Send a message if we sound like what you are looking for. We are not looking for particular date/time frame so hopefully we could make it work and suit to you also.
We are looking for help with day to day tasks around house and garden.
Over the next few months we are looking foe help with
* preparing painting/wallpapering bedrooms
* some gardening

We do not require you to work on the farm with stock although you will get plenty of opportunity to experience farm life. Animals are everywhere and a big part of our life.
If you have expertise in a particular area please tell us we always have projects on the go and maybe you will be well suited to what we need done but also if you are interested experience isn't essential a good positive attitude and work ethic is what we are looking for.
We are a family of four, a two year old and a baby. We live in an amazing part of the country, plenty to see and do in the Catlin's area, walking, wildlife and the sea on our doorstep.
We involve you in our life as much as possible and we have many memorable times with helpers in the past.
You are not expected to look after our children although if we had the right helper some child minding opportunities may be discussed.
You MUST have your own vehicle as we want you to get out and about and make the most of the amazing place we live in.
We are located in the Catlin's a 20 minutes drive from Owaka, 25 minutes drive from Balclutha, with fishing, tramping, surfing all very close. Although not to far from civilisation we live in a remote area. We do not have cellphone reception at house (10 mins down the road we do).
When you message us please confirm you have your own vehicle and tell us your background and what you have experience in.
Please note that helpers in the past had their own accommodation ( talked about in reviews) this is now unavailable you will be have your own bedroom but be sharing the house with us.
