Last Updated: September 9, 2018

We have an opening for a easy going person end of September 2018, with tasks of child minding, spring cleaning and various tasks.

What works well is a flexible person who can roll with our sometimes busy schedule but also enjoy our relaxing times together, such as fishing and joining in with our fun such as visiting Jackson Bay. You are welcome to do your own thing as well, lots of walks close by and stunning nature.

About Us: We are a laid back couple with a passion for our area of NZ and for living life. The West Coast is a nature lover and photography dream. We live in a small village called Hannahs Clearing half way between the iconic Jackson Bay and the township of Haast.

We live right beside the Tasman sea, which is just a few minutes walk from the house. We have the Hector Dolphins living in our area and massive bird and wild life.

Our business is a Jet Boat Safari and we take Tourists from all over the world on a stunning back country river in the UNESCO World Heritage Park. We are a family owned business and along with our 3 year daughter we enjoy the genuine lifestyle that the West Coast offers us. We live in a small village with no shops or restaurants and live in a way that is sustainable, you will not see food cooked out of a packet here.

We offer you accomodation in our campervan which provides you good quiet in a comfortable queen size bed, and personal area that you can lock. You have your own space and free internet up to 1GB a day and have use of a seperate toilet and share bathroom & you are welcome in our house.

You can borrow our bicylce if you like to explore by 2 wheels. We also offer for you to go on our NZ re-owned jet boat safari if we have one running and use our local knowledge about what to do and see in our area.

In return we would like help with our daily household tasks, looking after our fun loving daugter and property maintenance all which are vastly varied and can be suited to the person.

Ideally we would like 4 hours of help a day in exchange for comfortable sleep and plenty of good food. This can sometimes be a day of work followed by a day off. This is not the place for the late night party crowd or the lazy sleeper inners, nor the clock watchers! People who can take the initiative have a great advantage here.

Happy to pick up and drop off to the main bus stop on the highway (23 km from us) and for short or long term visiting (1 week minimum stays preferred).

One word about the West Coast of NZ, many people discount it as not being the 'in' place to go but it is an incredible place, well worth a stop on your way to the busier places such as Queenstown; We are 2 hours from Franz Josef, 2 hours from Wanaka and 3 hours from Queenstown.

You can also use our network of hosts. Any questions, just ask!
