    Good Host
  • Description


    I do furniture restorations and repairs. My partner, Margaret, is a manager in a English language school for foreign students. We live in Weymouth by the Sea , South Auckland. 10-15 minutes south of the Airport. We live in close proximity to the Honua Ranges and South Head of the Manukau Harbour.

    We are a couple with no young kids living with us.

    We cook at home most times and you will be welcome to join us. We like cooking but don't pretend to be "Foodies or Connoisseurs". For breakfast and lunch you will need to fend for yourself. Although we are carnivorous we do not eat any Pork product at home. We can provide you with evening meals when we are at home and cooking. It will be good if you can assist and help clean after. On the weekends we do entertain a bit with people coming over the weekend for a meal or BBQ's

    We have interest in fitness but we are not obsessed about it.

    Absolutely no smoking in the house or outside please. We are a smoke free house.

    We do like Art but do not pretend to know much about it.

    We have a black cat called Laila

    You can go fishing at the end of the garden when the tide is high. Swim in the harbour and if you can sail, you can take the dingie out.

    Work in the garden. The garden needs some on going maintenance. From weeding and planting to digging and cutting trees. We bought the house recently so some work around the house also needed.

    If you are mechanically minded I need some help with some basic mechanical work on cars and motorbikes. I have several cars from vintage-classic to retro to latish models. Will be very good if you can weld.

    Also, I need someone to teach me how to sail a small dingie. We have a dingie but need some lessons to improve.

    Cleaning is also needed. In particular, Spring Clean. Good scrub to the bathroom, cleaning the windows - lots of windows, dusting the surfaces. And so on. Must be thorough with cleaning habits.
