***We are looking for one or two people from about 7th September who can help chopping and stacking the wood from 4 trees we had removed lately. Also we need help with the spring clean in our garden: waterblasting decks and terraces, painting fences, weeding, washing windows, some veggie planting, etc***
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. Also the rugby season 2017/2018 is about to start and you could possibly go and see a Manawatu Turbos game. 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 up 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... :-)
