We are located near Leigh Village on the East Coast North of Auckland (known as the Cape Rodney Coast). Leigh is approx one and half hours by car and there are some bus links to nearby Warkworth / Matakana and we can arrange to pick you up from the bus stop.
For a short-term cultural exchange we are looking for preferably one or two helpers and couples are very welcome. Hopefully when we get some water we can arrange a time in Mid to late April 2020 (from the 16th or 17th April 2020 to the 26th or 27th of April 2020) and we are flexible around those dates. The property is our holiday home and is modern and very comfortable and we like to keep the property very clean, nice and reserve your place.
It would be great if you can help with gardening mostly weed removal and if you like some easy painting and handy jobs. Also there are some other minor projects like a set of recycled block steps that we would like to be finished. The usual inside cleaning and outside lobs weather permitting. Good all round kitchen skills would be most welcome.
We are looking for nice people who have ideas and initiative who can work without supervision and who will complete the work to a good standard.
Helpx visitors will have a choice of two very comfortable double rooms, either one queen bed, or a room with a double bed and a single bed.Each bedroom has a door onto the deck and the view. Good bathroom just for the Helpx rooms with separate shower and bath and unlimited WiFi. We will provide you good whole some food depending on diet as we like simple, good quality meals. We have flexibility with hours generally 4 hours a day but can do 8 hours one day and then the next whole day free.
We are looking for help,time and dates by negotiation.
We would like you be friendly and independent, creative garden/landscape ideas/skills would be a bonus.
Please no group requests
Leigh is an active area with the Goat Island Marine Reserve just 5 min drive away. There are many good coastal and bush walks, beaches for swimming and surfing and the marine reserve is great for snorkeling and the rocky coastline. The Leigh wharf as it is a fishing inlet is interesting to see a working wharf. Also you can walk to the General Store and Cafe from the Leigh house, but would need your own transport to get further afield. We can pick you up from Warkworth/ Matakana where there is a bus service.
Leigh is 20 minutes from Warkworth (one hour north of Auckland City) .
Leigh by the Sea is 15 minutes from Matakana Village known for a tradition pub, vineyards, olive oil, blueberry farms and organic coffee.
Thanks again for no smoking, no children and no pets.
As mentioned a degree of independence would be great as we sometimes work in Auckland during the weekdays.
We are very friendly and east going Kiwi hosts.
