    Description

    Wanted a couple, or a single now please for our holiday home in Fiordland, that would suit a couple best or a young man. That is mainly for outside work, gardening etc. There may be extra hours required which we would pay you for. Our property is on the water, near Manapouri (at Lake Monowa) , you can go paddle boarding, kayaking and swimming, plus lots of hikes with no tourists into beautiful Fiordland. You will be feed well, my husband loves cooking.

    In Christchurch we have 11 acres in the countryside with horses and a dog. We have great accommodation and food. We are interesting hosts who will make sure you have fun while helping us. If you are an experienced equestrian great but if not that is fine as we always have some projects on the go we need help with, mostly outdoor but some indoor. We dont require any extra help here at the moment but some next year.

    We run a software company in Christchurch and we live 1/2 hour from Christchurch city. The bonus is that we also have a wonderful holiday home in the deep south on the border of Fiordland - so if suitable you would be welcome there as well if the timing is right. Right now I am looking for a couple who could do some planting and other gardening on our property, plus we are having a big party at our place next weekend which will be a lot of fun. Hope to hear from you soon.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My husband is Swiss/German originally but now a Kiwi!! I am born and raised in NZ - so we know and love NZ and we have access to great NZ meat and produce - and are great cooks (well my husband is more of a Chef). We like to laugh a lot.

    Our lifestyle is very interesting for visitors, we live in the countryside but have a relatively short commute to the city, have lots of interesting stories to share and have great outdoor trips to Fiordland, so much more but you would have to visit to find out more. We love having happy people around who don't mind some hard work but enjoy new experiences.

    We would give you tasks to do that best suit your skills and depending on what projects we have planned. Soon we will be building some stables (we will have a local professional building this but if suitable you could help with this).

    Same goes for some wood chopping and gardening. If you are a horsey person you can help with the horses and riding if suitable (dressage, show jumping). A couple or 2 friends would be welcome also.

    We will cook you great dinners (breakfast and lunch are usually help yourself to food provided as we work in the mornings through the week). We love it if you like to help in the kitchen, you will learn a lot there with my husband.

    Nice bed and bathroom. We have accommodation in our house but also in our huge barn, it is quite an amazing building (have a Gym and full size bar/entertainment room (this is for private functions for friends and family).

    What else ...

    We have good Wi Fi at both properties. Time off you can go to the city, or local town of Rangiora, there are walks around the area or in the city in the Port Hills. You need a car to go to these places but if you don't we can help make sure you can still get out and about. You look after us and we look after you.
