I'm a teacher and Sandy runs the household. We live on a couple of acres just out of Opotiki in the sunny Bay of Plenty. We have a large garden, a few fruit trees, and some native trees and a small field where the neighbour grazes sheep. The children have left home and we live with a dog, two cats, and a dozen hens.
Help in the house
Mostly there are odd jobs fixing, cleaning and painting around the house, and weeding in the garden.
A choice of two bedrooms in the house. One gets the sunrise with a double bed in it, and the other faces the sunset with two single beds in it
Stunning native bush, beautiful rivers and beaches all within close proximity. Motu Trails cycle track. Good fishing at the beach. Huts to stay in up the bush if you want to go there. A glorious coastline up to the East Cape.
