My partner and I have returned to New Zealand from overseas, travelling around Europe and living the ski lifestyle in Canada for the past 2 years.
We are busy renovating and would love some help with this project. This job is suitable for a couple or an individual. The job will involve, renovating an old bungalow house that needs some of the interior painted, mainly bathroom and laundry (we are looking to fully update the bathroom and laundry), and a makeover in the garden (replanting new plants/painting a fence). The hours will be 5 hours a day (25 hours per week). You can choose how you work those hours. If you wanted to do 2 or 3 long days so you can have the rest of the week off to travel around, that would be fine with us!
You will be living with us in our home in Napier South, a 10-15 minute walk to the city centre and 5-minute walk to the beach. We can arrange for some bikes so you have a way of transport to explore the town further.
We will provide food weekdays. I am happy to cook every night during the week or leave food for you to have in your own time if you would rather that.
Luke and I are young and fun and are very keen on the outdoors. We would love to take you on adventures to explore the beautiful Hawkes Bay or away to our holiday house in Mahia Peninsula if you are keen to join in and head out for some fishing!

Help around the house
Travellers will benefit/enjoy the 'Kiwi' lifestyle experience on the East Coast of New Zealand. They will have opportunities to experience what we enjoy in the Hawkes Bay by taking them on adventures in the weekends (if they are keen). Travellers will learn the skills required to renovate and landscape and hopefully how to catch big fish!
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.

You will have a fully furnished bedroom in a 3bdrm house, the house that is getting renovated.
There is plenty to see in Hawkes Bay. Napier is a good hub to travel to other places around the North Island and even the top of the South Island. We would be happy to show you local sights during the week and take you to our holiday house where we can take you fishing and experience farm life if that was what you'd be interested in. We have a lot of family spread around New Zealand to help with your stay when travelling in our beautiful country.
