  • Description


    We own and operate a bed and breakfast. It is situated on a small coastal peninsula with beach access, swimming pool, gardens, walks,kayaking etc. In our busiest season we have 4 rooms. Two of which are stand alone cabins, two in the house. We have a general policy of 2 night minimum during this period but can sometimes find ourselves with all 4 rooms vacated on the same day - which is a big work load to get ready for next guests, within a 4 hour window. So all the work is completed by 2 pm - and then it's relax , enjoy the sunshine, go to nearby beaches for surf or swim...or use ours.
    I will instruct on the cleaning process so there are no misunderstandings and standards are made quite clear. We will be paying the minimum wage . The hours can vary from day to day , depending on guest departures etc. We will provide a 2018 24ft caravan, with BBQ and outdoor camping chairs- you will provide food and cook for yourselves. We also provide a vehicle if required.

    They will not only enjoy our coastal environment and locals, they will meet many guests from around the world as well as form within NZ. Our district is one that tracks kiwis and helps to keep them safe from predators. We have a keen surfing community, keen hiking community and boating , snorkeling, diving. All these activities can be shared, some a t a cost, others free but at arranged times.

    The work required is for cleaning the rooms. They are stripped by us and then cleaned by you.. The standard of cleaning is paramount to our business .

    A new 24 ft Jayco Caravan. We would prefer you to eat in the caravan, cooking your own meals and where possible ( generally most nights at this time of the year) use the BBQ provided instead of the oven.
