  • Description


    Update - We hare in current need of a couple or two friend looking for a workaway stay on this beautiful island. We need to do some outdoor projects that involve tidying up the bush/forest areas in our yard in addition to helping us extend an external stormwater drain . We are prepping out yard for the installation of a new septic system. Ideal stays would be 1 or 2 weeks, with likely around 5-6 days on this project during that time. This is an immediate need, please feel free to send me messages and I will replay asap.

    We are a couple who moved to Auckland 3 years ago and have fallen in love with the area and now we want to share this beautiful piece of paradise with others. We adopted a puppy during lockdown and now have a lovely and friendly 5 months old pup living with us who would love to meet you. She is currently about 14kgs.
