Hi, we are a Kiwi/German family of four (with a 3 and a 7 year old) and with two large dogs, two cats and nine chickens, and a big backyard with lots of work.
We live one hour north of Auckland, in an attractive area with lots of great (surf)beaches and weekend markets and happenings nearby. For example, the popular Matakana farmers and vintage market, Goat Island marine reserve, Tawharanui Regional Park and great restaurants, cafés and Leigh Sawmill cafe for gigs. All this and much more within a 30 min. drive from our house. From here, it is a good town to start exploring the Far North of New Zealand, like Cape Reinga or the Bay of Islands.

We offer a newly renovated bedroom with a comfortable queen size bed and own bathroom and three meals a day. We also got wifi so you can stay connected.

In exchange we expect about 4 hours of work per night of stay and would like someone with a can-do attitude and some DIY skills to help us with some gardening work and some house renovations. At the moment we would need someone to do some house renovations / and or gardening work and occasionally some child or dog minding.
We could have some helpers from mid February/March. Looking forward to meeting you soon. (Please give us at least 24 hours to respond to your message. Time is short at the moment so please no time wasters). We currently also have a converted camper Toyota Estima with cooker and mattress etc. for sale if someone just starts there travel in Nz it might be a good car to drive around the country and everything is ready to go. If you are interested please get in touch and we can arrange a test drive for you. Minimum stay is 1 week. Safe travels.
