    Description

    Half the week, Brendon and I run a small beachside farm in the beautiful Whangarei Heads right on the Te Araroa trail, the other half we are based in Auckland's Herne Bay.

    We are at the beach from Thursday to Sunday and in Herne Bay from Monday to Wednesday

    We are looking for someone to join our family to help out with our new baby, gardening, building maintenance, shopping, or cooking and cleaning.

    Hi, thanks for taking a look at our profile!

    At the farm we are raising guinea fowl and growing several thousand native trees to return the land to its natural state. Tasks at the farm are varied from gardening (potting up plants, watering, weeding etc), general building maintenance (painting, construction, running the tractor) to help with cooking, cleaning and baby minding.

    Your accommodation at the farm is a private self contained double room with separate toilet and bathroom.

    Popular activities nearby include beach and bush walks, fishing, swimming and surfing.

    In Herne Bay your accommodation is a private third floor double room with your own bathroom and shower overlooking the beach. Tasks in the city are help around the house, help with the baby, cooking, cleaning and running errands.

    We are centrally located close to bars, cafes and shops, close to the shopping/dining precinct of Ponsonby.

    We are looking for someone to integrate with our family and so hours of help are not set as such. You will have plenty of flexibility to take time for yourself and explore.

    We have 2 cats and so this placement may not be appropriate for someone with allergies.

    Thanks for reading our profile and we look forward to hearing from you soon!
