Hello Travellers! We are looking for one or two helpers for a week to 10 days from next week (29. October) to help us get our house and garden ready for summer. The work will involve water blasting, wooden deck cleaning and oiling, outdoor painting and general garden maintenance. We will actually be driving south from Rotorua, via Taupo and Waiouru back to Palmerston North along State Highway 1 on Monday, 28.10., so if you are travelling that way to get to us, we can give you a free lift. We are a Kiwi-German-Italian family of 4 and two original Kiwi cats at the very edge of Palmerston North overlooking the Manawatu River. Palmerston North is halfway between Wellington and the Central Plateau Volcanos (Tongariro), and can also be easily reached by Intercity Bus. We have a pretty luxurious downstairs bedroom with a comfortable double bed and its very own modern en-suite bathroom. The area is great for running, walking and cycling along the river just behind our garden fence, or to enjoy the benefits of a larger town, eg cinema, theatre, restaurants, shopping etc. We have bikes you could borrow and there is a bus stop only about 5 min walk away that will take you straight into the city centre about 5km away. There is some amazing tramping in the area, in the Manawatu Gorge and the Tararuas to name but two areas. We also offer free wifi. We expect 3-4 hours work per day in return for accommodation and full board. We look forward to meeting new friends from all over the world! Those who work "hard" may even be rewarded with Hubby's national award winning home brewed beer... :-) Iím sorry but we can not cater for vegans.
