  • Description


    Enjoy a stay with a local NZ born kiwi who loves visitors!

    This is an opportunity to stay by the beach and assist in completing the finishing touches on some building projects and also can include some housekeeping/cleaning.

    Located in a small beachside community, which is a 20 minute drive from Dunedin city. Nice ocean views from the 6-bedroom home. Brighton beach is lovely and is only a few minutes walk away, as are the local convenience store/takeaway, coffee shop/cafe and bus stop which will take you to Dunedin city if you do not have your own transport.

    You will have your own room/rooms in a home which is shared with myself (the owner) and my flatmate(s). More than one room is available.
