Rural atmosphere & so close to the Airport!

Builder? Electrician? Plumber? Do you have any of these type of skills? Are you looking for accommodation in Auckland? You could stay in a beautiful rural area but only 10-minutes from the Airport.

We are a young couple, with a 2 year-old child, living in Mangere, Auckland (see the photo). We live on a large suburban section in a quiet, rural setting; horses and cows grazing nearby, chickens crossing the road (literally!). Lots of open space with a few fruit trees, watercress growing in a little stream and very near the Manukau harbour.

We have a secondhand house located at the back of our property that we are renovating. We are looking for someone/people with some building skills (don't have to be an expert), or skills in electrical work, or plumbing, who would like to stay in our home and receive free board and food in exchange for helping to work on our building project.

While we are looking for people with the skills mentioned above (building/electrical/plumbing) there will also be some time where the work will be painting, cleaning, some landscaping such as moving plants, planting trees and so on.

We have a large room with a double air-bed. This could suit a single-person, a couple or a family (it is a large room that could accommodate a family). We can provide an extra mattress if you are two friends. Minimum stay of three days.

We are in a rural-setting but still close to the shops (traveling by car):
1-minute to the historic Otuataua Stonefields and Manukau harbour.
5-minutes to the Airport shopping centre.
5 minutes to the motorway.
6 minutes to Mangere Town Centre.
9-minutes to the Airport.
15-minutes to Manukau
25-minutes to central Auckland

Transport: NO PUBLIC TRANSPORT. There are no buses servicing our area. You can get a bus to Mangere Town Centre and we can, by arrangement, pick you up from there. And for our favourite helpers, we're happy to drop you at the Airport (if need be) at the end of your stay =)

Please note: We have two flatmates in our house - one female Barista and one male electrician. Both are very friendly and quiet.

We look forward to hosting you in our calm, beautiful home and environment.
