We offer a few days in Wellington (typically no more than 4). Our house is easy walking distance to Parliament, the Cuba Street fountain, the Cuba night market, Te Papa Museum, Oriental Bay etc

Looking to host two experienced helpers over Friday night to Monday morning inclusive - during October (not NZ long holiday weekend).

You need to be fit plus you need to be self starters who can work alone.

Current work:

Inside work :
1. Some carpet upstairs needs to be ripped up and taken to the tip
2. Clearing out a junk room
3. The veneer kitchen cupboards also need to be sanded
4. The inside windows need cleaning
5. Housework

Other work:
(if fine)
- Cleaning windows outside
- The garden always needs work if it is fine
- Wirebrushing the deck
- Oiling the small deck - it's just painting
- Removing weeds
- Washing and vacuuming the car.

Our two small dogs, Toby and Felix enjoy walks to the Botanical Gardens and the park as well.

We have lived in this villa by Tinakori Hill (25 minutes walk to the centre of the City, 10 minutes walk from the railway station) for 30 years.

We typically eat fish/vegetarian food.

Typically you will be ready to start work at 8.00 am and can have some of the afternoon off for checking out this wonderful city.

We offer three meals (help yourself to breakfast and lunch) and your own bedroom with a comfortable bed. Shared bathroom and shared internet; shared laundry facilities. No smokers please.

Will collect you and drop you off to any other point in Wellington if before 8.30am on Monday morning.

Note that days and hours will be set out on a case by case basis, depending on your arrival time and confirmed prior to your arrival. Typically, we seek 5 hours work, assistance with the dishes plus walking our dogs (2x a day) in exchange for every 24 hour period that we host you.

Also typically we give you a quick drive around the city showing you the views and sculptures and telling you stories about Wellington

Thanks a million
