Hi to all, we are a family of four in the Pelorus Sounds, Marlborough. Our closest port is Havelock.
We run a 1700 acre sheep farm, with about 1800 Romney ewes and are boat access only.
We also have two houses for accommodation.
We are looking for some help over the next few months to prepare our houses for a very busy summer season, and help with a bit of gardening and maintenance.
There may be a bit of farm work and feeding animals, thrown in as well if anyones interested, but be prepared to get your hands dirty.
We would like either one person to stay with us, meals provided, or another option is for a couple/ friends to stay in our other house, and have meals provided, in return for around 4 hours help.
Because of our isolation we prefer someone with no serious health conditions or allergies.
No drugs, or smoking inside.
The rest of your stay is your own time, and you can either join in with what we are doing, or do your own thing.
We have lots of land to explore, kayaks etc, but because we are boat access only, night clubbing is not an option!
We are a family that likes hunting and fishing. feel free to join in.
Internet available.
We have generated power/alternative power. (Which is limited)
Our closest port is Havelock, which is where you catch the boat from.
Tuesdays are usually the best day to catch a boat out to us, sometimes Thursday can be arranged.
We like our people to come for a week to begin with, just to see how we all get on, but longer stays are available.
We like to get to know our helpers, and have a good laugh with them, so a great sense of humour is an absolute must!
Look forward to hearing from you!
