  • Description


    I am looking for about 6 people to help me for a couple of weeks help to bring my lovely sunny villa (house) in Dunedin up to scratch as I have moved to Auckland and need to get the house and gardens nice so my friend's daughter and her young family can move into it. It will be hard work but I also think we could have a lot of fun and laughs doing it, we will have nice food and a BBQ everyday. I and my friends will be also doing all this alongside you. Dunedin is beautiful and lots for you to do after you finish if you want to.

    We are a crazy bunch of people who like to have fun while doing anything, I have travelled extensively myself and love to talk about where others have been and hear about peoples lives and travels. My friends are the same....among these is mad english woman who has horses and has offered that for anyone who is an experienced rider they can go to her place for a nice ride on the beach or forest on one of their horses :) I promise while it will be hard work we will have a lot of fun while we do it.

    3 Bedrooms, an awesome shower, kitchen etc...nice sunny fact everything you need to relax. The bedrooms will have comfortable blow up beds and if you need bedding and pillows etc we can arrange that. We are in the Roslyn area of Dunedin and that is about a 20 minute walk to the city centre, but there are buses. All food will be provided, breakfast will be bread, eggs, bacon, cereals etc, you cook your own or if we have a 'camp mum'...she might take on that task for everyone, lunch will be either a BBQ, sandwiches, salads etc and dinner either BBQ, pizzas will eat well.... While the internet has been disconnected we can give you some limited tethering off our cellphones so you can pick up emails and let people know you are ok.
