We are a married couple who love NZ and are proud to show it off to visitors. We are fun, friendly and you will enjoy your stay with us. We enjoy travel, gardening and meeting people. We have moved into a beautiful house, garden and pool in Waikanae 45 minutes north of wellington on the Kapiti coast.
By helping us and having the occasional meal plus journeys into the city and to our holiday place at Lake Taupo, you will get a real feel for two born and bred kiwis.
The house however needs some TLC (tender loving care) and that means the cedar needs painting. We need help for 4 weeks or so and in return can offer accommodation in a lovely separate cottage (we own the section next door) and will pay for all meals which can prepare yourself in the cottage. It has a kitchenette, bathroom, free view TV, double bed and pull-out bed-sofa in a comfortable sitting room so would ideally suit a couple.
Working hours are negotiable, transport is good and we are only 5 minutes drive from a beautiful beach. Please email. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
