  • Description


    We would be delighted to welcome you to our home at various times of the year. Our farmlet has a mix of animals that love attention. We are looking for helpers with many odd jobs like animal care, domestic care, maintenance, gardening, trimming, waterblasting, help in kitchen etc. It would change mostly everyday!

    We are a busy family that are coming and going with work committments but always enjoy the evenings with helpers sharing in our culture.

    We see ourselves as a typical kiwi home. We mostly cook kiwi style food but would love to share and learn about your culture too. Evenings are often spent telling about our city and country or playing a game of cards.

    We speak english but are always open to helping you improve your english or learning your language too!

  • Aide


    We live on 6 acres in Yaldhurst which is approx 3 kms from the airport so just on the city fringe.
    We are looking for help from approx 16th Dec - 3rd January, and are looking for a mature couple/ friends .
    We have a few cows, sheep, hens, doves , cat and 2 small dogs. All easy care.
    There will be low key gardening, watering, lawn mowing that we would need help with also.
    Our house is 5 bedrooms, very comfortable , spacious and private.
    If you feel this is something that would interest you then please could you email back (+ a pic). I am happy to answer questions to help you understand more. (My main focus is to have someone around the house as company for my dogs as we will be away some of the time. )

    Thanks kindly - Caroline

    Our expectation is for 4 hrs of work per day when owners are home otherwise general animal care and housesit when owners are away .

    We have two adult boys who are in real estate and come and go between busy schedules hence not around the house much.

    We are close to the city (approx 10kms away) with plenty of shops, parks, recreational areas, but not in walking distance.

    We have unlimited wifi with extra access points to give internet coverage throughout our large house. We would have no problem with anyone using their private time to do online work and the rooms provided would be very quiet and peaceful.

    Espace pour garer des vans

    We have plenty of room for parking a campervan or motorhome and the driveway is easy for driving around. Our entrance is through automatic gates which make the property secure and safe. We would still be happy for anyone to stay in our spare room even if they have a campervan.

    Possibilité d'accueillir les animaux

    Yes but only outside as our own cat and dogs tend to get upset.
