Beautiful lifestyle property set in the Moutere Valley, 10 mins from Motueka township and 1/2 hr drive from the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park. Mountain vistas, sunny deck and cosy home.
The main use of the property is for 4 resident horses and re-hab horses that come to stay for treatment. I have 3 black cats, 8 chickens, 1 dove and a very energetic, loving Collie X dog who is a rescue girl. Am wanting either a couple or two females or single female help, horse experience would be fabulous however not necessary.
I am situated 10 mins from the Motueka township which offers cinema, art cinema (which I love), great shopping, Sunday market and only 1/2 hr from the beautiful Abel Tasman National park, which offers kayaking, tramping, beautiful beaches, lovely cafes etc. I am happy to pick you up from Motueka if you have no transport. I have two pushbikes here to use.
Main areas for help on the property include tending to the needs of the horses. ie feeding, rugging, grooming, mucking out paddocks. Gardening maintenance, pruning, weeding and mowing lawns. Help with wood duties for the log fire ie stacking wood in the shed and some splitting of logs. Cleaning out Chicken Coops. General housekeeping.
I live by myself on my property and often find it a challenge to tend to all the chores and earn a living. I usually have overseas people stay here over the fruit picking season and have met some lovely people many whom have become my friends. I offer one room with a double bed and shared facilities in the house, free internet and power and am happy to provide breakfast and lunch however a contribution to shared evening meals would be wonderful, this in exchange for 5 hours work
per day. Sunday is your day to do whatever you would like.

My profession is Sports Massage Therapist for horses and people. I attend Hatha Yoga in a class every week and practice on a daily basis. I live a quiet life with strong spiritual values. I train and work/rehab my horses with classical equitation . They are my life and my loves. Non-smokers are preferred, or outside smokers. Love good healthy food and lots of laughter :) Namaste :)
