    Description

    Hi, my name is Donna.

    We live on a very secluded, 2 acre block in beautiful Peria Valley 20 minutes from Kaitaia, and about 25 mins from Taipa. There is a running stream with a swimming hole.

    We have a family of fur babies including chinchillas and a dog and cats, so if you have any allergies, maybe you should take this into consideration.

    I'm a keen gardener and really enjoy building and, having recently moved to the area, so have a variety of things we can do. We have almost finished the houses renovation but there a couple of unfinished projects we could work on. When we are not working we often go the beach with a very keen dog in tow.

    We are vegetarian and smoking is okay outside on the veranda.

    You will be sharing my home with a separate bedroom. I will provide three vegetarian meals a day in exchange for 4 hours of work, 5 days a week.

    You are also welcome to put up a tent on my very secluded property.

    I have NO wifi and no cellphone coverage.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I am very close to Cape Reinga, so you can take a lovely day trip with one of our tour bus companies. 90 Mile Beach is 25 mins from my home, and the most photographed beach in New Zealand is about half an hour away. Approximately ten minutes drive is a lovely deep swimming hole and waterfall. I often go to our local Taipa beach.
