  • Description


    We are looking for help in our private household, at times that suit your own schedule. We live in a beautiful historic building at 3 km from Dunedin City centre.


    The property is in a quiet location. You will get full board (meals), your own private room and use a shared bathroom. The rooms are old and beautiful. On colder days, in the evenings we light the fireplace in the living room, and play games or listen or play music. On warm days, we have lunch in the garden.

    We're happy to cook for special wishes – we have had several vegetarians and vegans, and generally succeed in making everyone happy! Also, our kitchen is very healthy, as we mostly use fresh fruits and vegetables, and we make our own bread, yoghourt and hummus.

    Visitors help 21 hours per week, scheduled by yourself.

    When you need to go to town, you can catch a bus, or you can ride along with us.

    We love history, architecture, music, film and dance and are interested to hear stories and opinions from around the world.

    Do not hesitate to email or call for more details.

    What else ...

    Dunedin is 3km away. Bus stops are closeby, and the bus will take you to the town centre in 10 minutes. There are 2 buses per hour. Dunedin city has plenty of historic buildings, is a hub for artists and classic trades, and is a great spot for walking and hiking.
