  • Description


    Hi there!

    We are a young family who seem to always have a project on the go. We are teachers and property managers for short term accommodation, also currently looking at the potential of setting up a Glamping site in Dunedin. We have 3 young children, aged 4, 2, and our 3rd was born in January this year. We also have a friendly labrador/collie.

    We need people who are sensible, open-minded, have initiative, but are not afraid to ask questions if they are unsure about anything.

    We look forward to hearing from you!

    Simon, Sacha and family.

  • Accommodation


    We can accommodate 2 people (in a King bed) in our own home. You will have your own bedroom and ensuite - this space is let out at times (but we purposely only take bookings sparingly). We insist the kids stay out of these areas. You will have access to our lounge, "playroom", kitchen and laundry.

    During the winter, we may be able to accommodate up to 4 people in one of our other properties that are otherwise let out. You would have the entire house to yourself.

    We will provide all meals and accommodation in exchange for 4-5 hours of work per person, per night.
