We do not require any more help until July/Aug.

We usually welcome Helpers only during winter: 1st May to 31th August, as Summer is full with Guests.

We are a 5 bed homestay/backpackers overlooking the beautiful Opua Harbour in the famous "Bay of Islands". We have stunning views! Check our reviews and Website ! We are situated at OKIATO - the site of the FIRST CAPITAL OF NZ. We are 10 min from the Russell township. Our home is warm & comfortable. We have broadband internet service & WIFI.

Duties while staying with us will include gardening, cleaning & general maintenance of our property. We can also make use of trades people such as electricians or plumbers from time to time. We are very flexible: 2h for a bed, 4h for a bed and 3 meals, you can do all the hours then take days off.
Activities in the Bay of Islands are plenty: swimming, kayaking, sailing sailboats, fishing, diving, walking in the nearby Kauri forest, hiking, horse trekking...

If you are in Kerikeri or Paihia, it is 10 min by car to go to the Opua Harbor (Intercity bus can drop you off near the Opua car ferry) then take the car ferry (only 1$/passenger, 12.50$/car) to Okiato and you'll easily find us ! We will also pick up from Russell if you take the passenger ferry from Paihia.
Nearby, you'll find the famous "Hundertwasser toilets" of Kawakawa and the historical place of the "Treaty of Waitangi".
We are 2h to Kaitaia (so 3h 30m to Cape Reinga), 1h from Whangarei so 4h from Auckland.

We prefer 2 to 7 days notice by HelpX or phone or TXT with your HelpX details, you can try short notice but we can't guarantee you'll have a bed.
Looking forward to meeting you!

PS : If we do not have duties to do, or if you want to come not as a Helper but as a guest, we have a special price of $52 per night for a double/twin bed room.
