One acre paradise on the Otago Peninsula, close to wildlife attractions, peninsula walks and beautiful wild beaches with pure white sand. We have extensive veggie and cottage gardens, chook gardens (over 50 poultry) and milking sheep. 120 year old character villa with 2 bedrooms available at the moment with a queen bed in one and two single beds in the other.

Meals are provided but if you want to make your own meals you can use kitchen facilities to make own meals with basics provided and fresh produce as available.

There is a bus service to Portobello but own transport is an advantage if you want to explore the area. We have a couple of bicycles and a kayak.

We work our land in a sustainable way to provide vegetables year round. The chickens help to improve the soil and clear the weeds and produce eggs!
There is plenty of tidying in the gardens and chicken pens. Weather is unpredictable so placemenrs are weather and work dependent. Work expected: about 3 -4 hours/day, can include weeding, lawn-mowing, hedge pruning, planting, milking sheep, helping with chickens, housework, painting etc.
