Hi there, We offer space for a couple. We have only just moved to our new home so we need loads of help with this half acre garden. Note we no longer live with a coastal sea view. We prefer to have Helpx who have references as you will be living in our home. We have two friendly dogs and a friendly cat so you need to like cats and dogs. We need weeding and general gardening as our new garden has been neglected over several years. We need clearing gardening rubbish, as well as cleaning inside.
Our home is on the edge of Greytown a pretty town in the Wairarapa on the edge of the vineyard country. Greytown was the first inland settlement and has a historic mainstreet and lots of old trees as we were the first town to celebrate Arbour Day. We live a one hour train ride from Wellington city.
We offer our spare bedroom, with Queen Bed and a separate toilet. We only have space for a couple sharing one bed. We expect 4 hours a day work from you and we provide food. We do prefer to eat together as it becomes too complicated to share a kitchen and a fridge. Happy to accommodate vegetarians.
We have WIFI for internet access which you are welcome to use within reason. Most NZ broadband has a data cap - so downloading movies is not within reason.
You can mostly decide when work time is, and it can be one day longer hours, next day off. I do most of the cooking, as I enjoy cooking at the end of my busy day. We are happy baby boomer omnivores.

One of us plays lots of music, the other is an appreciative audience. We've enjoyed having many different people to stay and we like you to be part of the family and eat meals with us. We recommend you plan one week with us and include a weekend so we can show you around our beautiful region. We look forward to welcoming you to our home. Janette and Niels
