We live between two houses, one in Winton for Samsons work and one in Ohai which is our main property and where most of the help is needed. Ohai is a pretty little village originally a mining town surrounded by rolling sheep country with impressive views to the Takatimu mountains to the north, and the Longwoods too the west. It is well positioned on route from Milford and Te Anau if heading further south to Invercargill/Dunedin or the Catlins. We are about 40 mins from the beaches at Tuatapere or Riverton. Also the caves at Clifton and Lake Horoko. There is a heated swimming about 5 minutes walk from my home and a small pub about 10 mins drive. I shifted here from a lifestyle block in Glenorchy with my chooks, a couple of cats a horse and have added a couple of goats
My interests are painting, photography, gardening and cooking, my animals and living self-sufficiently. We offer comfortable accommodation and good food and enjoy meeting people from around the globe. I have been hosting backpackers for the last 20 yrs.
There is a variety of work helping with the gardens, caring for the animals and house renovations and maintenance. My horse always enjoys any attention.
I am also working full-time so looking for helpers to be a little independent and would enjoy making themselves at home keeping our animals company and helping keep everything in order while also helping with any projects as they come up. I work from home based in Winton but am on the road so you will not completely be left on your own. We also have things needed doing in Winton from time to time so is a good opportunity to see more of Southland.
