Kia ora, we're looking for some help with some small projects around the place. We have space for a friendly easy going twosome, either a couple or two friends travelling together. Ideally you will have your own transport in order to maximise your time off and make the best of your stay with us, although, if you're happy to hang out at home or catch the bus around town, then a car is not necessary.

You will have a large room with it's own bathroom just a 1 minute walk from the main house. We have reasonable access to internet. There will be plenty of time off and good food.

Our place is located 25 mins from Tauranga and 35 mins from Rotorua. We are 5 mins from a kiwi conservation area with great bush walks, glowworms and there are thermal hot pools in a lovely country setting a five minute drive away.

We are open minded and easy to get on with. We run a few horses and a donkey, have a large vegetable garden and both work on and off the property.

There's always indoor and outdoor jobs depending on the weather. After a very wet and stormy Winter we are looking for some help in the gardens, spring cleaning the house, getting the place ready for Summer and various other jobs. Someone who likes to cook would be very welcome. Evening meals are normally taken with the family.

We are a happy family, we enjoy hosting travellers who are happy to pitch in and take life as it comes.

This is a non smoking and drug free home. We are well travelled and enjoy meeting people from everywhere. We have a 13yr old son who has always travelled with us and he enjoys company but is very self sufficient so no childcare is necessary.

You would need to be able to work unsupervised sometimes and be able to show maturity and initiative. If you enjoy being in the countryside but close to town, don't mind old houses and all that comes with that, please get in touch with us.

We have chickens, horses (too old or too naughty for riding) and their babies, cats, a donkey and a large friendly dog so animal likers only. These are spread over 2 side by side properties. Our daughter and her partner live in the other place.

Your own transport is not necessary as we are happy to pick up from the bus but if you have a vehicle you would have more independence. I'm happy to take passengers into Tauranga when I go into work. We are flexible with how the working hours are structured to enable you to have a great experience here.

We prefer a stay of 1 - 2 weeks. Check out our reviews to make sure we're ok.

Take care and happy travelling.
