We are looking for a Helpx to join us for December to help with spring gardening preparation and domestic duties and have a wonderful time in fiordland at the same time! HelpX with academic skills - eg languages or music or maths - with a calm and polite persona and good commonsense and maturity of mind do well. We are a quiet family with two children, no tv but a lot of love. We live very close (one of the closest houses) to the start of the Kepler Track, and right next to the giant wilderness of Lake Te Anau and Fiordland National Park on our beautiful, rural lifestyle section with amazing views of the mountains and lake, and give you days off for enjoying these spectacular surroundings. We need help on our beautiful rural section, which can be cycled to from the centre of Te Anau around the lake. We are also next door to an amazing off road cycle path down a Lord of the Rings river and have a bike you can use. We have chickens, flowers, hammocks, love and laughter. Due to our work, Mary is often away however and Andrew works some long days as a kayak guide in Milford Sound. So we need a flexible helper although we also provide ample time off and advice on how to enjoy Fiordland while you are with us. We eat good food which is often vegan (we make our own nut milk) but we also eat wild meat from our forest, hunted by Andrew - particularly deer. We are academic and love education and music and have a piano and guitars. We welcome helpers who are well-educated and particularly keen to spend time with children, helping them educationally and also helping them enjoy the outdoor world. We also welcome helpers who are particularly considerate and understand how to clear up, wash and fold clothes, clean rooms, tidy and generally follow instructions with care, and be a respectful member of our family environment and not too noisy, and also people who know how to limit screen time! We like people who are trying to be active listeners and aiming for personal growth. We are not religious but welcome people from all backgrounds and countries. We are happy to accept respectful couples. Get in touch!
