Hi there!!
If you're looking for two weeks level3 somewhere I have work for two people...
We have a small life style property in the sunny sunny Sth Wairarapa consisting of paddocks, gardens, fruit trees, and lawns etc...
The living spaces are very tranquil - spacious gardens and pool area - can be quite a bit to maintain sometimes.
There are a few animals here as well as many on surrounding farms.
The property has two dwellings, as well as an art studio, plus sheds and other farm buildings.
Help is always going to be very appreciated with the maintenance as well as the ongoing creation and construction of the garden areas etc.

The Wairarapa is situated just an hour north of Central Wellington and we are located 15 minutes from the wine region centre of Martinborough where some of NZ`s great wines are produced
There are many cafes, restaurants and vineyards
The property location is quiet and peaceful, located amongst farmland on the river with its own private swimming spots.
Generally the area is mostly farming and grape growing, the climate is hot and dry - a lot warmer than Wellington City, so there are plenty of great outdoor activities such as bush walking, kayaking, biking, fishing in the river or ocean (20mins away) as well as many sites and forest parks and coastline to explore.
There is a train connection into the City Centre that only takes an hour.

As a traveller, I make effort to enjoy the lifestyle here as much as possible between trips away.
I am open minded and very easy going, we like to have good food and good times - a nice country living lifestyle!
Helpx has been such a great way to meet people and share this space and the many projects - there has been so many fun times and friendships created - it is nice to be able to remember these times and the people who shared in them, and this somehow makes the property more special as it continues to grow.
I enjoy learning new skills as much as passing them on, it has been really a pleasure to have shared in this, so amazing to look around and see what has been achieved with the help of our guests.
I like to try and learn the new languages getting better at French and can easily teach the english back :))
The most positive part really tho - is just sharing this space, the meals, stories and all the times with new fun people while they are here exploring this special part of the world.

I hope we can add to your travel memories of NZ as this place has for so many others...

Looking forward to meeting, hosting and smiling with you here...

Safe travels :)
