Beaches Motel

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionHello, I'm Cyrus and I manage the parents Motel here at Waihi Beach.
    I love to meet backpackers and have done a bit of backpacking around in the past!
    I'm 26 and an easy going dude, I come from a large family (7 brothers, 2 sisters) I'm the second youngest.
    I love to have a good laugh and a couply beers. Keen on doing hikes and chilling at the beach enjoying the sun whenever possible.

    Duties here would include helping clean units, washing laundry, hanging and folding sheets, gardening/weeding etc.
    Approx 2-3 hrs a day (Possibly 4 on a very busy day! Don't worry I'm no slave driver!)
    I'm flexible if you want a cruisy day that's also no problem!

    In exchange for this I can offer you your own room and the odd cooked dinners. (I'm not the master chef but can do some decent basic meals)
    Breakfast & Lunch is help yourself so don't worry pantry and fridge will be stocked up.

    1 min walk to Waihi Beach
    5 min walk to the village shops

    Please give me a message if this sounds like you and you'd be interested.. Probably more so looking at people willing to stay 10-14days maybe even longer depending on how the situation is.

    PS that's me on the left in the photo(Sorry! I don't have any decent photos on my laptop to put as a host) :/

    Thank you
