing machine could come in handy.

    What else ...

    While there is bus service in the area it is not particularly frequent or useful for getting around beyond taking you to Hamilton city, but I have bikes you can borrow to easily ride into town's an easily walkable distance to swim in the harbour....need to drive or cycle to get to good surf beach.
