Hi there,


Our ideal helpxer is single person on a gap year who is looking for a homestay type situation. Non-smokers only and no vegetarians.

We believe in WORK HARD, PLAY HARD and enjoying this beautiful paradise that we live in.

Our 2017 helpxers were really fabulous, so you have a hard act to follow ! We would prefer a friendly easy going person with good English who wants to be part of a family life for your stay. Typical length of agreed stay = 4 nights. If we like you and you like us, then there may be an opportunity to stay longer, such as a month.

Lots of variety in the kinds of work: gardening every second day but also cleaning, painting, filing and office work, running errands, looking after our teenage son during the school holidays, cooking, baking, sorting, fixing etc. Do you have any special skills ?

Gorgeous garden, warm character chalet style home with wooden interior. Comfortable warm room with pretty views and queensize bed. Currently building a treehouse where HelpXers can stay sometime in the future (see photos). Think tiny living. ..

4 hours per day, time negotiable. (suggested: 8.30am-12.30pm) and also help for dinner. in exchange for accomm and good food, wifi and use of hot spa, pool table, swimming pool, running machine etc. In addition, we will do what we can to help you have a fantastic stay and see some of the special places in Rotorua such as lakes, glowworms, markets etc. Borrow one of our bikes to cycle to the CBD or go mountain biking in the forest.

Good location close to the forest and 4km from CBD.

You need a photo on your profile and we need to see that you have taken the time to read our profile and that you use our name(s) on your email. *If you don't use my name, then you cannot stay with us.*

Opportunity to use my art materials (for people staying longer than a week) and have a go at making a linocut print.

Jan works fulltime and I work parttime.
Cheers, hope to hear from you soon. Ingrid
