We have a small life style property in the sunny Wairarapa consisting of paddocks and gardens, fruit trees, lawns etc.
The space is very tranquil with spacious gardens, lawns and a pool area - quite a bit to maintain.
There are a few animals here as well as many on surrounding farms.
The property has two dwellings, as well as an art studio, and farm buildings.
Help is always very appreciated with ongoing maintenance as well as the creation and construction, and food garden areas etc.

The Wairarapa is situated just an hour north of Wellington and we are located 15 minutes from the wine region centre of Martinborough where some of NZ's great wines are produced
The property location is quiet and private next to a river.
Generally the area is mostly farming and grape growing, the climate is hot - a lot warmer than Wellington and there are plenty of great outdoor activities such as tramping, kayaking, biking, fishing in the river or ocean (30mins away) as well as many sites and forest parks to explore.
There is a train connection to Wellington city centre that takes around 50 minutes.

As a worldly traveller in my 40's, I make effort to enjoy the lifestyle here as much as possible between trips away.
Im open and easy going, we like to have good food and a nice lifestyle here.
Helpx has been such a great way to meet people and share this space and the projects with - there has been many fun times and friendships created - it is nice to be able to remember the projects and the people who shared in them, and this somehow makes the property more special as it grows.
It is great having learned new skills as much as passing mine on - in the creation of the lifestyle block, it has been really positive to share in this, and amazing to look around and see what has been achieved.

I hope the property can offer you as nicer time, and add to your travel memories of NZ as it has so many others.

Looking forward to meeting and hosting you here...

Safe travels :)
