  • Description


    We are a busy family running a sheep and beef farm 25 mins out of town. We have a spacious home and large garden that we need a bit of extra help with.

    Hawkes Bay is a beautiful region, known for its excellent wine and food and lovely beaches.

    We have both travelled extensively and look forward to hosting you.

    We are getting married at home in March and before then need to get the place in good shape!
    The garden needs maintenance, weeding and trimming and general tidying up. There would be house work and occasional care of our young boy.

    The accomodation is in a private wing of our home with bedroom and bathroom.

    We are looking for a fit couple who love animals, children and the outdoors. Ideally you will have your own vehicle as we are 25mins drive from town.
