Easiest job in the world?

We are a small backpackers hostel in Turangi that needs people to join us and help out with some basic hostel duties. We are quite highly rated on sites like Hostelworld, BBH and Tripadvisor so we can't be that bad a place to work either.

The job is configured so the majority of your time will be spent laying on the sofa watching TV, looking at your Facebook or playing with our dogs, and that's fine with us, as long as you can get a few other jobs done too. There are paid hours available if you want to do some housekeeping. This is in rotation with 2 other staff members and will be a minimum of 6 hours per week.

You'll need to get up off your lazy butt if the phone rings, a guest wants to check in or maybe to fold a little laundry. We also cook a pasta meal for our guests in the evening so you can do that too, but you'll get a free dinner out of it so that's not so bad. It's probably going to be the easiest job you ever had!!

In return, we will ... more inside

We are looking for casual helpers to help out intermittently with general work duties in return for accommodation and meals. We have a room with a double bed and a single bed so can accommodate up to 2 people. You would have access to your own bathroom and can use our laundry with dryer. We have bikes you can borrow for exploring the area also.

Help needed with cleaning, housekeeping, perhaps some gardening and also babysitting my two little ones (10 months and 2 years). I work from home so will always be around but some help with entertaining then would be hugely appreciated!

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.

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 meals and a room with internet access.

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

Any help would be appreciated.

If you decide to come to our place t... more inside

We welcome your enquiry as we enjoy having helpers to stay.

Please tell us the exact days you wish to come and stay.

Lake Taupo is a beautiful place with so many activities to experience. We can help you plan your Tongariro Crossing trip and all the other outdoor activities.

Market day is Saturday morning and you will be helping Martin with selling eggs, plants and other produce.

On the other days you will be helping with seeding, gardening, hydroponics as well as housework and other chores.

Occasionally there is heavy stuff to carry so you need to be okay with that.

You will work for either a whole day or half day. When you work for a whole day you have a whole day off. When you work for the morning you will have the afternoon off.
