Come and experience a NZ coastal farm, and.... we have a beautiful, sandy, safe beach for you to enjoy =)

We are currently looking for one or two people to come and help about the place on for 4-7 nights during May.

About us - we are a family of five with three children aged 5, 8 & 9 yrs. We live in Lavericks Bay, where we run a 1500 hectare sheep and cattle farm, and tourist accommodation in the form of a glamping site -

Lavericks Bay is about 35 min from the historic township of Akaroa, and 1.75hrs from Christchurch. Lavericks Bay has a population of nine people (five being us) so there is plenty of peace and quiet. We also have a lovely sandy, safe swimming beach where you may spot seals, Hector Dolphins, our resident Yellow Eyed Penguin, and plenty of other birdlife. We have a kayak you may also use which is great fun for exploring and surfing in the waves, weather permitting...

You will be required to do about four hours of work per day (gardening/landscaping, help at the glamping site, and/or housework). In return you'll be provided with a lovely house to stay in, home cooked meals, and maybe even the chance to stay at the glamping site with food for self catering, for a couple of nights - depending on availability.

If you have any other questions please just ask....

Please DO NOT try and contact us through the Canopy Camping website. We will only consider guests who use the HelpX messaging system. Thank you!
