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.

We are looking for 1 or 2 people over the age of 23 who have a car, to do some work on the land/gardening - could be digging thistles/gorse with a spade/weed-eater or spraying who can work independently.

Could be some painting depending on skills. Any carpentry skills are always handy and if you have any fencing skills. There is always gardening and cleaning, painting cooking etc. 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.
