We have a 9 unit motel and holiday park which accommodates campervans/tents/and buses.We can offer a self contained motel room or an on site caravan,free wifi,and meals in exchange for general cleaning duties/maintenanace work and painting.Would love to have someone for a long term,but of course we welcome any proposals.Putaruru is close to "everywhere" and though not essential,having your own vehicle will allow you to enjoy so much more of what the Waikato has to offer.Rotorua,Taupo,Mt Maunganui and Waitomo caves are all within an hours driving.Locally the famous "Blue springs",Hobbitton and Waikato river walks feature and we will be able to arrange transport to some places if you do not have a vehicle. We are both maori and I think we can provide other perceptions and cultural perspectives to your visit.
