.....We have a few groups of HelpX people arranged to stay from 20 February until Mid April. So we will be looking again from Mid April.....

Our property was previously an orchard but is now a small lifestyle block with main house and a separate 1 bedroom self contained cottage for accommodation. The cottage has a kitchen, bathroom and laundry. The kitchen has cooking appliances, plates, cups etc. There is a double bed in the bedroom and a comfortable double sofa bed in lounge. The cottage is 55m2 in area.

It is in a rural area 10mins from Rangiora and 45mins from central Christchurch by car. We are a professional couple (engineer and nurse) with two boys aged 10 and 12. We are from NZ but lived in Scotland and travelled around Europe while there for 5 years. We have 2 cats, 1 dog and 1 pet sheep.

We are looking for general help around the property such as gardening, maintenance, painting, firewood, cleaning, etc and occasionally looking after the boys. It will suit single or couple or a family, non-smokers.

We can offer accommodation for 2 hours work per day. So you would cook your own meals. We are happy to be flexible such as combining the hours of work in a day to have days off. Given the distance to Rangiora/Christchurh it would suit someone with a car but happy to discuss.

The two bigger photos are of the cottage inside and out. The group of 4 smaller photos are the main house.
