Hi, we are a couple in our late 60's (both retired), who are looking for some help on our small property. You would be asked for 4-5hrs help per day in return for accommodation and all meals. Work will include gardening, fencing, painting, carpentry/building. We just need help getting our small property into reasonable working order. We live 7km south of Cheviot in Domett, close to the popular surf beach at Gore Bay, also we are close to Mt Lyford ski field and 77km south of the beautiful township of Kaikoura. If you wish to be totally independant, you will need your own transport, although I usually go into Christchurch once a week. We have WIFI available, and limited mobile coverage. Accommodation is a single bedroom with twin beds and shared bathroom. You must like animals (especially dogs) as much as we do, as we own 8 dogs, 8 sheep, 4 cockatiels and 5 quail! We envisage your stay would be up to approx. 2weeks in duration, but could be a little longer if work is available. NO smokers please and limited English would be an advantage. We look forward to making new friends from different countries and to give you a memorable stay.
