  • Description


    Hi my name is Kat and I live on Great Barrier Island with my partner Shaun and our 2 girls. We also have 4 chooks (that don't seem to lay much) and a ginger cat called Simba. We are sociable and friendly and the barrier is such a great place to live. Our home is 2 minutes walk to the local shop and beach, we enjoy fishing and beach life. Paddleboard and surfboard available to use too.
    My friends use workaway and I've met some great people through them. I've decided I'd like to join in the fun too and have someone help out around the place.
