We are a Christian homeschooling family, who run a shop in the small town of Twizel in the beautiful Mackenzie Country.

Life is very full with running the household, land and business, plus we are quite involved in our community.

We have quite a few visitors coming and going, but we only have two children left at home during term-time now - 12yo & 19yo.

We have room for one or two Helpxers. You will have your own room in the house. We have broadband internet & WiFi.

We have an adorable labrador dog, a guinea pig & a budgie. We have a small vege garden and enjoy many herbs and flowers in pots and baskets :-)

We need someone who loves cooking and would enjoy making the evening meal for us (and definitely not a vegetarian please!) and can do light household duties to help us run the home and keep it tidy (something we really struggle with currently - we need more time!) and clean. Plenty of opportunities to practise English! And we love European boardgames.

This is an amazing area of the South Island to explore. It is very isolated and quiet, but the scenery is incredible. We are nestled in the Southern Alps and there is a fascinating network of lakes, canals and hydro dams, with walking and biking trails. Mt. Cook is only 50 minutes drive away, and Lake Tekapo 40 minutes. You can be at Ohau Skifield within an hour! If you are keen to give it a go, the fishing around here is legendary! We have a bike and fishing gear you can borrow.

Easy access from Christchurch (4 hours drive) or Queenstown (2 hours drive), via bus.

We are needing four hours of work a day, mostly afternoon/early evening meal preparation and clean-up, in return for full board, but are very flexible when you want time off to explore. You can always make up hours the next day. We are two hours from the nearest city, Timaru.
