Hello we run a Motel in Te Anau part of Fiordland National Park and have some great walks like the Kepler, Routeburn & Milford Tracks.
We like to host people from all around the world giving them a taste of where we live in one of the most beautiful places in NZ.
We are currently operating 2 motels in Te Anau so help is always welcome and we have now been hosting for over 5 years.
Helpers must be able at least to make beds and work a vaccum cleaner !!!! Yes some helpers cannot even manage this so if you are able to do this type of work please apply if you are coming for a holiday camp we are far to busy for time wasters so please don't apply you will be helping our full time staff from 9am -1pm at least 5 days per week in the mornings only and you much help either cook dinner or help with meal prep as part of your stay.
We treat the good helpers very well.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
All our helpers we have had have had a fabulous time in Te Anau most of them extending their stay with us for weeks and one or two a couple of months. Evening work can be offered in the town to those with working visa's so this has been a bonus. 2016 Season has seen two helpers getting full time employment in Te Anau for which they are now living in the town in their own flats so this has been great for our town and our employers.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
Help mainly involves cleaning, making beds etc
Gardening and window cleaning would also be done some days but no heavy lifting
People that can multi-task is very important and also must be mature and used to volunteering unsupervised at times.
Day starts here at 9.00 am to 1pm approx daily for up to 6 days per week this can be flexible as we know you would like to see the area too.
Accommodation is within the house part of the Motel with Kathy our Manager but Irene & Dave are always around sometimes sharing with another helper is required mainly when when the season is busy.
