    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Meet plenty of other travellers in the Homestay and interact and learn about other cultures and languages. I can give you plenty of information about things to see and do nearby or in the City centre. Public transport (trains and buses nearby) to go to Auckland city or walk to Titirangi Village which has lots of lovely cafes, Contemporary Art Gallery (Te Uru) and beaches (Titirangi Beach, French Bay). For those that have a car there is Waitakere Regional Park (Arataki Visitor Centre) and West Coast beaches (great surfing and hiking). I also have bikes available for your use. I sometimes walk in the Waitakere Ranges which you are welcome to join me on.
    There are also several markets in the local area - Avondale market (one of the largest markets in New Zealand), Oratia Farmers market on Saturdays, Titirangi market the last Sunday of every month, Green Bay food market on Friday nights, New Lynn food market on Thursday nights. I often go to these markets - especially the food ones when I feel like a night off and you would be welcome to join me.

    I generally only seek helpers up to a month ahead, anymore than that it all gets too confusing... plans can change, especially when travelling.

    I am seeking a female Workaway to help in my small Bed and Breakfast/Homestay in Glen Eden, West Auckland. Share house with myself, and up to 12 others of varying cultures, usually travellers and a friendly Poodle called Ted.

    Looking for someone who can help with guest arrivals and general housekeeping of a 6 bedroom, 2 bathroom Bed and Breakfast.

    I'm offering accommodation and food in exchange for around four - five hours a day, 5 days a week. I usually work alongside my helpers as it can sometimes be busy, especially in the summer season.

    All food for meals provided.
    Non-smokers preferred.

    Wireless broadband is available.
    Please have plenty of information about yourself including dates available for help, past experience, a photo, age, and nationality when you contact me. I prefer stays of at least two weeks if possible.
