Not looking for anyone at the moment

We are renovating our house and developing gardens and a native walkway. So along with the daily chores and animal care there is always something that needs doing. lots of weeding!

We like helpers that are easy going, friendly and with some common sense. There are a few options, 4 - 5 hours work a day for accommodation and meals or 2 full days for accommodation only. We can negotiate?

I love doing all sorts of crafts, mosaics, sewing, woodwork and wearable art to name a few! Happy to do a project with you if your interested and time allows.
There is no public transport near where we live but I am happy to pick you up from Waikari or nearby. I am also in Christchurch at least once a week.

If you like watching tv or playing on a pc all day this place is not for you, we have limited internet access and NO cell phone coverage.

Accommodation is a self contained two bedroom cottage, separate from the main house, fully furnished with log burner and everything you need.

There are a couple of bikes you can use. Lots of books and games in the cottage too.

We provide all meals at the house but if you prefer to make your own breakfast at the cottage we are happy to provide you with some free range eggs.

There is a pool and a river you can splash about in. If you find this a bit cold the Hot pools are about 50 mins away.

We are in the Pyramid Valley a very pretty farming countryside, 1 1/2 hrs north of Christchurch. 20 mins inland from Amberly and the Waipara vineyards and 50 mins from Hanmer hot pools, hunting fishing and Kaikoura, whale watching not too far away. Lots of nice walks around the area and we are on part of the Hurunui cycle trail.

We have 4 dogs who love walks and swims in the river, 2 cats, sheep, chickens and dairy goats.
We have a 16 yr old foster child who is on the autism spectrum he likes to ask lots of questions and will want to know everything about your homeland :) and will surprise you with what he knows.

So if this sounds like you and you have some time to spare get in touch.(email)
