Have five acres run a wee mob of sheep and need a backpacker/Woofer who is traveling in NZ to give a hand with gardening, cleaning and assisting with various projects and jobs around the place in exchange for board and lodging. Happy to teach if you don't know it will be safe fun and interesting. Woodwork, chainsaw use, building, cooking, bread making, lots of things. No fixed hours but I'd hope for perhaps a bit of effort for perhaps four hours a day.
Beautiful location... Taieri Mouth. Lovely house right on the sea has spa private beach & now only one black lab Basil to walk, his mate Cybil sadly passed away a few weeks ago. I also have a whitebait net if your really keen.
You will have your own room with a sea view, stereo, private bathroom, unlimited high speed Internet, lots of entertainment, music, Netflix, movies and so forth oh and a great cook! lol Guaranteed there will be no pre cooked sausages!
As a backpacker I crave a permanent place for a few weeks when I travel for a long time. A door to close. A space of my own and not to have to think about travel or food. So this would suit perhaps a backpacker looking for some time out for a week or so. All is asked of you is to make an effort and help keep the place in top shape.
During the last summer there was scarcely a visitor free day and there were lots of inquiries so please don't be disappointed if you don't receive a reply. Please send some info about yourself as 'giz a job' won't cut the mustard or elicit a response!
BTW Dunedin City Center is 30 minutes away.
