  • Description


    Looking for 2 helpers as soon as possible

    Simon and I live on a lifestyle block of 5 acres on the edge of Havelock North. We have a large garden ,though mostly trees and shrubs and we grow a lot of our own vegetables and fruit.
    We have a farm 45 minutes from Havelock North and we spend a few nights each week up at our farm.
    We are really keen travellers and enjoy meeting people from all around the world.
    We have had many foreign travellers come and stay with us here (you can ask us for a link for our reviews on another site) and we are still in touch with a number of them who have become part of the family.
    We have 4 grown up children - 2 of whom are living overseas - Our son Hugo, 30 is travelling in South America and Geordie 22 at University in the USA. We have 2 daughters -Eve, 25 and Lucinda 29 who both live and work in Auckland

    We are looking for 2 helpers to help us out as soon as possible- the work will involve trimming plants, weeding and other garden jobs. On wet days there would be inside jobs to help clean in the house - eg window cleaning

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We really enjoy meeting people from other countries and we enjoy meeting people from all walks of life.
    Our home in Havelock North has a lovely rural outlook but is close to the village - 3km away. There are great walks nearby, many wineries in the area and its only 20 minutes to the beach.

    Our farm is a unique place with lots of beautiful walks and views and we have found that visitors from overseas really love the countryside where our farm is situated.

    Hi, we are looking for 2 helpers at our home in Havelock North to help in the garden with trimming and weeding.
    Also to help in the house - cleaning, cleaning windows etc
    Sometimes we need help on our farm which is 45 minutes from Hastings - this would be to do jobs such as cleaning the yards

  • Accommodation


    At our home in Havelock North the helpers stay in a separate accommodation which has a bedroom, sitting room ,small kitchen and their own bathroom. Usually the helpers eat dinner with us but will prepare their own breakfast and lunch and eat that in their own accommodation but we provide all the food.

    At our farm the helpers would stay in a cottage with 3 bedrooms ,a living room and a bathroom.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Helpers need to have their own transport as there is very limited public transport in our area. This then means that the helpers can explore all the wonderful sights of Hawkes Bay in their spare time.

    Hours expected

    Maximum 4 hours a day, 6 days a week but we are very flexible and sometimes it might work better for the helpers to work a full day then have the next day off
