Hi, nice to meet you!, we're Sheryll and Gary.

We're located in our little part of paradise in Lochmara Bay, which is about 10 min by boat from Picton. We also have access to the Queen Charlotte Track about 15 -20 min walk up the ridge and Lochmara Lodge is about 5 min across the Bay.

There are regular water taxis running from/to Picton.

We have a large garden and grow a lot of our own food and our eggs are supplied by our 5 resident chickens. Jilly our jack russell is our resident possum catcher.

The property is a 4 bedroom waterfront home (unlimited wifi - slow sometimes) with a fabulous view down the bay and a boatshed with lots of fun things to do including Kayaks and life jackets etc. We also have a large 50 ft launch which is moored outside the place.

Often we have family up staying with and Air BNB and being a rather large property we have lots of areas where someone could help out around the place in exchange for accomodation and food. Some types of help could include:
- helping with cleaning and cooking
- gardening and taming the surrounding bush
- helping gather wood
- washing/cleaning the boat
- spring cleaning various rooms and areas.
- painting and mvarious maintainence.
- helping getting the place ready for guests and family who come to stay.
- helping hosting guests.

**** anyone who is a diesel mechanic or has marine diesel experience would be really great as we have some work to do on the generator in our large boat****

If your interested please send us a message and tell us a little about yourself, when/how long your looking to come and the types of work you could/would like to help with.

It's also important to us that you enjoy your stay, so tell us a little about what interests you and what you would like to do/see while in the area and we can tell you a bit more about what's close by.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards
Sheryll & Gary
