We are taking on helpers all year. They are staying in a separate two-bedroom cottage which has a heat pump and is only 30m from our house so our door is always open for a chat and or advice. We try to give couples their own room and the single helpers will be sharing the other room. We are looking for helpers that can stay TWO WEEKS or more with us.
The helpers are asked to help four hours for every night they are staying with us. Some of our helpers will have the opportunity to come with us on Saturdays to the markets and help us sell our produce and for this you will get a day off during the week.

We live on a 4ha orchard on which we are growing plums, strawberries, garlic, feijoas and also vegetables for the local market. So the work our helpers are doing is mainly weeding, picking and pruning.

We are working mainly outside, sometimes it's wet and it is important that you can bring wet weather gear. We will provide gumboots and gloves if needed. The work is in gener... more inside

We are a homestay young family with a young toddler. Dad is an entertainer, mum is a social worker and liitle one is a mix of both! We are a Spanish-French-English household who are looking for a friendly helper (ideally that could speak french or spanish) for the month of December. (1st till around the 21st approx) some flexibility on either side.
We wont require much of you, other than to help us care for our little one during the month of December when we have a lot of work in the evenings, approx 4 days per week. He generally goes to bed between 7.30-8pm and sleeps till the next day, we would require you to help us with caring from around 6ish till his bed time. Then relax and putting your feet up, reading a book, watching a movie etc, until we come home approx 10.30pm, which is when you would be able to go to bed or out. Up to you. We won't really require much more during the day, so if you had a daytime job it would probably suit you perfectly.
Any help would be appreciate... more inside

Would you enjoy spending some time on a small coastal farm in the Bay of Islands?
We have rented out our lovely home for a few weeks over New Year and need help to transform our family home and garden into a clean, tidy and beautifully presented holiday location.
We are looking for help mostly with the garden ( weeding, pruning, tidying, some heavier work) and house (spring cleaning, tidying, some decorating, waterblasting etc) There would be a random selection of other jobs that pop up eg food prep, laundry, work on our yacht eg cleaning/polishing- whatever needs attention!

We are looking for people with great English physically fit,and strong practical and willing to lend their hand to anything that needs doing with enthusiasm. A vehicle is a real bonus.

We are family who work from home with 13 yr old twin boys. We live on a lovely coastal farm with sheep, great water views and 10 minutes from Kerikeri. We love sailing dinghies at our local yacht club... more inside
