Kia ora kotou
We are a busy family with 5 sons (9, 12, 17, 19, 23 years - with the oldest being overseas) and live in Diamond Harbour on the Banks Peninsula.
We have a beautiful home and our Micro-Farm, as we call it ... a garden, some chickens and we grow organic children :-) There's always something happening in our house, but we also just enjoy the simple village and community life. We all love to have visitors, talking, eating together, sharing our home and getting to know new people.
And of course, there is always something to do in our household! We love doing it ourselves, but sometimes it is nice to have a little help, for example with work in the house, cooking, in the garden, with the children or just being there to give a little backup.
Diamond Harbour is a small village on the beautiful Banks Peninsula, no shops, but great community and lots of nature.

We are a German family with lots of travel experience in NZ and local knowledge and we are happy to support you!

Looking forward to hear from you and meet you!

PS: Uebrigens, wir freuen uns auch sehr uber deutsch-sprachige HelferInnen. Gerade unsere Kinder finden es ab und zu sehr nett, sich mal wieder in deutsch zu unterhalten :-)

The basics:
Accomodation, food and WIfi provided in exchange for work.
Work depends really on what's happening at the time you are here, but could be gardening, household support, taking kids to the bus in the morning, sometimes looking after kids, cooking and baking (if you like... We love when helpers can cook sometimes for us :-) )

We like helpers to stay at least 2 weeks with us, otherwise it is a bit too disruptive for our family.


We have a separate guest room with ensuite, but only one Queensize bed.
We are connected to the Chch public transport via ferry and bus, so no need for a car.
