HANNAH & JULIEN ARE COMING IN MAY. HELP NEEDED AT THE BEGINNING OF JUNE, AND NEAR THE END OF JULY

Our home is close to the Ohakune Mountain Road that goes up Mount Ruapehu to hiking tracks, LOTR filming sites, and to Turoa ski field. The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is about one hour from here. Mountain bike tracks, and canoe trips down the Whanganui River also start at Ohakune.

I can provide about one week of work and adventures every month for helpers. Work for 20 hours or so and spend the rest of your time going off exploring Middle Earth.

As I have got older, my legs and back have started to lose their former strength, so I appreciate young people coming to help me. I mainly need help with gardening - digging garden beds, transplanting shrubs, planting flowers, weed spraying, lawnmowing. I'm also making LOTR costumes: you can also help with those if you like.

I'm enjoy hiking around the slopes of Mt Ruapehu. I'm 76 and can't walk as far as I used to but I can gui... more inside

Hello

Anyone keen from the 2nd or 3rd May to help out? Will need the help over the weekend setting up and helping me with a community planting day.

Also at home we have some doors that we could do with some advice and help with refurbishing them..

About us we are a couple in our mid forties with 2 girls 8 & 11 and one cat, we both work so would really appreciate some help.

In exchange of 4-5 hours work per day we will provide 3 meals and if you love cooking you are more than welcome to help cook some meals. You would get your own room with a double bed but we only have one bathroom.

We will be flexible so that you can get out and enjoy what this area has to offer. Your own transport is helpful though not necessary.

We would love to have a friendly honest self motivated Helpx that is genuinely interested in helping out, and non smokers :)

I have a large garden and finding it harder to keep it maintained from winter through to summer. We would like, preferably a young man who can prune shrubs etc. I would show him what I wanted done and then be able to leave him to it. We don't mind if they stay one month or three months. If he was interested in the farm he would also be able to go out and help on the farm or just enjoy the ride, if he wanted to. Would be well looked after.
We are very social people with grown children, late 20s.
We would want someone who would just fit in with our lifestyle, be fun to get on with, and be one of the family.

We have a small lifestyle block with cows, sheep, a goat, hens and cats, and are a 25 minute drive from Taupo town centre with no public transport or shops near us. We are a closeknit family of 3 (mum & 2 girls) and are looking for a female that will help with gardening, landscaping, maintenance, thistle grubbing, dock removal, wood stacking, spring cleaning, household chores & cooking. Help with everyday things like dishes and meal preparation is expected - if you love to cook, we'd love to try it!

We are pretty relaxed, but hardworking and expect that you will join in as part of the family. You will have your own room with a double bed and we ask that this is kept tidy. This room has had the wallpaper stripped ready for repainting. It affects nothing but the look of the room, but we like to let people know.

In exchange for 4-5 hours work per day we will provide breakfast, lunch and dinner. We are pretty flexible with when you do your hours, and if you want to combine ho... more inside

Housekeeping and general reception duties. Mostly work for accommodation but we also offer around 6-9 paid hours per week, sometimes more if we are short staffed.

We need people who are very confident with their English and able to speak well on the phone. You must be able to pick up the job requirements quickly as you are only here for 2 weeks and we can't hold your hand for the entire time. Most people find it easy with a little common-sense.

It's a decent job with a lot of down-time so most people enjoy it here. As long as your work is done to a high standard, you will have a pretty easy time.

We offer accommodation in a staff only room, Wifi, laundry, evening pasta meal and a free shuttle to the Tongariro Crossing during your stay. Plus some paid hours for those that are doing a good job. You must have a valid working holiday visa and IRD number.

We have a Labrador and she's fun to hang out with too.

Please apply with your name, age, nationality and date you can a... more inside

This location is great for accessing the best of the area, whether it be Taupo town's activities or the mountains for skiing, lake Taupo, hiking or exploring the latest bike tracks.

As an experienced teacher of English as a second language, if you wish I can help improve your English during your stay. Mostly though, we hope to be fair and flexible in that we get help through your work and you enjoy some of Taupo's lovely attractions and activities while staying with us.

We can host for 2 - 3 nights at a time or longer.

OWN TRANSPORT is preferred for our helpers as we are 14km from Taupo township. Sometimes, we will take helpers who don't have a car and will drive them into town on their day's off, but this needs to be arranged beforehand.

You would have your own private bedroom. The accommodation is either one of the two spare bedrooms in our house. Helpers have a separate bathroom and tea/coffee making facilities. It is a big house and there is plenty of room!
