We are a newly opened Cellar door and Luxury Lodge in the heart of Matakana Coast wine country. We are looking for a couple to live in and be all round helpers. That could mean cleaning the Lodge, gardening, help setting the Lodge up for guests, working in the vineyard, serving wine in the cellar door, doing dishes after a function - basically helping out where the need is greatest on any one day.

But you really need to be a COUPLE (or two friends) and have a CAR. You don't need it for work - just to get yourselves about to sightsee.
Please don't contact us unless you have a CAR.

This is a 35 hectare established vineyard just a few minutes drive from Matakana Village. Matakana is a 45 minute drive north of Auckland city.

We need people who enjoy the outdoors, are quite physical and dont mind cleaning and maintenance work, are hospitality minded and have high standards. Most of all we need people who are trustworthy.

Although Matakana is rural, we are close enough to do a lot of sightseeing around a very beautiful part of New Zealand. Our helpers would need to have a vehicle and would probably be travelling around New Zealand. WE would need a commitment to stay at least 8 weeks. Matakana is close enough to Auckland city to do day trips, but also close to many east coast beaches, Kaipara, Wellsford, Whangarei etc.. It is an ideal place to base yourself to travel and see other parts of NZ an hour or two away on afternoon trips. Walking, biking and hitching however are not really an option as the rural roads are not conducive to any of the above.That is why you really need to be a couple, to keep each other company, and have a vehicle, to travel around. There is little public transport nearby. We are too rural.

This is in an exceptionally beautiful NZ vineyard setting only 5 minutes drive from 'Matakana Village' which is a tourist destination, and 5 minutes drive from Warkworth (which is the nearest town), and close to a whole lot of different beaches and regional parks.

Our helpers would be expected to work for 4 hours a day, 5 days a week. In exchange you would get free accommodation. The accommodation is basic but is in exchange for your work. It is in a shared building with 2 of our offices. You would have a bedroom, TV, free wireless internet, bathroom & and kitchen (shared with office staff) with microwave, small fridge and basic cooking facilities. You'd need to be clean/tidy and respectful of your space, and be happy to clean it before you leave.

We don't smoke, and do not want smokers to get in touch sorry!
