  • Description


    *️️️*️️️ Please check our Workaway Calendar to find out when we are needing help *️️️*️️️

    We are a family of five that live in a four bedroom house on Waiheke Island, Auckland, New Zealand. We have three kids, 12 and two adult kids who live in different cities. We love good food and enjoy life. Our house is 10-15 min walk from beach and shops. Big kitchen and a large outside area. There is always stuff to be done!

    We prefer people to stay at maximum of a week to 10 days.
    You must be over 23 years old to stay with us and be able to speak good English, have initiative and be able to work unsupervised.
    Your days can consist of may different tasks so you will need to be flexible and happy with change.
    We generally ask you to work 4-5 hours a day, the rest of the time is yours to relax or explore. If there is something extra special you want to do or would like to go we are happy to be flexible with these times/days.
    We have a dog (medium sized spoodle) and a rabbit.
    We are meat eaters (and don't genearlly cook vegetarian meals) but if you are okay with eating around our menu then we are happy to host vegetarians.

    We want you to enjoy your stay with us and you are welcome to join in with our activities. We are easy going, happy people that like to laugh and we welcome you to join us.
    The help we require is not hard so you can still get out and about and enjoy what our island has to offer.
