Kia ora,

i live in a modest, cheerful townhouse in the lovely small city of Dunedin. My home is situated up a good sized hill (you might be better off with a car unless you really like walking - about a 15 min walk to Botanic Garden, 25 min to university, 30-40 min to town centre).

The work Im most wanting done at the moment is a bit of painting / paint prep inside , of living room windowframes etc. It's pretty basic, I can show you what to do. There are probably some garden bits and pieces too. I'm open to other skills you might want to offer. Cleaning is always an option if that is your thing ...

I work full time as a gardener and am often busy on weeknights so it's easier for me if you do your own cooking as i'm not always very regular with meal times, and im also vegetarian. Provide your own food - but help yourself to what's already here too.

The room you would be staying in has a double bed in it. It's just me and my cat living here at the moment . My partner norm... more inside

I have two properties:

1. "Elsewhere" a small lifestyle block set among tussock and schist tor country approx 45 minutes inland of Dunedin. Access is directly off a main sealed highway.

2. A small 3 bedroom home in Dunedin city.

I work from my town base part time (Conservation and Environmental protection assistance and advice to landowners) and spend as much time on my lifestyle block as possible approx 45 minute drive from the city.

That area is very dry with moderate extremes of weather - hot in summer/cold in winter.

My property has been largely destocked for 14+ years to enable regeneration of indigenous native plant species and as habitat for native animals. I run a major ongoing animal predator trapping project as part of that programme.

My cottage is quite small (3 bedrooms) but warm and dry. It is fully off grid (PV/batteries). Cellphone coverage is limited due to location. Internet only available via your cellphone.

All water is via roof supply (which ... more inside

There are always lots of jobs to do.
We have several bedrooms, all have big beds and private bathrooms. WiFi too. We provide and cook all your meals.
In exchange if you can put in a mornings work we would be very grateful.

I HAVE SOLD MY FARM and moved to the Southern Lakes District. I live on my own, and enjoy the company of young people from around the world.

Please read Carelias review of her time here.
She describes my feelings so well.

I AM SLIGHTLY DISABLED BUT COMPLETELY INDEPENDENT.

I use crutches, so need a bit of help with work requiring both hands. We have a good routine here, not complicated to follow, but I do need people with GOOD COOKING and cleaning skills, plus some light gardening. Drivers license is also important I have a new home with good and private visitor facilities with own bathroom etc. I would prefer a minimum of one month stay.

I appreciate those who show good initiative, and am happy to share my favourite parts of the Wanaka region with you.

I am situated in Wanaka suburbs with the beautiful Central Otago and lakes district at your doorstep.

Wi-fi YES.

Smoking NO.
