We are a family of 3 (mum and 10yr old twin girls) and have a small lifestyle block with a few cows, sheep, goat, hens and 2 cats. I work from home around the girl's school and sport commitments.

We are looking for a female that will fit into our closeknit family unit to help with garden clearing & weeding, some household spring cleaning, and possibly stripping wallpaper / preparing some areas of the house ready for painting. Helping with normal everyday things like meal preparation and dishes is expected. You will have all meals in exchange for 4.5 hours work per day. We are happy for you to combine work hours so that you can have a whole day off for sightseeing or adventures in the Taupo area.

We are pretty relaxed, but hardworking and we expect that you will join in as part of the family. You will have your own room with a double bed and we ask that this is kept tidy.

We are a 25 minute drive from Taupo township, and currently head into town two afternoons a week af... more inside

We welcome your enquiry as we enjoy having helpers to stay. Please give us the exact dates you wish to come and stay.

Lake Taupo is a beautiful place with so many activities to experience. We can help you plan your Tongariro Crossing trip and all the other outdoor activities.

Market day is Saturday morning and you will be helping Martin with selling eggs and other produce.

We do not have a farm but you will be helping with seeding, gardening, hydroponics as well as housework and other chores.

Occasionally there is heavy stuff to carry so you need to be okay with that.

When you work for a whole day you have a whole day off. When you work for the morning you will have the afternoon off.

On your days off we prefer it if you go out and see all the sights of Taupo rather than stay in your room all day. We will let you know all the things there are to see and do.

We provide all your evening meals and breakfast.

On the days you are working we supply your lunch.... more inside
