We have availability to host from 23 January!

In between doing beautiful hikes, surfing our uncrowded waves or wandering along empty beaches, we would love your help assisting with firewood, gardening, cleaning and childcare for our son.

We are a family who love the outdoors and our alternative lifestyle here on Great Barrier Island. We live in a house that is completely off the grid and runs 100% on solar power. Our water comes directly from the sky or from the stream, we have a big vegetable patch and most of our meat and fish comes from the island`s land and sea.

Andy is a builder and Deborah runs a stargazing tour company. In our spare time we fish, dive, surf, garden or play on the beach with our son.

We moved into this property in March 2017 after spending a year renovating (thanks to all the help from wonderful helpXers). But there`s always help required, so get in touch!

In exchange for 5 hours work a day, 5 days a week, plus general helping out (like doing the dishes) we will provide your meals and accomodation. We prefer a 2 week stay, longer stays may be possible if there is plenty of work and we are all enjoying each other's company. We have 2 kayaks, mountain bikes, boogie boards and a surf board that you are welcome to use too.

Your room has is a comfortable king sized bed, warm duvet and pillows. We are usually up around 7:30am ready to get into the day at 8.

We have family meals and eat meat and fish, so if you are vegetarian, that`s cool and there will be plenty to eat, but you will need to let us know in advance, and help out with food preparation.
