Last Updated: March 8, 2018

Update: 09/3/2018 - We have 1 HelpX Helper currently. Open to hosting a few more for the week starting March 12th.


Guest bedroom is currently available for single or couple. Happy to host more than 2, but will provide tent for camping on property, or your van/rv to park on property.

Could use some help with cleaning and staining deck, painting, gardening, stacking firewood, clearing shrubbery, cleaning, and helping with kids.

If you see this update, we welcome new Helpers!

We are former world travelers who have traded our packs for diaper bags. American/Kiwi family looking for help around our home and property. Charlotte is originally from California (Redondo Beach) and Doug was born and raised on the Tutukaka Coast.

Doug is a builder and has built our home, therefore, it's always under construction. We have a 2 year old and a newborn, so would love folks who have experience with, or enjoy little children.

We have 18 acres of natural bush and wetlands, and would love it if you have childcare (RIE knowledge is a plus!), cleaning, carpentry, painting, arborist, gardening, landscape design, or permaculture experience appreciated, but not required! Happy to have help pulling weeds or cleaning a bathroom :)

We are working towards a self sufficient homestead, but since we just moved in July, there is still lots of work to be done.

Bonus points for native Spanish and Francophone speakers! It is okay if your English isn't very good, Charlotte would love to work on her French & Spanish!

What to see and do: We are located on the Tutukaka Coast, which is known for it's amazing beaches and The Poor Knights Marine reserve. If you love diving, sport fishing, or water sports, this is a great place to visit. We are also a short drive away from the Bay of Islands, so easy for quick day trips.

We have a guest bedroom available with a queen bed that you are welcome to. If you prefer more of a camping "Kiwi Bush" experience, we have plenty of land for you to pitch a tent or park your car/van. If you don't have a tent, but would like to camp, we have one you may borrow.

If you love to cook, as we do because we love to eat!! We have a fully stocked gourmet kitchen to indulge in! We love sharing meals with our guests and look forward to it! Free WiFi and Netflix!

We are open to short and long term visits. Happy to pick you up in Whangarei if you need a ride to us.

Happy travels!
