  • Description

    Description

    We are Stewart and Sharon. My husband is a retired veterinarian and we have moved to Taupo. We live 5 minutes from Taupo town centre and 5 minute walk to Lake Taupo
    We have decided to change our lifestyle and start to renovate houses. We enjoy doing up houses and creating lovely homes. The current home we live in is a 3 bedroom/3 bathroom with an adjoining flat we run as a rental.
    We have a range of different jobs we are currently working on like gardens, renovating different properties, painting fences etc etc. Sometimes could be inside or outside just depends on where we are at and at what stage.
    We have 3 dogs and 2 cats. We can host 1 or 2 people or couples. 1-2 weeks or more is great. We have 2 Kayaks for you to use and a couple of bicyicles for helpers to borrow.
    We welcome the help and the chance to meet and befriend overseas visitors. You get to see a beauitful part of NZ and get involved with a kiwi lifestyle and some lovely outdoor activities.
    4 hours work per day or 8 hours one day and next day off to go look around. It is up to you!!!
    We do prefer helpers to not have specific dietry needs as we find this quite disruptive to meal planning/cooking
    and grocery shopping.
