This is a small, very private and peaceful property on the edge of a protected wetland of regional significance, five minutes from the Otaki rail station and inland from the coast. It supports domestic vegetable gardens, a small orchard, and firewood trees in addition to the wetland margin and native replanting. Help needed with these activities (garden preparation and maintenance, firewood (cutting, stacking, moving) wetlands (weeding and replanting) as well as domestic chores such as house maintenance (window washing, repainting, home handy person repairs).
Accommodation is in a charming, private, stand alone cottage with new bathroom and stovetop cooking facilities located beside the main house. It has one double bed and a sofa bed as well as table and chairs and sunny decks with views into the orchard and beyond. Our guests tell us the meals we provide are very good.
It is a one hour drive to Wellington city, and between 10 and 20 minutes from beaches at Otaki, Pekapeka and Waikanae.
We are happy for visitors to stay up to 4 nights or by negotiation for a longer period. We provide dinner and accommodation in exchange for 4 hours help per day.
We would like you be non-smoking and to have references.
