Hi.. We are Stephen born NZ'er.. and Nicole who is from Malaysia.. We are both very well travelled and enjoy meeting interesting people from around the world..

We have recently moved to our house right on the Hokitika river.. 5 kms from the centre of Hokitika.. and we are nearing the end of a big renovation job but could still use some help with painting, gardening, landscaping etc..

So if you can garden, paint, build or have any other skills that are useful we would love to put you up for a few days in return for some help..

We have our fully self-contained house-bus on the property that we can put you up in.. away from the mess of the house.. And also has unlimited Wi-Fi :-)

The main "cycle trail" goes right past our house, so if you enjoy riding we have a couple of bikes you can use while you are here.. and a bit later we should have a couple of kayaks for you to have a bit of river fun..

We prefer people to stay at least a few days.. and we would expect you to work 4 hours per day.. plus some assistance with meals.. in return for accommodation and most meals..

You can also do 8 hours and have next day off, if you want to do an all-day outing somewhere..

It is better if you have your own vehicle.. as there is no public transport and we are about 5ks from town. Although if you are happy to use the bikes.. or Shank's Pony (Kiwi for walking) while you are here, we would be happy to collect you from town. We also prefer non-smokers..

Cheers and hope to see you sometime soon.
