We are a busy household with a bit of a chaotic lifestyle at times but are very friendly and flexible. We are an older couple with adult children who also live on our property with their baby. My husband who is retired has a physical disability which means he can't do a lot of physical tasks so we really appreciate help around our place. Our small farmlet has cats, chickens, horses and a vegetable garden. We require four hours help daily per person with general maintenance around the place including gathering,splitting and stacking firewood (chainsawing as well if you can) gardening/weeding, caring for animals, working with horses (if you have experience), painting and household chores. We are fine if you want to work one full day and spend another day exploring our beautiful coastal area. Our home is modest but comfortable, situated on the west coast of Auckland in the very scenic Waitakere ranges. All food and meals are provided but we appreciate help in the kitchen and are very happy to share cooking if you like making meals or baking. There are two bedrooms available, one with a queen-size bed and one smaller bedroom with a king single bed. They are in the upstairs part of our house with a separate bathroom/shower. We ask people to please only do audio skyping and not download movies or upload heaps of photos sorry as we don't have unlimited wifi access. There is no public transport where we live but we can pick people up from the train or bus station in Henderson. Lots of nice walks for hiking and of course our glorious west coast beaches Karekare and Piha nearby. We currently only have availability for Helpx people to stay from mid-May onwards.
