Last Updated: October 25, 2019

Our place is a lifestyle block which is bordered by a stream and sits between the Puketi forest and Kerikeri and the Bay of Islands.
We are looking for someone to help us around the section and around the house. You will stay in a self-contained cottage - but hopefully spend some quality time with us each day.
We are a couple of empty-nesters but our friendly dog compensates for that :) Son and daughter are sometimes home but otherwise working and studying in Auckland.
We try to treat our helpers as family rather than unpaid help. So there would be some work to be done around the property and plenty of relaxing time too!
