We are a genuine kiwi family, Andrew, Jayne, Georgie (18mths old) & a new baby arriving in October. We are looking for a nanny/child minder,
cleaner,cook, housekeeper, gardener type person to come & stay with us for a few months this summer.

We are located approx one hours drive from Queenstown, Te Anau & Invercargill. So it is close to go see some wonderful tourist sights like Milford Sounds, bungy jumping in Queenstown, etc. We run a horse business on the large farm where we livexpect & work, so we have horses (obviously), many many sheep, lots of cows, 9 dogs, 2 cats and hensee. We can offer true kiwi style fun & living & we enjoy meeting people from all over the world!

My horse business involves, breaking/starting young horses for riding, training sporthorses for (showjumping & dressage), kids pony camps, horsemanship, mustering, handling young stock. We also have a small breeding program running with our beautiful big black stallion, so this spring we have 2 baby foals due!

I require a helper to mainly babysit our wee girl, but also to perform some cleaning & house chores, some cooking, gardening, painting & there is also the opportunity to assist with the horses a small amount too if you would like - but you MUST be an experienced capable rider with knowledge of handling & caring for young horses. In return for your help babysitting etc for between 4-6 hours a day for 4-5 days per week - We can offer you horse riding & life on a large farm with plenty of animals & things to see & do.

The living arrangements are in either a clean, private caravan, so you are separate from the house or alternatively in the house with us. Linen is provided, internet is available & 3 meals a day are provided in exchange for your work, with weekends mostly free. It is probably best to have your own transport or willing to use the bus system to get out & about to the various close tourist attractions.

You must be friendly, hard working, willing to help & speak a reasonable amount of English.
