I am extremely fortunate to be living “The good life” on my little patch of urban paradise, situated in New Plymouth – “Beneath the Mountain and Beside the Sea”. “My Patch” is a very private well hidden ½ an acre of mostly gardens, with mature trees, fruit trees, large vegetable patch, a greenhouse, a shade house and 5 chickens. Lots of wonderful bird-life with Tui and Kereru visiting almost daily.

I grow mushrooms in the shade house at warmer intervals throughout the year and as many varieties of vegetables, fruit and herbs as I can fit into available spaces. There is always plenty to do as my garden is always undergoing “renovations” as I endeavour to introduce raised bed gardening.

Would love to host an engineer type person whom would be interested in helping build a solar powered drying room for dehydrating food.

From time to time I require assistance with activities such as pruning, harvesting, building simple wooden garden structures, chopping/gathering firewood... more inside

FULLY BOOKED UNTIL 4th JANUARY
Looking for independent active travellers that enjoy the outdoors and are motivated morning people, we start early.

Welcome we love meeting travellers and have travelled extensively ourselves.


Our farm is 23kms/30mins north of New Plymouth at Huirangi. There is no public transport, bikes are available. We don't go in to town often so having your own transport would be an advantage. Though we can pick you up on arrival and drop you back into town when you leave. We enjoy taking you out and about to explore the area and do some hiking too, it will depend on our workload and how long you are staying. Prefer you to stay at least one week.

At the farm we live in a shed (one room) so the accommodation is in our campervan (see photo's). Toilet & hot shower is outside. Though the accommodation is basic, the view is wonderful. It is a beautiful place. We will provide good meals.

We try to be good hosts and in return we expect you to join us in... more inside

We have a vacancy from 6th Deceember 2017.

We have a warm, sunny single bedroom that would suit a person interested in being close to the New Plymouth city centre, near Brooklands Park and the stunning Pukekura Park. 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 wifi and your own tv/dvd etc.

We need around 3 hours help per day. We are looking for someone to help with laundry, basic cleaning around the house and weeding in the garden.

The bed is a king single and it has a trundler so two can stay if required but it would be tight. Whatever works for you. Expectation when 2 people stay is that help is around 2.5 hours each.

We also have a lovely, friendly large dog who enjoys company and we would appreciate you being able to play and interact with her in a happy positive manner.

We have 4 children, 1 at university and 3 at high school. They are indepen... more inside

I am looking for somebody to live in and pick my two school age children up from school in the afternoon as well as assist with some light house duties. I work during the day. We have a detached bedroom with a toilet and would provide meals. We have two dogs and a cat so must like animals. My girls like being out and about so a drivers license would be good but not essential.
In the photos you can see my two children , our dogs Chipper and Fletcher. Also there is a photo one of our bikes which you would be able to use for a ride along the coast (beach 2 min) or into town (6 min) or whatever you like. We do request a minimum of one week stay as this makes the most of the experience for everybody.

We are excited to hear from you,
Edie, Lola and Steph

KIA ORA / GREETINGS .... Yes, I am currently able to host helpers.

If you are keen - Let me know your skills. The 'help' is varied and depends on what projects I am working on ...
I am re building the property's gasometer .. a bit of cunning engineering is needed here.

I am also painting the outside of The Cottage. Water blasting a concrete tank too.

I am also needing to sort my library and catalogue my art books. But, firstly - I am re painting the book shelves.

I am always doing some gardening - weather dependent - and inside cleaning.
The garden beds always need a weed and I often
mow the lawns.

A Helper/s with some I.T. experience / knowledge would be wonderful.

Helpers when visiting the mountain often write up their days visit and also we then post a few photos on the Taranaki vista web site.
So, check out my mountain live view web camera website.

I am also interested in creating & making short videos - only if you have good video skills.
