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 - our oldest son Hugo, 31 is helping on our farm, we have 2 daughters -Eve, 26 and Lucinda 29 who both live and work in Auckland and our youngest son Geordie is working and living in Boulder, Colorado
We are looking for 2 helpers to help us out- 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
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
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.
Sometimes it is possible to visit our farm which is 1 hour from our home. 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
At our home in Havelock North the helpers have a large comfortable bedroom and a bathroom which may be shared if there are other guests staying. There is a large deck on the side of the house which they are able to have to themselves.
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.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
Maximum 4 hours a day, 5 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
