Hello!

We are looking for a helper in Queenstown from Sept 17th 2019.

We are a fun active family of 4 with 2 little boys aged 2 and 4. We are looking for someone energetic that is experienced with, and loves kids.

Your main role would be to help with dinner Monday - Friday and to watch the boys when required. We are looking for someone from now during August. We would prefer a minimum 2 week stay so the boys get to know you.

Ideally we would like someone that is quite flexible as my business is in start up mode and I may be required to head out last minute where the boys would need to be cared for. I would prefer to spend as much time with my children as I can so the 'child care' is required only when I'm called out for work.

Most of my work is generally in the afternoons, Dad works 9-5 so will be home by dinner time. Weekends will be to yourself to explore and enjoy beautiful Queenstown (along with most mornings). The boys are also in Kindy two days per w... more inside

If you love horses and are happy to be around horses then this is the home for you. In fact if you love animals full stop then our home is a great spot to stop awhile.
******Please only contact us if you have been around horses and are familiar with farm life*******
We are located 2 mins from the village of Arrowtown and approx 20 mins from Queenstown.
We are a happy go lucky very busy family that consists of 2 teenage daughters 3 dogs 1 cat.... oh and then there are the alpacas goats lambs sheep cows cattle chooks 9 horses and 1 pet deer.
Please do not be surprised if the odd alpaca decides to lie in front of fire and watch TV :)
We have thoroughly enjoyed some absolutely wonderful helpers but have also had a selection of lazy bums who really only want cheap accommodation. If that is you please keep looking elsewhere.
Looking forward to hearing from you if you are motivated and you are at a loose end for awhile and would love to enjoy a good old kiwi way of living ;... more inside

We have also started breeding chickens, also bantams. Donald works 45 hours a week and I am unable to do any heavy work due to back surgery. we have a 3 bedroom home with plenty of room also an outside room which we are hoping to convert into private accommodation. We are looking for people who are interested in gardening and anyone who knows about trees as we have over 60 mature trees that have never been pruned. We have two dogs 3 cats, and as I used to work as an Auxiliary Officer for the NZSPCA in Oamaru, most of our animals are rescues. We have plenty outside work in the garden, and we are very flexible with stays, from a couple of days to a few weeks. We can offer a car if necessary.

*LOOKING FOR A COUPLE*

We are a busy glamping business located in the picturesque Waitaki Valley 3.5 hours drive south of Christchurch and 2.5 hours from Queenstown.

Looking for a couple to help us out with the busy tourist season coming up. Longer term preferable but short term is ok too.

Duties will include cleaning our domes and lodge plus some gardening and general work. Accommodation is in one of our cabins located in the forest. The couple will have access to our outdoor baths when guests are not using them, plus will be able to enjoy the glamping also when it is quieter.

The Waitaki Valley is near lakes and the Waitaki river which are great for fishing etc. Great hiking in the hills behind our place too.
