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 - housework/gardening, 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 like to explore too and have some... more inside

We have a house in Hunterville and a house in Taupo. We live in a small rural town 45 mins in proximity to Palmerston North and Wanganui and 2 and 1/4 hours to Taupo.
We both work but have no children at home as they have grown graduated and working.
It is a small friendly country community with lots of activities such as touch rugby tennis squash, rugby, close to the Rangitikei river for swimming fishing and rafting. 1 hour to Ohakune for skiing in the winter.
We water ski during the summer in Taupo
As our children are away from home now we need some general maintenance on both homes painting inside and out, roof on a rental property that needs attention and painting and a house in Taupo which needs painting and the spouting replaced.
Really we are able to provide accommodation in return for painting and some roofing and plumbing work.

We are a family of 4, Karl and I have been married for 15 years, we love the outdoors and our animals. We have cows, calves dogs cat chickens and a friendly pet goat. We are also a very horse competent family and have horses to ride if that interests you.
Our oldest boy is at boarding school but our youngest is still at home. We have only been living at this property for 6 months and it needs some TLC! The gardens are large but under control, and tidy. If you chose to stay with us we would be interested in some help in the garden and farm work if that interests you.
Karl and I have both lived abroad and we spent 16 months living in singapore with our 2 boys 3 years ago.
Karl can speak very basic Malay and I can speak very basic Japanese. I have spent 2 years living in japan.

We are a small rural outdoor education/camp facility mainly hosting school groups, based a short distance from Wanganui. You will 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.

We have our main camp season during school terms 1 + 4 (October – Dec + Feb – April) 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.
There is always plenty of things that need to be done, from machinery maintenance, grounds maintenance, construction and repairs to helping build a website. The camp season dictates what the priority is but outside of that its generally flexible. I do my best to show my helpers around and usually take them out if they don’t have a vehicle and generally try to include ... more inside
