    Descrição

    **Currently looking for helpers who love to weed/prune/move plants etc or lay lino or floating wooden flooring or replace kitchen units or do diy / home maintenance. Or who can sand and paint exterior of house...or let me know what you enjoy doing and your preferred dates and will let you know if I can host :) We hope to meet you soon!**

    I am from the uk originally but came to Wellington for a week around 20 years ago and didn't leave! The kids have grown up fast and are now 17 and 16 years old. My son splits his time between here and his Dads.

    I am generally pretty laid back- and in the evenings I enjoy relaxing with a cup of tea. I love to hear about different cultures and life experiences. A bad back has meant I can't do as much as I used to physically.

    That and other priorities has meant the home and garden needs a bit (ok...a lot) of love and skill. If you tell me what you enjoy doing am sure we can find a perfect project!

    Location-wise there is a local walking track nearby and 2km down hill to the local beaches (good for surfing) and marine reserve (good for swimming/ snorkeling) and the same distance to local bars/ shops or 5km to Courtenay place / Cuba street (Wellington CBD) or Airport. Bus service runs hourly during the day.

    On street parking (free) available if you have a car or campervan.

    Boardgames (Catan is the current favourite but open to others!) and exchanging travel stories (both past and planned) are available - or can give you some space to chill on your own if you prefer.

    Look forward to hearing from you!

    We love meeting new people and hearing about their culture and life experiences. Happy to introduce you to Settlers of Catan and when my son is home he will often explain more about the NZ culture. We can also show you how to make lemon curd and soda bread.

  • Ajuda

    Ajuda

    There are lots of mini projects to choose from depending on your skills and preferences...and how long you would like to stay in the coolest little capital city in the world!

    Outdoors my goal is to transform the current jungle like, messy garden into a well balanced, maintable eco friendly garden (space to chill/relax, space to grow and maybe even a self filtering pond / water feature)...I have a rough idea based on permaculture principles but need someone who is handy on the tools and capable to make it happen and perhaps bring a little vision of their own! Would love it if some of the existing materials can be repurposed as much as possible.

    Over summer I would love any helpers who can sand / prep / paint the house exterior - and to get caught up on general house maintenance.

    There is plenty on the to do list for indoors if you are not a fan of gardening etc too.

  • Acomodação

    Acomodação

    Happy to accommodate individuals or couples or can make arrangements if you are travelling as a small group of friends - just let me know.

    Private room with shared facilities.

    Our home isn't flash and is a little tired but it has everything you need to relax, make/ eat/ share meals, play boardgames (or read a book) and of course sleep. Depending on when you visit it may be just me or my teen(s) may also be home (there is likely to be at least 1 if not both).

    Accommodation and food/ shared meals (will stock up with the usual food items including fresh eggs from our chickens if they are laying and happy for us to cook together in the evenings if you would like - we love to learn new recipes and techniques!) in exchange for 4hrs / day (5 days a week).

    Happy to be flexible on times etc so you also get to enjoy Wellington while here.

  • Algo mais...

    Algo mais...

    Singles, couples, friends (up to 3 at a time) or families are all welcome.

    Must be ok with cats (we have 2) and chickens are in the garden too. Occasionally a dog comes to stay too.

    I eat poultry and some seafood but not red meat like pork/ beef/ lamb (but the kids do so no issues if you do!). If you are vegetarian or vegan you are welcome (please be aware there will be meat in the home and chickens in the garden).

    Maybe you can help teach me some of your favourite vegetarian or vegan recipes (I attempted to make vegan aquafaba meringues recently and they failed miserably but determined to try again!)
