We live in a stunning old converted church in a small, quiet, rural village one hour drive from Auckland, Hamilton and Tauranga. I've just come back home from 10 years the living away in the city and there is a fair bit of delayed maintenance to do.
We offer shared loft accommodation in mezzanine offering both single and queen beds. This is in exchange for 2.5 hours work a day.
Accommodation includes breakfast but no lunch and dinner sorry. You will also have access to the kitchen, including a guest fridge, to self-cater other meals as long as you clean up afterwards.
Facilities include unlimited wifi, a large flat screen TV with surround sound, a huge collection of movies, BBQ, Outdoor dining. We have a large flower/vege garden. We share our home with pet pekin ducks (un-named), two cats (Zora and Maggie), and one rabbit (Archie).
We are after people who can help with:
-Gardening, tree maintenance and firewood.
-Carpentry and replacing rotten weatherboards
-Painting and paint prep
-Spouting and roof repairs
-General housework and cleaning.
As we are in the country you will really need a car to stay with us. It's a good central location. Local Attractions include:
-Miranda Bird Sanctuary
-Miranda Hot Pools
-Hauraki Golf CLub
-Hauraki Rail Trail
-Ngatea Water Gardens
-the Karangahake Gorge and Victoria Battery site
-Historic Maritime Park in Paeroa
-one hour drive to Hobbiton.
