    URGENT Workaways from the BEGINNING OF OCTOBER 2019

    LAST MINUTE UPDATE: I'm looking for someone to come to my place from the 2nd October until the 17th October 2019.

    Sharing good experiences with a happy and funny retired woman

    Housework with a really good view of Rangitoto Island, next to the beaches, in Castor Bay, ideal for walking and enjoying the sunshine

    I am mature woman, friendly, funny, caring, interested in other nationalities as I have travelled a lot myself. I like sharing good experiences and keeping good memories with people.

    I am a kindergarten teacher, who's currently relieving, with many interests. I belong to two adventure clubs - red hats organisation, folk club music group, and interested in travel. I am interested in cuisines from different countries, so anyone who has a passion for cooking is most welcome.

    I am new to workaway this year but have previously worked with other hosting platforms. Living on my own, I appreciate help from people with computer skills and nightly cooking.

    I live in a nice area of the north shore with views of Rangitoto island and the sea and city lights of Auckland city with the sky tower. I am close to the north shore beaches of Castor Bay and Milford.
    Supermarkets and shops in Milford are in walking distance of my home.
    My house is close to all the North shore beaches and coffee bars. The Paper Moon restaurant won the top cafe of the year award for its coffee and cuisine.
    The Takapuna Beach cafe set on the beach in Takapuna is another popular cafe and well known for its Gelato ice-cream of many flavours.
    Milford Shopping centre has a variety of shops. It is just 10 minutes walk from my place.
    Devonport village and ferry to the islands eg. Waiheke and Auckland city are very popular with tourists.

    There is a bus stop 2 minutes walk from my house to get to Auckland central.

    At Britomart bus and train station you can take a ferry to Waiheke Island, the Gulf and Tiritiri Matangi Island to see native birds and the trees.
    There are many beaches for swimming and swimming pools at Takapuna , Albany, Glenfield local pools (admission fees apply).
