We are on a 10 acre block with two dogs and two cats, a swimming pool and a spa pool (hot tub). You will need a car as we are 5 mins drive to Mangawhai village and 8 mins to the beach and there is no public transport.

Be sure to read our reviews.

We are looking for 2 people over the age of 23 who have a car, who are prepared to do 4 hours of work. We have a small amount of pine peeling to spread, firewood to gather and split, gardening to do and maybe some gravel to spread. If you are an experienced painter our house is overdue for some TLC or can do small building projects, cutting firewood etc or just helping out where it is needed. Once you have done your work then go off and enjoy the beach, Mangawahai, relax in the caravan with a book or WIFI.

Enjoy a typical Kiwi family!

Having initiative is really important to us and helping with dishes and odd jobs is appreciated.

We always enjoy our time with our helpxers - see our reviews but our accommodation is basic so if you want luxury, please don't come and stay with us but if you want a fun hard working kiwi family and are happy to be part of that we would love to hear from you.

Mangawhai is a beautiful coastal town in Northland, an hour north of Auckland with lots to do - the lovely clifftop walk, Bennetts Chocolate Factory and beautiful surf beaches.

We ask that you do 4 hours a day in return for food and accommodation. We live very busy lives so it is nice if there are 2 of you so you can work together and then go off and enjoy Mangawhai.

Just helping without being asked and having initiative is appreciated especially with dishes, cooking and cleaning.

Come and stay with us and enjoy:
* free skype and internet
* music room with piano, drums and guitar and amp
* home baking
* a relaxing spa with amazing views or stary nights
* you can borrow our surf board or take surf lessons with a local instructor
* swimming at the surf beach
* Bennetts Chocolate Factory

Please let us know if there is anything you don't eat when you email us.
