We are away for the next month. We would like to get back on line at the end of March .
We need occasional help to get our house back to normal as we work fulltime - so windows, especially gardening (a large wild garden at present),general cleaning etc. The accommodation offered is in a separate wing of the house with it's own entrance and bathroom although the rest of the house can be used by the helpers. There are only 2 adults in the house, no children, and one very old dog. We are well travelled and have seen a lot of countries as cycle tourists over the last 12 years.
Taupo is an adventure destination with lots to see and do including the famous Tongariro Crossing.4-5 days would be prefect.

I occasionally like to have help in the garden, or for a few maintenance jobs around the home, four hours a day flexible working time, in exchange for accommodation and meals...three to seven days is a good time frame depending on what wants doing at the time....

A small modernised home with garden and vegetables, in close proximity to the town centre, Bungy Jump and Spa Park ...comfy double bed in own small room, with carpeted luggage space down two stairs in the garage.

I am a friendly happy person, who is interested in health and wellbeing.

I enjoy having non-smoking people to stay and am happy to show them round the local area and help them book the Tongariro Crossing etc.

*** I have had some very good help and other helpers are booked in to come in the near future, so sorry I won't be needing any more helpers for a while ***

We travel NZ for 33 weeks of the year starting late sept through to the beginning of may.
We travel with The Original Gypsy Fair, and run a mobile food kitchen.We start in the middle of the North island working our way around it so that by the middle of February we are in Wellington ready to cross over to the South island to do about 12 fairs.
We would like help on the Fridays, Sat & Sun. Over the christmas and newyear period we work eight days straight, and some weekends are longer ie easter, and some anniversary, and public holiday weekends.
You would be working about 6 hours each working day but you would have the days from Monday to Thursday free, unless it's a long weekend.
This is a great opportunity for someone to travel round NZ see both the north and south islands and to experience this unique lifestyle, and see our beautiful country.
