We need help around the home the usual stuff in particular gardening cleaning etc. Ideally we would like the same person(s) for a few weeks or so. Availability in particular from 15th Jan. Also ideally looking for someone who wants to stay a little longer or maybe for the summer or winter season. We need help with anything and everything (gardening, cleaning, washing clothes, cleaning windows, mopping floors, watering plants, hoovering & ironing etc). A good standard of English is helpful. Looking for someone who is independent and happy to to pitch in with whatever needs doing. Would prefer a single girl as our kids seem more comfortable with that but would consider a couple or two friends.

You will be staying (in our fairly new 2017 German Dethleff caravan with all mod cons including wifi, electricity heating and fridge etc) plus 3 meals in exchange for 4
hours help per person per night stayed with 2 days off for 7 worked days. The help may be in the morning or afternoon. If you had an evening job that started after 5 pm in Queenstown we could be a good fit for you as well.

If you want an idea of (BUT NOT our exact caravan!!!) see the picture attached and the layout at https://www.uwcaravan.nl/dethleffs-cgo-495-qsk.html

We are very close to Queenstown but set in a peaceful rural setting only just 5 mins DRIVE out of town - with sheep on the property as well. No car available for HelpX but we can off and on drop you in and out of town when we are passing through and there is a bus stop 5 minutes walk around the corner with buses into town. Sorry we are very strict and don't take any smokers. I'm afraid we only offer the meals we cook for the family so cannot cater to or provide any special food for dietary needs. We try to be flexible with hours. Thanks Jen
