We are a busy Family of 5. Parents in 30s and 3 boys 7, 6, 3 years old. We live 10min out of Rangiora but go there a few times a week and 30 min from Christchurch.

My Husband is a shift worker and I work from home so it is always very busy. We are looking for a helper to do mainly housework, cooking and childcare but there are also never ending general chores around our property including lawn mowing, painting and gardening (the work is not hard just things we run out of time for). We also have cattle, sheep and a cat.
An extra pair of hands is always appreciated!!

In exchange for 3 hours honest work per day you will get a room in our house with a double bed and ensuite and 1 main meal per day (normally dinner) we would also expect you to help out with meals and cleaning up after meals. There is a large supermarket in Rangiora.

We also have limited Wifi.

Please keep in mind it is a little way out in the country so unless you have your own transport you will have to ... more inside

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).

4ha lifestyle block with 8yr old planting of natives and organic vege garden. You would need to be a non-smoker.
Vegetarian, bilingual household (german and english) comprising of 1 female adult, 4 horses, 2 dogs and 3 cats. 7km from Oxford township, 62 km from Christchurch. Close to scenic walking tracks (Mt. Oxford). Wonderful views and great riding country. In the past most helpers arrived and did not want to go anywhere for weeks.
Own transport needed if you want to get around - however regular lift into Christchurch and Rangiora possible.
I live a busy lifestyle and would like someone who would fit as part of our family of humans and animals. Due to currently working long hours on 3 days of the week you will need to be able to cope with lots of time on your own - doing your own cooking on those 3 days.
I prefer people who are motivated - with a positive, cheerful and relaxed attitude, able to work unsupervised, have initiative (ie picking up jobs when seeing they need t... 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)

Walks & tramps, fishing, skiing,snowboarding,cycling,climbing, bouldering, kayaking or just relaxing in ... more inside
