Are you able to help with some painting?
We are on a 10 acre block with two dogs and two cats a swimming pool and a spa pool (hot tub). We enjoying cooking and will feed you well (we eat most things). It is better if you have transport as we are 5 mins drive to Mangawhai village and 8 mins to the beach and there is no public transport.
Be sure to read our reviews.
We are looking for 2 people over the age of 23, preferably who have transport, who are practical and can cope with outside work who are prepared to do 4 hours of work a day for a week.
We have lots of painting to do, but need someone who is neat and tidy and has had experience with painting. If the weather is not great, then being able to do inside cleaning jobs or gardening etc would be great.
We have firewood to gather and split, gardening to do and maybe some gravel to spread. Just helping out where it is needed. Some cleaning and water blasting may also be an option. The work is varied. Once you have done your work then go off and enjoy the beach, Mangawahai, relax in the caravan with a book or WIFI.
Enjoy a typical Kiwi family!
Having initiative is really important to us and helping with dishes and odd jobs is appreciated.
We always enjoy our time with our helpxers - see our reviews but our accommodation is basic so if you want luxury, please don`t come and stay with us but if you want a fun hard working kiwi family and are happy to be part of that we would love to hear from you.
Mangawhai is a beautiful coastal town in Northland, an hour north of Auckland with lots to do - the lovely clifftop walk, Bennetts Chocolate Factory and beautiful surf beaches.
We ask that you do 4 hours a day in return for food and accommodation. We live very busy lives so it is nice if there are 2 of you so you can work together and then go off and enjoy Mangawhai.
Just helping without being asked and having initiative is appreciated especially with dishes, cooking and cleaning.
