    Description

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ We are currently looking for a single or couple from mid 20's onwards who enjoys outdoor work and occasionally the company of people from different countries.

    Our home includes also a cat, called Pixie who loves her food and the warmth of the heater. We are placed right in the heart of Devonport and only 12 minutes by ferry from Downtown Auckland & the surrounding islands (Waiheke, Tiri Tiri, etc.).

    Our homely villa flows to a peaceful garden with a huge palm tree and a hammock - a beautiful spot to relax in the summer.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The historic centre of Devonport and the Community House (which offers various classes) is just around the corner from our home. Devonport, called the "seaside village" is very popular with international travellers for its cafes, shops, restaurants, art galleries, beaches and a historic cinema with great movies and shows). Yoga, Massage and Fitness centres are all on our doorstep.

    There are also lovely walks to the extinct volcanoes (North Head and Mount Victoria). Stroll through the parks and along Marine Parade to the ferry for a pleasant trip to the city or to the other islands.

    Most of the year - exept in the NZ winter time - we are looking for a volunteer(s) in central Devonport/Auckland. The help is about 3 hours per day, which involves general house-cleaning, some cooking sometimes (an "International dinner" with a glass of wine which we can share together) and a good amount of gardening ----- weeding, cutting and planting.
    Sometimes a handyman is required for painting and wood work. Helping me with computer related things ---- ESPECIALLY IMPROVING MY WEBSITE RANKING IN SEARCH ENGINES ----- is also an important part of the experience. We offer private comfortable accommodation in our garden sleep-out.
