LOOKING FOR A HORSEY, CHILD FRIENDLY, GARDENING COUPLE from 24 OCT 2017 onwards to become part of our family. We really need a clone of ourselves to give a hand around the property & help us in all areas. Work is interesting and varied. Must have experience handling horses. Riding not necessary. Accommodation in your own self contained cottage on the beach. Heaps of fun activities to do right on our doorstep - fishing, surfing, kayaking, swimming, long beach walks etc. See our feedback. Long term stays preferred. i.e. 3wks +

We are a fun family in our early 40ís & have a 7yr son, 5yr daughter, large dog, 2 cats, horse, 2 ponies, 3 pigs, 5 goats, pheasant, guinea fowl, lots of ducks & a bearded dragon.

We live on a 16acre property right on a beach in the Awatere Valley, 30min south of Blenheim. Help is mostly needed with our general everyday survival! Horses, household tasks, children, animals, laundry, gardens...

Accommodation is in a lovely self-contained cottage on a large beach. Food will be provided and you cook for yourself. Activities on the property include long beach walks, swimming, fishing, white baiting and surfing.

The ideal couple will be non-smokers who are 22yrs or older. MUST have experience handling horses. Also be capable of driving a manual 4WD vehicle for garden work and has experience using garden equipment such as weed eaters (strimmers) and lawn mowers. Childcare experience also a benefit. Photo on your profile is required & references preferred.

It would be preferable if you have your own transport but not essential. It would be a help if you can get yourself to either Blenheim or Seddon where we can pick you up. Minimum stay 2 weeks but we prefer longer term stays if possible. Couples or two friends preferable over single travellers.
