HELP REQUIRED - 26 DECEMBER UNTIL 8 JANUARY 2018.
IT IS OUR BUSY SEASON WITH OUR LARGE VEGETABLE GARDENS NEEDING DAILY WORK AND HELP WITH OUR HORSES.
OUR MARRIED DAUGHTER, CARA, AND HER HUSBAND, JEREMY, ARE MOVING FROM THEIR APARTMENT ON OUR PROPERTY TO THEIR OWN HOUSE IN A NEARBY VILLAGE, AND WE WILL NEED HELP WITH HELPING THEM MOVING EVERYTHING TO THE NEW HOUSE.
We have a Lifestyle property in Whitford, in South Auckland, with equestrian horse facilities and large vegetable gardens.
20 mins drive to Central Auckland.
The accommodation is in a double room in the house or a lovely converted stable room outside.
The work will mainly be outdoors on the property, helping with feeding horses and working on the large vegetable gardens.
My husband and I live here. Our married daughter (Cara, 30) and husband Jeremy (29) also live on the property in an apartment attached to the main house with a gorgeous baby girl, Isla. We like some help with looking after Isla as Cara has broken her arm. Cara also needs help with mucking out and feeding horses etc.
- General outside gardening work, especially in the vegetable garden.
- Animals, dog - daily walking & having fun with gorgeous 2 year old chocolate labrador. Feeding cats & chickens.
- Horses - helping feed & muck out etc.
- Helping with cooking meals and generally helping with everything that needs to be done.
It is preferable to have a car. Bus transport is from the local village every 1hr 30mins. We are happy to take you to the nearest town centres, which are a 10 minute drive away, you can then take the train directly to the centre of Auckland.
There are nice beaches and country walks & cycling in area.
If you are at the end of your trip and leaving the country, we are close to the airport and we are happy to take you to the airport.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Many thanks Sally
