Kia ora helpers!
Our beautiful home is in the middle of Honeymoon Valley, surrounded by native bush - remote and relaxingly quiet! We built this house with mud-bricks from local clay and we created roof gardens.

We live 20 min drive from Taipa, Doubtless Bay, 330 km North of Auckland. The subtropical Far North of NZ is the 'birthplace' of New Zealand/Aotearoa, as we know it today and has significant historic sights and stories.

We are part of a land-care group protecting our forest and native birds by trapping predators and we eradicate invasive plants to make room for native bush. We have no TV and limited WIFI. There is a river to swim in and lots of nature to explore. We have a piano, a guitar, and drums. We like music, singing, nature, films, literature and art.

We need help with chopping fire wood, gardening, orchard work, renovating (fixing wood work, painting), sewing, cleaning, maintenance, collecting seeds, chickens, home-brew beer, baking bread, in season - making vinegar and bottling fruit.

As exchange for your help, 4-5 hours per day, you get full accommodation - your own room and bathroom - breakfast, sandwich lunch, cooked dinner, mostly organic, whenever possible with veggies & fruits fresh from my garden. If you need extra snack food or you need special diet (e.g. gluten free, allergies) please bring this with you. On days you take off and go sightseeing you provide your own food.

Families with children are welcome, I have plenty of toys from my grandchildren, phone for arrangements.
Cheers Gerlinde and Christoph
