Hi, we live in beautiful Diamond Harbour, a seaside village about 30km from Christchurch. It's quiet and peaceful here and close to the local cafes. You can get into the city by ferry and bus, or drive around through the picturesque bays. The closest supermarket and pharmacy is in Lyttelton, but there is a convenience store 5 minutes walk from us.
We are looking for someone to help us out at times when there are big gardening and construction jobs around the house. You need to be happy to be left home alone for a lot of the time. We require 4 hours of help per day per person in exchange for full board including all meals. Duties will be mostly focused on specific projects in the garden or house eg building, digging, painting, weeding, planting. But you sometimes have to help by cooking the evening meal, some housework, feeding the dog, 2 cats and 1 chicken and taking our dog for a long walk. You need to be confident looking after the animals (& not allergic to them).
We love to live and eat healthy vegetarian meals, we like meals with lots of salads :-)
There are loads of walks in the area, and easy access to the beaches for swimming.
No smokers please.
***OUR NEXT BIG JOBS ARE 1. TO BUILD GARDEN TERRACES; 2. WEEDING AND TIDYING UP THE SECTION; AND 3. SPRING CLEANING IN THE HOUSE - YOU CAN CHOOSE :-)*** 5-7 DAYS STAY MAXIMUM.
