Our place is a beautiful, peaceful seaside house and established garden on the amazing Otago Peninsula, in the township of Portobello.
We are passionate about gardening and the slow, simple life - working toward our goals slowly as we bring up our daughter Daisy (3) and son Raffy, 10 months.
We absolutely love hosting and meeting new friends, as it opens up our world and teaches our kids so many wonderful things!
Jobs for us revolve mainly around the garden - caring for garden beds, planting, weeding, tree care, chicken care, very basic building, cleaning, house maintenance. A little bit of babysitting could also be thrown in the mix if you love cute bubbas!
Life out here is great, we love to cook homegrown food (Aidan is a Youth Mentor and Chef, and Bella is a Photographer), surf, bike, go diving and spearfishing, kayak, garden, socialise around the fire and enjoy good craft beer and comedy!
Around us are some of the most beautiful coastlines of New Zealand, with many tourist activities such as Albatrosses, Fur Seals, Sealions and Penguins, lots of hiking and kayaking. We are 25 minutes from Dunedin City, which is a wonderful drive away.
Beautiful sightseeing options around Otago are abundant, and you'll have a great base to start from!
We are looking for around 4hrs work per day, in return for breakfast, lunch and a yummy dinner. You can double up on one day and have a day off the next if you like :)
We have a lovely large private room with a queen sized bed and unlimited wifi available, we prefer couples as it's more efficient for us having two people - sorry to you singles!!
It would be best if you have a car, as there is a lot to explore out here and we are far from the normal city amenities. (There is only one shop, a cafe and a pub in Portobello!)
We're looking forward to opening our lives to some new friends, and sharing some great progress on the property!

We are currently looking for help with tree work, weeding, clearing, pruning, and house maintenance.
Looking forward to meeting some lovely new people!
