We run a BnB Lodge in Queenstown and have two small kids. We re looking for new helpers from end of August onwards. Ideally we would like the same person(s) for at least a month at this stage or for the remainder of the winter season - starting with a week to see how we all get on and longer if we are a good fit for each other. We need help with anything and everything (gardening, cleaning, making up the B&B bedrooms, checking in guests, washing clothes, cleaning windows watering plants, mopping floors, hoovering & ironing , some babysitting maybe some cooking etc). A good standard of English is helpful and someone who has done cleaning in the past would be good. Looking for someone who is independent happy with to slot in but who likes their own company as well and who is proactive, flexible happy to adapt with a can do attitude who is helpful and happy to pitch in with whatever needs doing. Would prefer a single girl as our kids seem more comfortable with that but would consider a couple or two friends.

We are now providing accommodation (in our brand new 2017 German Dethleff caravan with all mod cons including toilet electricity heating and fridge etc) plus 3 meals in exchange for 5 hours help per person per night stayed with 1 day off in 7days. If you are staying long term we can review the hours. These may be in the morning or afternoon or a few hours either side depending on when I have guests. If you had an evening job that started after 6pm we could be a good fit for you as well.

If you want an idea of (BUT NOT our exact caravan!!!) see the picture attached and the layout at https://www.uwcaravan.nl/dethleffs-cgo-495-qsk.html

We are very close to Queenstown but set in a peaceful rural setting just 5 mins DRIVE out of town - with sheep on the property as well. No car available for HelpX but we can off and on drop you in and out of town when we are passing through and there is a bus stop 10 minutes around the corner with hourly buses into town. Sorry we are very strict and don't take any smokers. Also if you want to work in exchange for accom and meals I'm afraid we only offer the meals we cook for the family so cannot cater to or provide any special food for dietary needs. We try to be flexible with hours when we can. Thanks Jennie and Matt
