Looking for a beautiful place to stay ? Want your own space? Happy to relax at a place nestled in the native bush of the West Coast? Contact us!
We are a family of three (our baby, my partner and I) – and looking for someone who wants to stay with us in Punakaiki for a while (the longer the better, but open for shorter stays as well).
We moved to Punakaiki March 2020 and now owning and managing the Retreat. On the property also lives Tom, who is doing maintenance around here.
Now we’re looking for someone who enjoys living remotely, is hands-on, open-minded, friendly, tidy and easy going that can help us in the Retreat. For exchange we can offer a cottage/house for yourself, unlimited Wi-Fi and fun people to meet and live with. We do not expect many hours, as we do not think that we’re getting that busy – some days more, some days less. There are also other (paid) jobs available in the area (motel, café, …).
In Punakaiki are a lot of walks and beaches to explore, the most beautiful sunsets to watch and it’s always peaceful – perfect to have a break from the busy life ;)
If that sounds like something you’re looking for, please get in touch – we’re looking very much forward to hearing from you.
