I am originally from New York, and moved to New Zealand 15 years ago. I am often in Christchurch, so there will be times when you will be housesitting as well. I was married for 25 years, and currently separated. I have two children, and they are grown and are in university. I prefer clean/tidy people. I am quiet and respectful but love to have fun. So you are welcome to join me if I go boating or hiking.

Travelers will get a chance to live in a small village in New Zealand. It is one of the prettiest places here in New Zealand. The center of a sunken volcano. There are many walks and things to do here. I am a professional chef, bartender and overall entertainer so it is a lot of fun. I have a few projects that need to be done around the property. I would like to create a bigger organic vegetable garden.

I require 1-2 people to help in my garden in Akaroa. I live in the town of Akaroa about 1 kilometer from the ocean. I have a 4 bedroom home with a lot of land that needs care. I just put in a Spa (Hot Tub). I need help weeding, pruning, planting. On rainy days, there are tasks inside or in the garage. Guests will have their own room/space, free internet/wifi, food in exchange for about 3-4 hours of help per day.
