Hi there,

We are situated in the Taranaki Village of Inglewood.

Please inquire about vacancies from 5 May 2017 as the rooms will be ready by then.

We Sonny & Birgit have a house in Inglewood, Taranaki. It is not a farm! Helpers will assist with gardening, weeding, landscaping, carpentry, painting, food preparation, cooking, cleaning, tidying & housework. Our house is a bit chaotic downstairs as renovation & building work is underway. You will be staying upstairs so we need YOUR help to keep it clean and tidy! Work hours depend on what is needed for you to do, so you must be flexible, but you will work an average of four hours a day.

We can arrange and pay for an uber to collect/deliver you to/from Airport or Bus Depot in New Plymouth if no one is available to pick you up. You will be rewarded with good food which you will help prepare, a comfy bed and good company.

SMOKERS ok but no smoking inside house or balcony. Absolutely No drugs or excessive alcohol consumption allowed. This is NOT the place for the 'party crowd', pampered Princesses' or lazy layabouts!

We do not live at the house permanently. However, a 22 year young strapping kiwi dude name Tasi is the only permanent resident at Tuki Homestead. He will be your host and is a very keen diver, fisherman and hunter. He will no doubt introduce you all the kiwi delicacies like kina, paua, mussels etc if you are interested in trying them. If time permit may take you on a hunting expedition.

Inglewood's Population is about 3200 residents. The house is walking distance to the village centre where there are a couple of local pubs, Rugby club, public swimming pool shops, Bakery, Gas Station, Restaurants & Take away shops, Library etc etc. It is 15minuts drive to New Plymouth City and 15 - 20min drive to Stratford & from there 10 - 15 min to main car park on Mt Taranaki. So in winter, you could go for a ski in the morning and then head back towards the coast for surf - all in a day if you really wanted to!

If you are considering staying with us at any time in the future, please contact me as far in advance as you can with the dates of when you want to arrive and leave. I will then check for available vacancies and send you a longer letter about my home, work and family.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
Sonny and Birgit
