OWN TRANSPORT is a must for our helpers as we are 14km from Taupo township. We can host for 2 - 3 nights at a time or longer.
This location is great for accessing the best of the area, whether it be Taupo town's activities or the mountains for skiing, lake Taupo, hiking or exploring the latest bike tracks.
You would have your own private bedroom. The accommodation is either one the two spare bedrooms in our house. Helpers have a separate bathroom and tea/coffee making facilities. It is a big house and there is plenty of room!
Generally we will work on full day's work followed by a full day off. So help us for a whole day you have a whole day off to explore.
We are happy to negotiate when the full day's help happen, giving you the opportunity to organise days off to explore our region - we can discuss this when you are arranging to stay.
Occasionally there is heavy stuff to carry so you need to be okay with that. Depending on your interests and abilities we have lots of jobs to choose from;
* gardening - plenty
* chopping firewood
* handyman jobs - various
* painting - when the weather is favourable
We hope to be fair and flexible in that we get help through your work and you enjoy some of Taupo's lovely attractions and activities while staying with us.
Taupo is in the Central North Island, a beautiful tourist destination on the edge of a big lake, with plenty to do. Check out these websites -
On your free days we prefer it if you go out and see all the sights of Taupo rather than stay in your room all day. We can help let you know some of the things there are to see and do.
When you are working full day's we supply all your meals; breakfast, lunch and evening meal. You supply your own meals on your days off.
Free WiFi is available.
We like helpers who are tidy and non smokers. Or if smokers, only smoke outside.
We are looking forward to having some helpers and meeting new people from around the world.
Please email us with some information about yourself and any questions you would like us to answer.
See you soon.
