Ideally looking for up to 2 HelpX guests to assist homeowners to manage large garden with weeding, yard tidying and general outdoor maintenance jobs, eg window cleaning, car grooming, firewood splitting and stacking, and other household maintenance related tasks, also keen for some jobs to be done inside the house, painting rooms, or household cleaning.
Ideally would be someone who has some practical knowledge around gardening and general plant knowledge, to identify weeds from specific plants. Or, alternately, for indoors, ability and skills associated with painting and sanding, and not mind getting stuck in doing odd jobs inside, cleaning kitchen cupboards, cleaning ovens etc., and also giving the owners vehicles a comprehensive clean and polish.

We are 20 mins from Christchurch CBD,in the semi rural location of Tai Tapu, 5mins to Lincoln, & the university-we are on route to Banks Peninsula, approx 50 minutes from the Famous Akaroa township...

Its a great location for walking,cycling, and mountain biking, with good transport links to Chch from Halswell or Lincoln township.
We are close to the beaches around the Port hills area ..on average less than 30 mins to sea side.

Tai Tapu is also approx 60-90 mins from the Ski Fields of MT HUTT and PORTERS HEIGHTS.

We can also offer some opportunities for Boating ( cost share on fuel however) in the Lyttleton Harbour - subject to weather conditions, if that should appeal to our Guests.

It is recommended that guests have their own transport,but can supply a bicycle if required for the duration of the stay

We also need to bring down a few large birch trees in sections so anyone with arborist skills would be greatly appreciated.

IF YOU HAVE AN I.T. QUALIFICATION., We are seeking skilled software coders for a current development project .. But your coding languages would need to fit into our project and in exchange ..we would be happy to offer you a HELPX exchange - ideally you would be willing to stay a minimum of 3-4 weeks to help us on this project .. Please mention this offer as part of your HELPX exchange application.

House is located in midst of community of Tai Tapu, Canterbury, just off SH75, so walking distance to local cafes and some retail stores in community.

Both NZ'ers and international guests are welcome to share the HELPX experience with us.

Bring your skills and lets have some fun..!

We look forward to hearing from you soon
and thanks for reading our HelpX listing
