We are in the process of setting up 'glamping'accommodation. At the moment we are focusing on completing some building projects like a outdoor kitchen, shed, concreting and plastering. We also want to improve our vegetable garden and need to build raised beds and enclosures.The site is off grid but we have solar lights in the main bach (cottage). To get cell phone coverage you have to walk to the top of the hill.We now have the internet available,it can be purchased for a day or a week at a time. The property is regenerating native bush but has wilding pines and wattles that we are cutting out. The work available is mainly physical and will involve building, digging, clearing scrub and fallen trees etc. I am also using earth bags to build retaining walls. These need to be plastered.We get all day sun here and have plenty of firewood to keep warm. Leisure activities in the area include bush walks, beaches, boating, fishing etc.We also have a house in Nelson and have some work availa... more inside

Hi, I'm Rich, by name anyway! I live 12km South from Takaka, on the side of the valley, with beautiful mountain and valley views, and a walk to a swimming hole at the river below. I have a 13 yr old boy, a dog, a cat and a cow. Since 2016 I am now running the whole property on my own, which is quite daunting, and having my boy about half the time. This means I really need independently capable guests! Guests share daily household life, cooking cleaning etc. Accommodation is in your own beautiful 5m diameter yurt. I have a tipi and yurt making business on the land, check out the website, though this has it's own workers so help is not needed there. I have to work at the business several days each week, so guests also have to be happy working alone sometimes ... I am not growing much veggies these days, lots of fruit and timber trees, and a few animals. Outside physical work is varied land maintenance with creative building projects. I have need for someone experienced on a scrubcutt... more inside

The days are shorter and still so many things we like to do. So we can use your help
A lot of gorse/barbery to tackle, piles that need to be burned (and watched), fencing repairs, clean up paddocks, dispose of leaves, improve chickenhouse and besides outside work, we are currently having on an inside renovation with buildingwork.

And if you stay longer you can help to continue with the many tasks available on our farm. Like cleaning up the paddocks from branches and pest control. You need to love animals as we have a lot running around. Including 2 doggies. Take a look on our profile for more info.


We are established on a private 30 acre lifestyle block in Takaka Valley, less than ten minutes from the rural township of Takaka, the main centre for Golden Bay and a great base if you want to visit places like Abel Tasman National Park. Imagine a region with endless variety, where golden beaches, alpine valleys and fishing rivers.

The property is 10km south of Takaka so a c... more inside

We are a semi retired couple living on the forest margin, growing vegetables and basket willow. We invite travellers to share our little slice of paradise in exchange for help maintaining our garden and basket willow plantation. We eat mostly organic food and while we eat some meat we can accommodate vegetarians. The famous Mussel Inn is just down the road and we are 5 mins drive from the beach.
Work includes weeding and maintenance of our willow plantation and domestic gardening and property maintenance. Our preference is usually short stays with the option of extending. In return we offer comfortable caravan accommodation, a hot shower and good food. As we are both away from the property sometimes we like our helpers to be capable of working unsupervised.
It is easier if our helpers have a vehicle or are willing to hitch hike as there is no public transport.
Our usual arrangement is 4 hours work for food and accommodation. We provide food for breakfast and lunch so you c... more inside
