    Hi, we are Rolls & Lizzy.

    We are busy professionals working from home, we have 2 Maine Coons who love a play and cuddle and to be taught tricks. Our 3 young-adult sons visit us, sometimes with friends, so the home is often vibrant.
    We live on a hill close to walking tracks and nature. Within a 7km radius we have the city centre, beaches and a harbour.

    Integrity, respect, cleanliness, tidiness and laughter are important values to us.
    We are thinking people, and enjoy discussing ideas. No subject is taboo.

    We welcome a good connection with our WorkAwayers. E.g., eating together or going out together for a drive, shop or walk.

    We are interested in spirituality, and have a holistic view of life.
    We prefer eating unprocessed food and to improve our micro-nutrients uptake.
    Having a light eco-footprint, recycling and up-cycling are important to us.
    We enjoy meditation and would like to improve our yoga and massage skills.
    We would like to improve our foraging skills (living off the land), and learn to use in-season food to preserve or ferment.
    Our favourite kitchens include Mediterranean/middle Eastern, and Far East.

    A skill Rolls would like to learn is creating, commissioning and hooking up IoT devices and then API calling into SQL.

    We live in a large house with large garden on the hill in a beautiful part of town. We are also landscaping a piece of land in Governors Bay where we want to build our home. We are aiming to be quite self sufficient with permaculture, solar power and rain harvesting. There are various tasks ranging from propagation, planting, pruning, weeding, laying paths, creating decks/patios, installations, etc.

    We are involved with voluntary work and charities so may invite you to join us.

    We may ask you to help with household chores too and we expect a certain degree of tidiness and cleanliness.

    We anticipate being fairly hands-off and let you get on with the job at hand, which might be more suited to people with a mature outlook. Dr Google is a great help!

    Algo más...

    Beautiful walks, sailing, beaches, surfing, kite-boarding, kayaking, fishing, city centre - all close by.
    The Port Hills are at our back-door with many walking tracks and stunning views.
    The Alps are 90 minutes away with amazing tramps, hot pools, and climbing.
    Christchurch is recovering after the Quakes with some really neat places to see.
    Rolls likes being outdoors and Lizzy likes to browse at Op Shops, so you will have opportunities to see Christchurch and surrounds.
    Rolls grew up in New Zealand, we have travelled extensively throughout New Zealand, and we can share with you the best places.
