Kia Ora and welcome to Ratanui

Dianne and Stefan would be pleased to host HelpX clients - Ratanui is a beautiful property consisting of 8.5 acres of 'park-like' grounds and large gardens plus a small accommodation environment comprising of 10 motel units. We are situated 6 minutes drive from the city centre (realistically you would require your own transport as too far to walk).

We would love to be able to offer some Taranaki enthusiasm in return for a mixture of hospitality, gardening, housework and handyperson skills.
Presently we are looking for help with the motel units and gardening to 'spring clean' (well autumn clean really), cleanup, cutback and feed the garden as we have an event next summer in garden

We would require 4 hours per day or alternatively we are very flexible for full day's work and then days off. In the past helpers have worked 6 days/week.
We can provide you with your own private studio accommodation (queen bed), with kitchenette, bathroom... more inside

Sonya and I are a friendly couple who have travelled extensively ourselves before returning home to New Plymouth 10 years ago. We have 2 young sons Dylan who is 8 Clyde who is 6 years old. We are looking for someone with gardening and housecleaning skills or enthusiasm to help us gets the place into shape. We have basic accommodation for 1 person in a sleepout (toilet and shower in main house so it would likely better suit a male)and food to offer in exchange for 4 hours of work per day with the option to work full days and have days off. We will happily cater for vegetarians if required. We love meeting and sharing experiences with long term travellers. We live near to the centre of New Plymouth (1/2 hr walk).

We need an active person to assist with some gardening and au-pair work while I work part time offsite two or three days per week.Mid January 2018 on...

Having a vehicle is useful. We have good bikes. We are near the coast in a warm energy efficient off grid home with a large garden. Non smokers only. We often enjoy the ocean, surfing; and take part in events around Taranaki region which you can join us in.

A small but regular amount of au pair and gardening work by responsible person(s) in exchange for accommodation with regular paid work assisting with getting my daughter to school. Prefer an active good learner with an understanding or keenness to learn about sustainability and rural skills. We do enjoy ourselves! Piano in house.
Women preferred (my daughter Bella-13 lives with me). Beaches, mountain and cafe's not far away. Working horses.Prefer someone able to stay a few weeks and able to explore and enjoy the region.

Cheers, steve and Bella.

A sleep-out is available which is situated in the garden and would suit a single person or a couple - all amenities are in the main house.

We are situated 5km from the township of Urenui which consists of a local pub, cafe, 4 Square, takeaways, gas station and Mike's local Brewery just a few km out of the village. There are numerous beaches 5-10mins from here. In less than half an hour you can be enjoying all the great things New Plymouth has to offer (beautiful Mount Taranaki, world famous Pukekura Park, the Coastal Walkway, Len Lye Art Gallery to ... more inside

Our property is an 11 acre property 500 metres from the foothills of Mt Taranaki, elevated at 420m above sea level. There are spectacular views of the Taranaki coastline and beyond. We practice organic and permaculture principles and include beef stock, milking cow, ducks, free-range chickens and four dogs.

We have spent the past year building our house and haven't had time for work around the property, so we need help with:
Vegetable garden maintenance and planting
Building work, erecting a wind break around vegetable garden area, tree release in shelter belts, landscape planting, any mechanical knowledge would be an advantage with machinery as we have a broken down tractor, ride-on lawnmower and lawnmower that require an overhaul.
