I live on a suburban property in Island Bay (not a farm), 15 mins drive (25mins bike ride) from downtown Wellington, 2 mins drive (3 mins bike), from beautiful Island Bay beach. We live 3 mins walk from the village, where there is a supermarket, library, cinema etc. We are on the main bus route (Number 1 bus goes to town every 12 mins).

I live with my 14-year-old son and 2 kiwi flat mates I'd love to have you come and stay.
Ideally, people would arrive Thursday and stay until Tuesday. I often like a quieter house during the week so we can focus on homework etc.

I work full time so people would need to be independent and prepared to do their own thing.
Work is likely to be weeding and cleaning, mowing lawns, moving firewood, pruning berry bushes, painting the house etc.

Work is for 2 hours a day every day in exchange for accommodation, electricity and wifi etc. (Happy for people to double up on the work and then have a free day). Please provide your own food, though I'm friendly and enjoy sharing meals with people when it suits both of us. No smoking on the property, please.

I have 2 kayaks which you are welcome to use, and possibly a bike.

I am a midwifery researcher by trade. My son (generally not here on weekends) and I love to go mountain biking, play board games by the fire in winter, jump on the tramp, eat good food in the sunshine on the deck, pick wild food and be silly. Come join us!

My phone number is 022 434 6624, feel free to text/call.
