We are a fun female kiwi married couple living in paradise with 7 dogs and 2 miniature horses. We are looking for cool people to homestay/home Help. We have availability immediately :-D

We are 38 and 41. We enjoy a wide range of activities including bushwalks, boating, art, cycling, playing board games, video games and much more. One of us smokes green daily for migraine/arthritis relief and one of us is a cigerette smoker. We smoke inside sometimes ( not where your room is ). Sharyn is a dog groomer and Jasmine stays at home mostly with chronic illness but on good days does voluntary work. We are young at heart, crazy in a good way and love cooking and many interests.

Our 7 dogs are Chihuahua, Griffon/Minpin and Chipins. They are all friendly and so much fun, some just take a little bit to warm up to you. Being a dog lover is absolutely essential :-) If you are good at photography then that would be a bonus if you can take good pictures of the dogs as they all have a group Instagram account hehe :-D

Our home is a small social 3 bedroom home. It is a lifestyle property with a few paddocks and a beautiful wetlands area, reminds me a bit of Africa! There is so much bird life around! There are many beautiful nature walks and stunning beaches nearby. Iím happy to show you during your off time and maybe even if we do some dog walks as part of your hours as we are cool like that :-P . We are living in this smaller dwelling while we design our dream home. So if you have any architecture and or interior design background we like to hear all advice as this is going to be a big step! :-D

The sleeping situation is a private room with double bed. Keeping your room tidy is a must and not to be done during working hours.

On that note... The winter work situation is 3 hours work a day. Once your 3 hours are completed then you can do as you please the rest of the day. 5 days on, then a day off and so on. There would be an option to work additional hours in order to have additional day/s off by negotiation. If you stay longer term. The 2nd week allows a 2nd day off so then onwards is 4 days on, 2 days off. The 3rd week allows 3 days off thereafter :-). On your day off, you provide your own food. If you want food then you just need to do the dog feeding and dishes :-).

In exchange for basic food, cute lil lap warming creatures, accommodation and broadband internet would be a range of odd jobs such as: dog walking, dog grooming, cleaning dog deposits, dog area cleaning, sometimes dog minding when we go away, training sessions, looking after the horses, cleaning up horse deposits, house cleaning,car grooming, helping maintain social media sites, gardening, lawn mowing, home renovations inside and or out. Most of the work however is usually gardening/weeding outside and the care of the dogs. So must be willing to work outside for hours even when raining heavily ( have appropriate clothes ). It does rain a lot, so must be okay with that! Please when you request confirm that you understand this :)

Potential helpers would be aged between 18 and 40, be tidy and social. It would be a major bonus if you like playing boardgames, videogames, smoking some green, going on adventures and so forth :-)

We live in a beautiful town called Warkworth and are also very close to Matakana. It is 40 mins drive north of Aucklandís CBD. We are happy to come pick you up and drop you off if you can contribute to gas which isnít too much.

There is off street safe parking.

We only consider requests if you speak good to fluent English and with a full filled out profile and clear photographs of who you are. Or a detailed email to us describing who you are, what experiences you have had and why you are interested to help at our place. If you are new to Help X that is okay but we just need to chat a bit by telephone first. :-D

Right, I think that covers a lot!!!!!

We look forward to hearing from you, any questions, just ask. Jasmine and Sharyn :) #shazzmine
