Location: Hillcrest
Available: Sun 24 Dec
Description: 6 or more bedroom house with 2 bathrooms.

Really wild outdoor hut ("the gardener's cottage") in a communally minded essentially socialist flat. The room in question is really just a bedroom (you need to go into the house to use the kitchen etc) but is a lovely private retreat. It is warm, dry, and quiet.

We are an established household of mixed people-types. We keep our expenses down and sustainability up by doing some work in the house and grounds; we keep bees, chickens, and a reasonably productive vegetable garden and orchard. This may not suit some people but the basic labour expectations are not enormous. And maybe you dig homegrown and homemade! If so, this is your gig.

We have unlimited internet but please note the house doesn’t have a TV aerial (we enjoy not having TV ?).

Room is available for three months as I am walking the South Island from January - March 2018. Longer or shorter stays are negotiable, as is the rent. I would enjoy not having to move too much of actual furniture (bed, bookcases, etc), so the more you're prepared to have it pre-furnished the more negotiable I am with rent!

Other expenses are power/internet ($15) and communal groceries (covers pretty much everything - $45/wk). So all you need for a happy healthy life at a maximum of $145/wk!

You would be the fifth flatmate, although there is a possibility a sixth would be taken on board. Ideal flatmate would be open-minded, left-leaning or politically neutral, feminist- and queer-friendly, and non-racist.
Smokers OK, pets negotiable.
Furnishings: Bed, bookcases, full kitchen facilities (no dishwasher unfortunat­ely), lounge furniture etc.
In the area: University­, a good park, three or so small shopping centres, doctor, Buddhist centre, some churches.
Parking: In the driveway.
4 existing flatmates. Mixture of community workers and mature students aged 26-33.
Ideal flatmate: Loves the land and loves people. Reasonably considerat­e/non-messy.
