Beautiful piece of paradise with views across the valley & a glimpse of the ocean. Peaceful tranquility with heaps of bird life.
A near new, comfortable home with lots of land for developing - a blank canvas waiting for help to paint it. It is very much a work in progress! My vision for my property is the setting up of an organic & sustainable oasis.

I am a Christian & would appreciate someone with similar values. The ginger cat in the photo recently passed away, so at present I have no animals to care for. I have hosted many nationalities over the years.

I am looking for a CONSCIENTIOUS, RESPONSIBLE, WILLING helper that has a 'CAN DO ATTITUDE', use their INITIATIVE, TAKE PRIDE IN THEIR WORK & are prepared to work up to FOUR to FIVE HOURS A DAY. You need to be fit & strong as the land is quite hilly (& have good supportive footwear). The length of stay would be approximately 10 days.

In return you will be made to feel welcome & I will provide 3 meals a day & good, comfortable accommodation.

My home & property is SMOKE, ALCOHOL & SWEARING FREE.

The tasks (jobs) that I need help with are varied & range from weeding, preparing garden sites, planting, (remember I said that the land is hilly, so the gardens are on quite steep banks - not flat!!!) painting, splitting & collecting firewood. If you enjoy cooking & would like to prepare meals, that would be an added bonus.

As much as possible I live simply, sustainably & eat wholesome nourishing food. I am a meat eater but can cater for a vegetarian.

My home is in the country, away from the hustle & bustle (a 7 minute drive to Katikati township), so prefer (but not imperative) helpers to have their own transport, so that you can get out & explore in the afternoons. It is a 5 minute walk away from a beautiful swimming hole - Katikati's best kept secret! It is 12-15 minutes by car from Waihi Beach & the Athenree hot pools. The Hauraki Rail Trail is not far away either plus there is heaps more to do and explore in the beautiful Bay of Plenty.

So if you think that you 'fit the job description' & have an easy going, pleasant personality, please apply.
