We are a family living in Opua in the beautiful Bay of Islands. We are currently looking for two people who can help us with some school holiday childcare, our major wooden boat renovation project and some bits of housework. This would start straight after Christmas in late December.

Opua is on the coast about 6km south of Paihia. It is a small settlement with a shop, café, cruising club and a sizeable marina and boatie community.

We live within walking distance of the centre of Opua on a quiet street with a view over the river. Our helper accommodation is within our house but on the ground level, so our helpers can have their own space. It has been converted from the garage/store area and is basic but comfortable with it’s own bathroom, queen bed and couch.


We would like to host two helpers and our accommodation would suit couples. Obviously you have to like kids (ours are age 9 and 6) and preferably one person would have a background in looking after kids. It would also be great(but not essential) if one person had some carpentry skills or an interest in boats.

We would ask you each work the equivalent of 4 hrs per day although this would usually be structured so that you worked full days and had full free days rather than doing 4 hours every day. We would provide breakfast and dinner each day plus lunch on the days you worked. We also have wi-fi you can use.
