Hi
We live in a small log house on an 8 acre flat lifestyle block on which we run a small glamping business. We are in the heart of rural Canterbury surrounded by farms growing mainly sheep and wheat.
Situated 40 minutes inland from Timaru and 40 minutes from Lake Tekapo we have the best of both worlds. Depending upon which direction you go, you could enjoy a day shopping or at the beach, or you can put on your hiking boots and head to Tekapo/Mount Cook National park.
We are a family of five, my wife is a high school teacher and I am a stonemason (both in our late forties). We have three children 8(boy),9(girl) and 13(boy). We have a couple of friendly cats and a few sheep.
Being a little remote means that cell phone coverage is almost non existent, however, you would have full use of the internet during the day (we like to stream tv in the evenings sometimes).
The nearest town/shops are 20 minutes away.
We are looking for a friendly type of person to check in guests in the afternoon and then to change bedding, tidy and clean the tent and facilities in the morning.
There is only one tent at the moment so this would only take 1-2 hours.
There is also a little gardening if interested or just a little help around the house. An ability to cook would be an advantage.
You would have your own small room and shared (with the family) bathroom with shower and bath.
Most weekends are yours and we could sometimes loan you a vehicle.
We are looking for around four hours a day in return for full board but are flexible.
This is a no smoking household so no smokers please.
