Join me gardening and landscaping in beautiful Raumati South, New Zealand



 Min stay requested: 1 week or less



  • Description


    Hi, I live in a comfortable house in a cute community, close to a beach, and about one hour by train from Wellington. I have two spare bedrooms and am keen to swap some gardening and general help, for accommodation.

    I love this part of NZ and am a keen photographer. I'm always happy to share ideas of what to do and see here and in other parts of NZ.

    Raumati South is a fantastic place all year round for walks on the beach, great sunsets, close to bike trails, cafes and restaurants.

    The food provided is vegan/plant based.
