    Description

    Hi Friends,

    We have a beautiful lifestyle block about 12km from Waiuku, on the amazing Awhitu peninsula. It's about a one hour drive from Auckland CBD. It's a small lifestyle block, with bees, cattle and a million flowers. We're very close to local west coast and east coast beaches, the Awhitu Regional Park, and other great local amenities. We are looking for helpers to help us get our large garden into great shape and to develop our vegetable garden and fruit trees. There will be lots of gardening, pruning trees and building vegetable beds. We have two great dogs and three very productive bee hives. (This location is not suitable for people who are allergic to bees).

    We have two dogs so you must be comfortable around dogs.

    You will have your own double bedroom, your own bathroom, Wi-Fi, use of a really nice kitchen and a jacuzzi to soak away your troubles....

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We're very close to local west coast and east coast beaches, the Awhitu Regional Park, and other great local amenities. However, the nearest town is 12km from the house and there is no public transport service. Therefore, this Workaway location is best for those travelers who have their own transport.
