We have a nice spacious new home on 2.5 acres that we have been building ourselves over the last few years. We are looking for help with childcare and general household tasks. We will provide accommodation, your own large room, wifi and a nice space to chill and watch some Netflix. Happy to negotiate how many hours etc. There is a surf beach just down the road and a bus stop into Christchurch 100 meters away. We have bikes you can use also. Lots of places to head away for day visits too. We are a family of four and a very friendly dog. We have a 2.5 year old and a very fresh little babe who is only a couple of months old.

We would be keen to hear from people with childcare experience who are looking for a slightly longer stay but will consider anything from 10days +

We are a well travelled family used to International visitors. We have a beautiful sheep & beef farm which we work full time. We have flat, rolling .and hilly country with mountain and sea views. We farm two properties and there is always plenty to do! We also have several quality horses used for smaller competitions and hunting. For a keen person there will be many opportunities to ride, if they are up to it. There is not time to teach people to ride as we are a very busy family, so please do NOT think you can learn to ride here.The riding is generally not included as work, rather a privilege. Riding around our beautiful hill farm is regularly available for the right riders. We take the horses to the beach sometimes also,for experienced riders which is a special spot.
General help with the horses, garden, farm or housework and cooking. We welcome people who love to cook! No two days are the same! Some days may be full days work and then a free day or more to relax or look around ... more inside

We don't have any vacancies until July at least. We live about ten minutes from Cheviot and enjoy a lovely setting in the country, surrounded by farmland. There's a big garden, and the house is very comfortable, with good wifi too.

There is a general mix of work available. There is a bit of gardening, and housework, and looking after the animals. There's loads of other general assistance needed around the place so I am sure we could find a job you would like!

We also have some house sitting duties coming up in September.

Ideally we would like someone with some horse experience. While they are quiet, they are not for beginners. The donkeys enjoy going out for a walk on the lead too.

We live about ten minutes drive from the coast (Gore Bay, a great surfing spot). We've got 2 lovely house dogs, 1 retired sheep dog, 2 horses, 2 donkeys, 2 kunekune pigs, pet sheep (5) and 4 cats.

I work from home, and Bryan runs Harris Meats, which is located on next door. If you d... more inside
