I'm 36 years old living with my folks who are in their 60's. We manage a 100 acre property with a large garden, some cattle and a conservation area of native bush.

I'm in need of some help with a range of jobs - but primarily heavy gardening, removal of weed-trees, and some building.

The reason I'm looking for help is because I damaged my tendons in both arms and they are still healing. I will work with you but will have to stick to lighter jobs.

If you don't mind hard work for short periods or getting dirty you will be fine - you don't need prior experience. However, anyone with any experience in gardening, building or carpentry would be particularly helpful.

Accommodation is in a private stone hut in the bush with solar lights and solar hot water. There is no conventional power plug but I can charge devices for you at the main house. There is an indoor fireplace and cooking will be done on a gas camping stove. It's back-to-basics living that would particularly suit someone wanting a nature experience or escaping the rat-race for a while.

30 mins drive away is a West coast surf beach. it's 15 mins drive to the nearest substantial town - I drive in at least twice a week. This is a rural area with no night life - suits people who enjoy nature. Auckland airport is 45mins drive away (in no traffic).


I'm happy to have people for short stays of a few days, and if you plan to stay longer than a week we will review after the end of the first week.

:) Emma.
