We enjoy our Helpers, and they tell us that they enjoy being here. You can enjoy independent accommodation in a self-contained one-room bunkhouse, allowing privacy and comfort. You also have access to a private little picnic area just for yourselves.

We're in a remote location accessible only by boat. We will provide transportation from Havelock, Marlborough to here and back, which in itself is a fun experience. There's seafood for you to gather or catch, and hills, forest, trails, and beach to explore. You can use the dinghy and kayaks to explore or fish. You can have all the mussels you wish to eat/prepare.

We're entirely off-grid: solar power, etc. But, we do have cell coverage and there's wifi.

We provide accommodation, wild game meat, herbs, and some groceries. We hope you will join us for dinner 2 evenings a week. In exchange we would like 22 hours of help a week (timing flexible): yard care, gardening, native forest restoration, trail clearing, building maintenance, housekeeping. We try to match chores to Helpers' interests and abilities.

You must be able to lift 20 kg. No smoking. No drugs, no way, no how.

We hope you like to laugh a lot! There is a lot of exploring and fun to be had around here and we welcome your participation at this special location. We will also reply to you regardless of vacancy, so you can plan your time in New Zealand.

We look forward to welcoming you to this little corner of the world.
