Hi we are Brian and Verona - both kiwis - we are hard workers but love to relax and have a bit of quietness at the end of a busy day. If your interested in staying somewhere that feels like a home away from home one of our places could be right for you.

We have 2 places we call home - both listed on airbnb - 1 located in a rural township called Raetihi (perfect for Tongariro crossing and other national park adventures) and one close to the sea in Castlecliff, Whanganui.

In Raetihi we have great outdoor adventures close by - tramping, swimming in the river, mountain biking you will love it here. In Whanganui we are close to "the mole" a local surf spot, interesting history & buildings, great Saturday market.

We would love some help at both properties.

Help exchange: we generally expect 4 hours per day on the days you are helping with the flexibility to take days off to explore locally. We will provide breakfast, lunch, & dinner and a room with internet access.

Possible jobs: gardening, painting, property maintenance, building projects, sorting firewood, help around the house etc. Currently the things on-top-of-the-list are outside jobs to be completed before winter. Any help would be appreciated.

In April, May & June we will be looking for people with inside handyman skills eg. sanding, painting, and building skills

If you decide to come to our place the best day to arrive is a Tuesday - but feel free to message and talk about that. Sometimes it just depends on what we are doing.

We love hearing peoples travel stories from around the world and helping people discover NZ life and our beautiful country.
