  • Help


    We are looking for help with creating organic garden spaces and yard work. Also moving a few piles of rubbish into bins (we've been renovating). Painting and the odd bit of cleaning. We are not sure how long it will take but looking for a single or couple for two to three weeks.

  • Accommodation


    The accommodation is a comfy and spacious retro caravan. Providing a kiwi camping experience, but with a touch of luxury with an outdoor area with lounge suite to enjoy. Access to the house for bathroom and food will be shared at night. Will likely be a few bbqs. Breakfast and lunch provided. Happy to cater for any dietary requirements.

    We are close to Pukekura Park, Te Henui track and easy drive out to the mountain. We are also fairly close to the CBD. We are DIYers and like to get stuck in. However, I am now busy with my one year old and need some help sprucing the place up. My husband is a builder and he is busy tearing the house to pieces to create a wonderful space for me and my son. Good understanding of English is very important.
