    Help

    We are URGENTLY looking for helpers in mid MARCH who are hardworking, enthusiastic, positive, & have initiative, who would like to have a great Kiwi experience helping us.

    Most of the help is general landscaping and helping us tidy the gardens along with some house maintenance and housework. Celia loves to cook & make bread each day, so there are 3 meals included plus a delicious morning tea... in exchange for 5 hours help each day. We are happy to help teach some favourite NZ recipes!

    You can be flexible with your hours so you can have your days off to explore this beautiful region!

    Stunning site on the waters edge of inner Tauranga harbour, awesome views, kayaks available and fishing in our small dinghy.

    Its essential to have your own transport as there are no bus services to our property.

    We are busy & sociable, enjoy mountain biking & are happy to include you in some of our outings if we can!! We are Smokefree!!

    This is an opportunity to enjoy some time in the great Bay of Plenty!!
