We are looking for a helper between now and early December, mostly for our garden and driveway. Most of the hard work is done for this year, we just need help finishing a few minor projects and then keeping on top of the weeding, light housework and getting the veggie patch going, weeding and cleaning the area and then planting some seedlings. We are a Kiwi-German-Italian family of 4 and two original Kiwi cats at the very edge of Palmerston North overlooking the Manawatu River. Palmerston North is halfway between Wellington and the Central Plateau Volcanos (Tongariro), and can be easily reached by Intercity Bus or Naked/Mana Bus. We have a pretty luxurious downstairs bedroom with a comfortable double bed and its very own modern en-suite bathroom. The area is great for running, walking and cycling along the river just behind our garden fence, or to enjoy the benefits of a larger town, eg cinema, theatre, restaurants, shopping etc. There are also lots of markets, concerts, festivals etc going on during the summer. We have bikes you could borrow and there is a bus stop only about 5 min walk away that will take you straight into the city centre about 5km away. There is some amazing tramping in the area, in the Manawatu Gorge and the Tararuas to name but two areas. We also offer free wifi. We expect 3-4 hours work per day in return for accommodation and full board. Our homestay is probably suitable for shorter term stays of up to a week or two, but this is negotiable. We look forward to meeting new friends from all over the world! Those who work "hard" may even be rewarded with Hubby's national award winning home brewed beer... :-) Please let me know by text message or whatsapp that you sent me an email since I seem to have problems receiving email notifications from helpx. Number: 021-02908 275. Thanks!
