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.

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.
