**This listing is now taken . Please check again in a few weeks. Thanks. **

We are Lisa and Graham. We have half a hectare of pines, bush and gardens with a beautiful 1890s cottage we share with our cat overlooking the ocean just outside Dunedin. We are experienced hosts who like to meet new people from all over the world.

This time we are looking for helpers to help do some painting and gardening jobs - so ideally people who are ok to work on a ladder and have some experience painting (so who know how to use a roller and a brush).

We ask for 3 hours work a day per person (although we usually organize this in full days on and full days off) and in exchange we offer your own double bedroom with en suite bathroom (plus all meals, laundry, unlimited wifi etc.)

The cottage has amazing views - the photos of the sunrise and cruise ship were taken from our lounge :)

This hosting would suit a couple or friends who don't mind sharing a queen bed. People of any age and nationality are welcome but you need at least a basic level of fitness and a basic understanding of english.

We are only 15 minute drive from Dunedin city centre. There are also some great beaches and walks only a 10 minute drive away where you can see the local wildlife including seals, sea lions and penguins and sometimes dolphins too :) We have paddle boards (one hard board and one inflatable board) you can use to explore the bays and islands. We are also happy to give you advice as to the best places to go in the area.

Contact us for more :)
