+++++++In the country near Taupo+++++++

We've had some really great HelpX helpers in the past, will you be then next?

Available now! For garden & general help with cosy, self contained cottage for your own (not shared) accommodation. Prefer if able to stay for a week or a little longer.

We need some help with our large country garden on the banks of the mighty Waikato River.

The help we need involves general gardening, helping with pruning the winter tidy up - tree trimming, clearing etc. A bit of carpentry/building work will help too.

Some knowledge of and experience of gardening and working with garden machines like mowers will be a good idea, but not essential. You also need to like cats! We have 2 who will want to make friends with you.

The help we need will only be about 10 to 12 hours a WEEK. In exchange for that we offer accommodation (but not meals) in a fully equipped and self contained cottage on our property - see it on our website. This accommodation will be yours alone - not shared. We would prefer people who can be here for at least a week.

The photos below are of our cottage (plus one of where we swim in summer at the bottom of the garden)You can see more on our website.

At other times you are completely free to do as you like, use the gardens for relaxing, swim in the river, tour the sights or whatever.

Your own transport is essential as we are about 20 minutes by car from Taupo town (about 40 minutes from Rotorua).

This position is best suited to a couple, but we would consider self reliant singles. Quiet people who are non smokers and not needing excessively loud music are definite requirements. We do not tolerate drugs either in the cottage or on the property.

Although we normally operate as a B&B we have few, if any, guests in the off season so we don't need help with that side of things. The problem is that, with some health issues and other commitments, our garden is not getting quite the attention it needs.

Can you help us?
