Here on the beautiful Awhitu Peninsula (98kms from Britomart Transport Centre) a keen, fit, strong and practical male helper, is welcome. Summer is here and there is gardening and some weed spot spraying to be done.If you can use a spade and other gardening utensils safely we'd like to hear from you. Some farm type tasks and building repairs are also possible depending on your experience. We run our beef farm in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way. We have been awarded 4 Environmental Awards. You stay in our house, share the bathroom and relax, watch TV and eat all meals with us, or in our Farmstay building if it is vacant. We do not have Wi-Fi in our house but if your smart phone is connected to "Spark" you can get connected to the internet when inside. The other providers do work but you have to go outside. We allow people to check their emails only on our computer as we have a very very small basic internet package. I only check emails on my computer, usually in the mornings, not on my phone. But I do often check and will reply to NZ based texts. We have a small terrier dog who lives with us in the house, plus there are 3 small dogs also on the property, they are very friendly. We are a NZ couple in their 60's, non smoking, eat our home grown meat and vegetables, we can only speak English. As a "Tesol" teacher Antonia can help you improve your speaking/writing/reading of English :) Our farm is 100kms from Auckland City 97 kms from the Airport and 40kms from Waiuku township,10kms from the West Coast Beach and the Manukau Harbour Beaches. Sadly there is NO public transport to our farm, however we can pick you up and drop you off, from or at, Waiuku (bus), Pukekohe (train) or Bombay (bus) townships. There are 4 other Help X hosts very close by I can recommend, in case your friends are looking for places. The Manukau Harbour beaches are safe to swim in and the West Coast beach is good for surf-casting type fishing and surfing for very very experienced surfers.There are fantastic landscapes everywhere to photograph or paint. We happily take you with us to other places when/if we are going somewhere interesting we think you may like to see.
