We have 4ha land, sheep, chickens, a dog, large gardens, two busy toddlers and a big, 150 year old homestead to look after, so many skills needed here.

We grow most of our own food and run a B&B, so needless to say life is very busy. For now we are looking for a couple (one queen bed), one to help with outside work and one to help getting the house ready before BnB starts again very soon. Outside work includes digging, firewood, farm maintenance, mowing, some gardening etc. House work will include a general spring clean, washing windows, doing laundry, some cooking if you can.

We provide 3 meals a day (non vegetarian) and accomodation in exchange for 5 hours work a day. Sometimes you can do a full day, and take the next day off if you would like to go and do something in Akaroa, or visit the beautiful bays around here.

Strictly no smokers please.

We are across the harbour from the lovely tourist hotspot Akaroa. (20 minute's drive). Many things to do there, like dolphin tours, fishing, kayaking, also shops, coffee shops, restaurants etc. We are also walking distance from a lovely calm swim beach, Tikao bay, and right next to the well known alpaca farm for farm tours.

Good phone reception at our property and you can use our wifi. Internet access is limited to emails, facebook etc. No downloading as we have limited gigs. Our house is old, big and rich with history. Definately the oldest house in the area! It is very cosy and warm and well insulated, so even on cold nights you will be comfortable. We heat the house with two (or sometimes 3) fires, so no nasty dry skin from heatpumps etc. Come and step back in time and enjoy the luxury of gorgeous fires, beautiful stars and lots of space, good food, peace and quiet......

We are a well travelled, relaxed, friendly couple and look forward to spending time with fellow travellers.
