We are Nigel and Sue-semi-retired and have been living here for 9 years. This has been our holiday house for over 20 years. Our house is in a secluded bay with water access only into Picton, our nearest town, just 15mins away. Native wood pigeons, tuis and bellbirds are just some of the wonderful birds living in the native bush which surrounds us. We encourage the health and vigour of our native trees by removing gorse and wilding pines. We have our own jetty and beach where it is safe to swim and kayak in the calm inland waterways(similar to fiords)- we are frequently visited by dolphins. Double Cove is a fishing reserve but it is possible to fish beyond the edge of the bay only 100 metres away. We enjoy bushwalking with our 9 year old labrador, Fraser and have a vege garden. We would very much like to have some help with track clearing, gardening, wood collecting and general outside and inside work. We like helpers at all times of year weather permitting, but not between Dec and Feb as we have paying guests staying over the summer. The map shows where we live - you must pan southwest from the first picture. Double Cove is between Lochmara Bay and Torea Bay in Queen Charlotte Sound, but the name is not mentioned. We are on the right side of the cove.
