Last Updated: July 17, 2019

I offer a majestic view and three meals per day including home made bread, pesto and muesliv; with soup, fish and chips, roast chook, "stu"shimi and pizza burgers etc for dinner.

In exchange I ask for 3hrs per day (mornings). You do not need to help out on the day of your arrival or the day you leave (except to make the bed etc).

Behind my place is the mighty Coromandel Range so you can go walkies up the creek into the bush. Maybe use windsurfer boards as kayaks and just paddle around. Possibly cycle 4km to Waiomu and walk 1hr to the Kauri Grove. Or, try to catch something from the beach: maybe a massive stingray! Or just chill with the view.

At present jobs include: cleaning and domestics; painting preparation including timber repairs, filling and painting; chainsawing; gardening; etc.
