    *****HOILDAY HOUSE MAINTENANCE *****
    We are lucky enough to part own a small holiday house (commonly know in NZ as a Bach), it's based at an area call the South Rangitata Reserve, about 20min drive North East of Temuka, its at the mouth of the Rangitata river. Being a costal Bach its always in need of maintenance ie. Painting, gardening and just general tidying up. As we seem to never find the time to get around to doing the work we've decided to put it out there and see if there's any workaways keen on a bit of painting etc.
    There's lots of options around how it can work, you could do a couple days out there then take a few day off touring, come and go from our place or even stay at the Bach, we're really flexible as we're just keen to get it done.

    Let us know if your keen and if you have some basic skills to get the project started. We have a vehicle and all the tools here to do all the work.

    ******************************************

    We are a family of four. Mark, Vicki, Lachlan & George.
    Me and Vicki have both traveled & lived in London for three years, we used our time there to travel and meet new people, we really treasure this time in our lives and the experiences we got from it. When older we'd love for our boys to travel so what better way of planting the travelling seeds in them than to bring the world to our home.

    We own a local building business and Vicki is a school teacher and assistant principal , Lachlan & George both attend our local schools.
    We love spending time outdoors, camping, water skiing, hiking and both boys play winter and summer sports. We enjoy meeting new people and learning about your corner of the world while helping you to see ours, we'd like Workawayers to become part of our family and community while staying with us and will do our upmost to give them a true Kiwi experience.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We try to treat our workaway guests like another member if the family, giving them the chance to come to sport practices and games, visiting family and friends, joining in with family activities. Having travelled ourselves we know a how a small slice of family life while being so far away from your own family can mean the world.

    We are a kiwi family and live as such, we enjoy the outdoors and love to show people and are very proud our beautiful NZ.
    We loved our time travelling and living overseas and value the experiences we had meeting people from all round the world, we'd love for our two boys to travel so what better way of sowing the seeds of travel than to bring the world into our home. The boys will be shy at first but then be ready for them to ask a million questions and want to show you their school, sports clubs and favorite places. If your super lucky you'll get the Lachlan & George guided tour around Temuka.
