My insulated and heated home with unlimited wifi internet is on the north eastern fringe of town in a quiet area with a local bus passing the gate every half hour weekdays, less at weekends. Work would mainly be housework, gardening. If you are business or accounting orientated, that could be a bonus too.

Being an urban home I don't have much work available, sometimes 2-3hours/day, sometimes 4 hours/day.
Option 1: If only 2 hours work available, then it's on a "Bed and Breakfast" basis and you would need to provide your own lunch and diner if not eating out. This gives you more free time to do sight seeing anyway.
Option 2: If there's more work available - gardening/painting, then all meals would be included.
Check with me before you come to see which Option is available

Ideally suited for those who have Kayaked the great Whanganui River - over 8,000 people do this in summer! Or those who need a base camp to start exploring the river.

I can pick up from the city bus st... more inside

We live in a quaint 3 bedroom house in the town of a rural area named Hunterville (50 mins north of Palmerston North and 50 south of Whanganui)!! We have 3 acres, on which we have many pets, sheep, goat, miniature pony, chicken, cat and dog. We also have 3 horses which live just down the road from us. We are a small family, for now, just myself, my partner and our cute son Elliot, who is 18 months old!

I am a teacher at the local school and my partner is a shepherd on a nearby farm. I have a lovely friend who looks after Elliot at our place during the week.

Hunterville is a friendly and bustling community, with lots of opportunity for social interaction, especially in the way of sport and drinks at the pub! We are just off the state highway, so very convenient for busses, shops etc.

We would love to have some help about the place in the way of outside and inside chores, such as lawn mowing, gardening, house cleaning and cooking dinner. You will have a room with a double bed... more inside

We run a tourist accommodation business with a difference. We are situated on the banks of the Whanganui River, surrounded by the Whanganui National Park, however the only access to our property is via boat or, the more popular option, by aerial cable car (the flying fox).
We are located 45km from Whanganui township with road access to the cable way via a beautiful scenic 45 min drive. Due to the rural location own transport is preferred as this will also enable you to explore the local area during time off.
We have various accommodation options including camping, glamping and self contained cottages. We also provide catering for some guests. Our accommodation is unique in that it is all built from reclaimed materials and therefore is rustic and quirky! We are off-grid for everything except electricity and have no cell phone access although we do have internet available. We have large gardens and orchards and, whilst not currently certified organic, we work on organic and perma... more inside

We have our camp season starting again so have a mix of work around the camp and in the kitchen. Happy to host a couple, we would add some variety into the mix, possibly some gardening and property care etc depends on your skills.

We are a rural outdoor education/camp facility mainly hosting school groups, based a short distance from Wanganui. You may get the opportunity to try a number of activities while here including kayaking, Stand up paddle board, target shooting, water slide and swimming, archery. Nearby beaches, The Whanganui river and rural life in NZ.

I am open to requests from any travelers with skills and experience that we can make use of during the off season if it looks like it would work for both of us.

My interests are many and varied including Making and re-purposing things, Energy healing, I do Reiki and magnetic healing amongst other things, Meditation, Alternative healing methods, Engineering, Organics and permaculture. I like going to our local m... more inside
