We (John and Cher) live in a open sunny modern home at Cable Bay, near Nelson. Your room is lovely and comfortable. We live on the edge of a tidal estuary and it is a short walk to the swimming beach. We have kayaking and walking tracks, fishing and snorkelling close by. It is a 25 minute drive to Nelson closest town. The nearest shop is 10 minute drive away or 30 minutes by bike. We have wifi but no mobile reception.

The work you would be doing includes home gardening, weeding, clearing paths, odd jobs around our half acre section and organic garden, a little house work (we have a cleaner), and home maintenance. Some practical skills in building and use of machinery such as weed eaters would be great. We prefer experienced helpers who enjoy working unsupervised on their own as we are often working. Cher works as a communications trainer and mentor/mediator and John is a Museum Educator.
We normally cook whole plant based based diet from our vegetable garden, supplemented by fish. We eat very little meat or dairy

We like our helpers to stay minimum of a week. No smokers please.
In order to help us make a decision about your stay, we always look at your previous host references. We appreciate any efforts you make to provide this information. Please only apply if you have a current a work permit.
If you need time to look around the region,we are flexible with working hours and days. Come prepared to potentially work for a whole days until a job is done and take the equivalent whole days off.
We are sure you will love our little piece of paradise and we look forward to meeting you.
Cher Williscroft and John Campbell
