We live very close to public transport links as well as you are welcome to use our mountain bikes to cycle within the city boundaries.

There is free fibre wifi.

The bed is a comfy king single with a trundle single so two could stay if required.

We need around 3 hours enthusiastic help per day. Usually we are looking for someone to help with laundry, house cleaning, looking after the dog and weeding etc in the garden.

We are happy to use your strengths and if you have building skills or are happy to help only in the garden please let us know.

We are a late fifties couple, with one dog 8 chooks and 7 sheep, living on 3 acres of peaceful country just 6km from central New Plymouth.

Current, planned projects include a erecting a glasshouse, landscaping, building vegetable gardens, painting, fencing, and of course the never ending weeding along with a lot of other fun activities that happen each day in running a small farmlet.

Our understanding of HelpX is 4 hours work per person per day, for three meals and a bed. We understand there are other arrangements, but we would be happy with the above, or a variation of it.

We have wireless internet; mobile coverage is probably about 97%; no land line.
We do have a TV set up to use.

The accommodation is a either a separate 2 bedroom apartment, with mountain views, in the main house or a small stand alone cabin.

Regarding dietary needs,one of us is gluten free so can cater for special requirements.
We are a non smoking house hold.

A great attitude is the most important job requirement you're going to need when you come to stay with us at McArthur Park. Being honest, clean and responsible would all come in a close second. No skills required if you're willing to listen and follow our lead. Simple right? :)

I'm an American and my wife is English. We look forward in exchanging and sharing our cultural differences. Mainly we would love a helping hand in the garden and in the house with some light housework. In exchange for helping out, you're welcome to enjoy our home and grounds, the outdoor spa, and the love of our two rescue dogs, Max and Molly who will be your next best friends. We're both great cooks so your mothers won't worry:)

We have two quality bedrooms for guests- One bedroom with a queen bed, the other a single. Both bedrooms share a toilet and vanity separate from us. You'll have the upstairs part of the house, secluded and private from our downstairs living quarters. We share the dining and kit... more inside

Hello, we are Kathryn and Vance (Deputy Principal and Nurseryman).

If you would like to see more of the everyday farming live, come and stay with us for a week in beautiful south Taranaki.

Welcome to New Zealand.

We would love you to join us on a Help X experience - we have hosted so many people over the past 7 years and have loved meeting all the wonderful people from all over the world.

Our family is social, slightly crazy professional kiwis, with the two boys (8 & 12 years), and a 3 year old Samoyed dog named Chilli. We are both University Graduates and working full time. My husband works as a Senior Manager in Banking and I am self employed working from home which sees me travel away from home.

An exchange at our place will provide your own large room with a very comfortable queen sized bed away from the main house, access to wifi, and real kiwi family experiences. We ask for 4 hours work per day, with tasks involving household chores, child minding, gardening, or whatever we may have going on at the time. The work will not be difficult and will be chores that we normally do ourselves.

The kids are adorable, cheeky, funny, challenging, hilarious, energ... more inside
