We are looking for a person or a couple from Early August through to late September.
we are going away and are looking for someone to stay over that time - we would have 3 chinese students (they are lovely and their english is good) here at the time and the jobs would be to grocery shop and cook an evening meal for these three student (they go to Tech 4 days a week and they get their own breakfast and lunches). We need someone who can stay the whole time as we are going to be out of the country.
Apart from cooking for three +yourselves and grocery shopping there would be a little light housework and also picking up some cafe scraps each day in town and feeding the pigs (two very friendly spoilt Kunekune sows). You would also need to be comfortable using an enclosed log fire for heating. We would set up an account with a debit card so that you can shop and we would make sure that you left with more money than you arrived with. You can also use our car if you wish - you would need to be able to drive in NZ. May suit a couple who want a six week break from travelling and some extra funds at the end of it.
