  • Description


    Hi, I am an easy going independent 50 year old female that runs my own cleaning company on Waiheke Island. I have lived on the island for 7 years. I live 10 minutes walk away from beautiful Palm Beach. I live in a white round igloo looking house that has a mezzanine floor spare bedroom. I enjoy being around people that are easy going, talkative have a sense of humor and who are self motivated. I have been a meat eater all my life but have no problems sharing my house with vegetarians or vegans. I am a great lover of music and spent 12 years in the music industry managing bands nationally and internationally and now have an eclectic taste in music. The house is shared with a rather large cat called Koko who use to be an alley cat but is now living in paradise. The jobs I would have available are house cleaning and tidying up a rather large back yard. The island has a number of beautiful beaches and approximately 36 wineries as we are all on tank water on the island we do our bit by conserving water and quite often drinking wine. I am specifically looking for someone who has building skills and will be able to build a deck off the back of my house.

    Waiheke Island has some of the most beautiful beaches and wineries in the world. It also has easy 40 minute ferry ride access to Auckland city. Where I live there is a bus stop 5 mins down the road and Palm beach is 10 minutes walk away. There are also lot of travelers on Waiheke Island in the summer time. The island is great for hiking, kayaking, snorkeling and diving.
