We have a private studio with mountain views to accommodate our Helpx guests - photo collage 4 -(still a work in progress to complete bathroom- but one of my Helpx projects). Our last 4 Helpex guests have loved having their own space and the gorgeous outlook to the mountains.

Our family lives on a lifestyle property in beautiful Pleasant Valley (just 10kms mountain side of Geraldine). We homeschool our children, with just the younger two boys still at home - aged 15 and 16

Our property sits in the view of the Four Peaks Mountains, and has trees, creeks, and a spring-fed, home-made swimming pool. We graze sheep on our 12 acre property. We grow strawberries, raspberries, and have two home orchards, as well as a veggie garden.

Ad and Catherine Sintenie moved on their 10 acre property, Coopers Creek, in 1987. The place was everything they were looking for when they emigrated to NZ; a small wooden house with a veranda, a creek and and a cabbage tree in the garden and close to the mountains. Also a great place to bring up their 2 kids, Anna & Jan. (The kids have left home now and are busy producing wonderful grand children.)
Over the years Catherine & Ad changed their 10 acres of "bare" land into a true paradise. Where there was an empty paddock there are now extensive plantings of native trees and shrubs and vegetable gardens. The native planting helps to establish an ecological corridor, a carbon sink and a valuable tree crop, as well as a nice place to live. There are a few sheep to keep the paddock grazed and freezer filled and some hens and a rooster for eggs, garden fertiliser and rural sound effects.

Sadly, in October 2014, Catherine passed away after losing her battle with cancer, so it's now ju... more inside

I have travelled around the globe, enjoy conversing with travellers from all nations, and brushing up on my Japanese, German and French!!

I have recently shifted to Geraldine from a farm near Hinds hence why most of my reviews refer to the farm experience!

I have 2 teenage children, one who is at University and the other is at boarding school

Main jobs are; vegetable & flower gardening and general housework/handyman work

I can pick you up off a bus in Geraldine anytime or Timaru if I am collecting children

Geraldine has great walking tracks, native flora and fauna, fantastic birdlife

I prefer a stay of 2-7 days.
I am a non-smoker

If you are interested in having some days doing Helpx on a farm I can arrange for you to go to my brother in law's farm
