We are a homeschooling family with 2 children, ages 14 and 17, who are still at home (3 older children have left home), and we live on a 20 acre lifestyle block, with a few sheep, cattle, two horses, 3 cats, a piano, a violin and a guitar, and we have a large organic vege garden. We have bicycles you can borrow to explore the neighbourhood or bike to the beach, a horse who is ok for beginners to ride (and another horse you could exercise if you are quite experienced), and table tennis table. Accomodation is in a sleepout, using the bathroom inside and sharing meals with our family. We have broadband internet. We are happy to help you practice your English :)

It's springtime in the garden so we would like someone who is capable there and strong enough to push a wheelbarrow of horse pooh if required. It would also be nice if you can cook dinner occasionally while I do something else.
About 4 hours work per day for food and accomodation. We are happy for you to work flexible h... more inside

This property is 7.5 acres of coastal land with views over the sea... an authentic piece of paradise in Aotearoa. The sun and full moon come out of the sea straight out in front. There are some fallow deer ( two pure white ones), fruit trees, two ponds, and lots of native birds! I would like help mainly with gardening, weeding, mulching and tidying etc - about 4 hours of work per day in exchange for good accommodation & food. Located 1.5hrs drive north of Christchurch on the coast and one hour south of Kaikoura. The little rural town of Cheviot is 10 minutes drive from home. Gore Bay beach is just 500mt down the road - great surf or just relax at the beach. Your accommodation is in the warm top story or a neat little cottage/sleep-out in the garden will also be available soon. Up to a one week stay would be great. Two canoes, surfboard, mountain bike, snorkelling gear etc is available to use.
Host is well travelled, bi-lingual, into art , reading and music.

Nestled in the beautiful Southern Alps is the historic settlement of Cass (approx half way between Christchurch and Greymouth). I am offering private accommodation (separate from the house with own bathroom)in exchange for odd jobs - painting, gardening and lawn mowing.
I also have a horse drawn wagon seen in the photo's which is needing a keen horseperson to drive and keep working.
There is plenty to do in the area including fishing on many of the nearby high country lakes (1.6 km to Lake Sarah) day walks/ tramping in Arthurs Pass National Park and Craigieburn forest Park, skiing on one of the 5 local ski fields, four wheel driving, Scree jumping (down Sugar Loaf). A short drive to Cave stream scenic reserve (one of the south Islands best free activities) and Castle Hill natural rock climbing park (where scenes from Lord of the Rings and Narnia were filmed).

WHO WE ARE:

Ellis and Sanna are a very fun loving, easygoing couple. We believe in living life to the fullest and love to meet new people from different countries and experience their culture. Between us we have travelled extensively and know what it is like to be in a new country far away from home.

Sanna and Michelle (our daughter 19) are from Finland, Ellis from New Zealand. Simba & Ziggy the cats & Sasha the dog.

Over the past 10 years we have built our own magnificent home, situated on top of a small hill overlooking the distant Inland Kaikoura Mountains. Our house is a three story, rustic dwelling with loads of character and Kiwi ingenuity. We have two massive trees up through the center of the house. The back bone structure is made up of huge hand milled beams with a natural timber ceiling. We also have built the biggest rock fire place you probably will see in NZ, which is great to sit around in the evenings.

We are both into health and fitness. Sanna is a pe... more inside

This Iconic Hotel is situated in The Southern Alps on the Great Alpine Highway (SH73) halfway between the east & west coasts of New Zealand's South Island.

We are 90 minutes from both Christchurch (East Coast) & Greymouth (West Coast).

The hotel is set on a hill surrounded by spectacular views of mountains, river & valley.
Our Motels & Lodge are below on the banks of the Waimakariri River.

We are offering accommodation & meals for those happy to help with kitchen &/or housekeeping duties and lawn mowing.

We are interested in hosting helpers wanting to stay long term (4 weeks+ would be great)

Having a vehicle would be an advantage for exploring & enjoying this awesome region.
Of course it is by no means essential.
It is easy to get here from either coast by either west coast shuttles or atomic shuttles.
(just google for their timetables & contact details)

We live on a small block just north of Christchurch with our son Noah, daughter Louisa, Beagle and Labrador dogs, cats, and sheep.

Clarkville is less than 20 minutes from Christchurch airport and we can pick up and drop back there if required. We are able to host females or couples only.

We are in our mid 30's and would enjoy having people of a similar age to stay. We like to interact with our helpers and learn about you and your culture/country. You must have initiative and be able to work unsupervised, but we are happy to write lists of things to do. Cleaning up after yourselves and helping with meals is part of the deal. Helpers must have host references.

We are looking for some help with various odd jobs around the place like:
gardening
weeding
lawn mowing
fencing
gathering/cutting firewood
Irrigation and ditch digging
Dog walking
Pruning
Babysitting

We have push bikes and helmets available and there is a lovely reserve with a stream nearby which... more inside

If you enjoy working with horses and an outdoor lifestyle we would like to hear from you.
My husband and I run a small horse and cattle farm, backing on to Forestry and walking tracks. 10klms from Rangiora.10 mins drive from beach.
Our horses are trained for and compete in Endurance Racing,so helpers must be experienced in riding horses in wide open spaces at speed.

Does exploring the surrounding countryside on horse back and travelling with horses appeal?

The help we require involves day to day care of horses and riding out plus some gardening and farm work.

Accommodation is a private self contained sleepout suitable for couples, your own vehicle is essential as we are out of town.


This is our busiest time of year so if you are keen we have plenty to keep you occupied and would love to hear from you.

We are fully booked through till August 2013.
