DO YOU WANT SOME OF THE FINAL SUMMER SUN- COME TO HAHEI!!!We are looking for 1/2 staff for a start date 06th of April for a minimum of 3-4 weeks - shorter stays maybe possible.
We also have some start dates around the 7th April for 3-4 weeks

Our lodge is centrally situated in the picturesque seaside village of Hahei on the east coast of The Coromandel, New Zealand, home of the world famous Cathedral Cove. Independently endorsed as a wonderful place to stay with a variety of affordable accommodation options to suit every need, Debbie, Richard, Claire & Matt invite you to join them and experience one of the most idyllic locations in New Zealand. Claire is an ex- woofer who spent 2 months with us in 2011. She fell in love with Hahei and the lodge so much so she is now back as our co-manager with her partner Matt. She has first-hand experience of the job and what our helpers are going through as they backpack around New Zealand.

We offer free accommodation in our staff house(couples have their own room) in exchange for approximately 3 hours work each morning 9.30am -12.30. This may vary depending on how busy we are and sometimes we all finish early. Free laundry, free bikes, tea and coffee, free Wi-Fi, free breakfast (bread and spreads) Duties include making beds, cleaning kitchens / bathrooms, vacuuming and washing floors. Work the mornings, relax and enjoy the beach, surrounding areas in the afternoons.
