    Help

    I am regularly seeking happy,enthusiastic people throughout the year to help me with Gardening,Landscaping
    Building and General maintenance
    Child care .
    I am also associated with a rental car business and the local Currach Irish Pub
    You might be able to find extra paid work if you choose to
    You will be paid an hourly rate equivalent of the minimum wage for every hour worked for this help
    The hours worked in connection with the business are separate from standard workaway hours.
    Therefore we still require the standard 25 hrs a week for the normal Workaway help
    In other words every hour worked that is connected to the businesses will be paid work and will be totally separate and not included with helper hours
    If we find it works out and suits us both for you to work extra hours on the house you will be paid an agreed rate ( at least minimum wage ) depending on your skill set
    Helping with business work and extra hours on the house is entirely optional and not a definite requirement
    If you decide you want to stay longer term and we are all happy, that would be great.
    You will have the opportunity to easily intergrate into our close knit community , have fun and adventures as well as relax on one of the most beautiful beach’s in the world
    Thechildren are busy and fun loving and enjoy meeting and interacting with helpers
    We like it if you join in with our family but at the same time enjoy your own space and tranquility that is all part the being on the Island
    Everyone is expected to help with general housekeeping/cleaning and cooking or preparation of meals.
    After the evening meal we like it if everyone participates together to ensure the house is clean and tidy inside and out ready for the following day
    We don’t run a hotel 🙂
    Afterwards we can enjoy a hot drink, a board game or whatever
    WE PREFER SOCIAL MEDIA IS KEPT TO A MINIMUM in the house
    PLEASE NOTE. THE LOCATION OF OUR HOUSE IS ON GREAT BARRIER ISLAND
    IT IS SHOWN INCORRECTLY ON THE MAP

    There are Kayaks,Mountain Bikes,Boogie Boards,Snorkeling gear for you to borrow and there is always the opportunity to try your hand at fishing ,weather dependent
    We like to eat fish as often as possible and we try to eat out of our garden and the community garden
    Google Great Barrier Island and have a look at what there is to see and do.
    It is all about the outdoors and entertaining yourself and mixing with locals and other travelers if you wish.
