  • Description


    My property is situated in the beautiful Clarence Valley on the North Kaikoura Coast with easy access to ocean, river and mountains. I am looking for people with practical skills in gardening, cleaning and building to help me develop and run a busy rural accommodation. Outdoor activities are aplenty and your food is usually fresh from the garden. I prefer to speak with helpers by phone before they come to ensure a good 'fit' with my needs.

    Ochiltree is a 2.5 acre property with numerous buildings that require a tidy up. The forest needs it's paths maintained and trees watered.The vegetable garden requires weeding and planting. The beautiful friendly dog Lulu needs new friends to take her for walks. You don't need all of these skills to come but a willingness to work and learn new skills is essential.

    The nearest shops and cafe's are 40 km away so if you need these regularly you will be better having your own transport. Great walks from the property and a very willing dog to accompany you.
