Hello travellers

We are a family living in the beautiful West Auckland at the foothills off the Waitakere Ranges. Overlooking the ranges and native bush, 2 min walk to the local bay. no bus connection sorry. A 10 min drive to Titirangi where you find almost everything you need, such as a library, shops, cafes ATMs etc. Its about 35 min to downtown Auckland (outside of rush hour!). You are near the Western beaches and the Whaitakere Ranges - an outdoor paradise! I have two girls 10 and 14. I am originally from Switzerland but my kids have grown up in NZ. I cano speal German and French as well.
We do not eat any meat in our household. Our ideal helper is a mature, self reliant person, happy to help with jobs around the house unsupervised. Couples and friends travelling together welcome. You will need your own transport to get around. We live in a character wooden house that needs maintenance. Depending on your skills and interest we need some help with
- painting (exterior of a wooden house, 2nd top coat)
- staining the deck
- varnishing doors and wooden window frames and seals (interior
- interior painting (only if you are experienced)
- gardening, cutting back vegetation
- digging drainage trenches
- odd jobs round the house

But also things like:
- Cooking
- Cleaning
- Childcare

People with experience in trades such as carpenters/builders/plumbers or experience with renovations and house maintenance could potentially work extra hours for remuneration for some renovation projects I have. If you have experience or are working in trades contact me to hear more about the projects you could be involved in.

I prefer people to stay for at least 1 week.
Accommodation is in a campervan with access to the house for all amenities. Wifi is provided.

for accommodation and evening meals (with left overs for lunch) about 3-4hrs help a day 5 days a week depending on the task. Can easily be more one day and none the others.
Please provide your own breakfast and snacks.
