we are needing a couple of helpers for a few days. We live 1/2 an hour from the famous Tongariro Alpine Crossing.
We are a family of 4, with 2 busy children aged 12 & 8, we live 10 minutes north of Turangi and 20 mins south of Taupo, on a 1/4 acre section with our friendly dog & cat.

We would love to offer our new insulated sleepout and small dinning area with fridge, hotplate, jug & toaster. Both are situated next to a bathroom that has a toilet, shower, washing machine & sink. You will have to share the areas with other travellers as we have campermate guests staying in their motorhomes or camping.

We are needing some help with gardening, lawn mowing, removing scrub & branches, clearing weeds.(It would be ideal if you are able to use a scrub bar to clear some land or a weed eater). Please be aware that most of our work will be outside in any weather but we can provide raincoats and gumboots if needed. We do have some inside jobs like sewing, some general cleaning and entertaining the kids too.
If you like cooking then we would love for you to cook some meals for us too! (We are happy to eat vegetarian meals)

We are situated just 2 mins walk from Lake Taupo & the Tauranga-Taupo River in a very private & beautiful setting.

If you would like to stay with us we recommend having your own transport as we are isolated & hitching is quite difficult but we do have a general store, garage & a fish & chips takeaway shop a few minutes walk away.

We are very flexible as to when you do your hours so you can get the most out of your stay here.

You will be provided breakfast food for you to make yourselves and dinner would be eaten with the family in return for approximately 4 hours per day of help. You will need to make sure you bring your own lunches as we are not always home during the days but some food will be provided.

We are only 40 mins away from the stunningly beautiful Tongariro Crossing and you are most welcome to join us for any outings we go on that are of interest to you. (ie boating, kayaking)

We love living in this area and can assist you with seeing the best of what this amazing place has to offer.

Sorry, NO SMOKING anywhere on the property!
