We're looking for helpers - preferably a couple (or two friends who don't mind sharing a double bed) - to stay with us for around a week.


Family home of a kiwi couple and young children (2 and 6), with garden, chickens and a cat.

We are gradually renovating our house and garden, and the spare room you would be staying in is itself unfinished, but liveable (as can be seen in the photos). Work will mainly include outside garden clearing and basic landscaping work, as well as possibly looking after the chickens, cooking and various household tasks.

One of us speaks some French, though we're interested in other cultures and languages too.

House is within walking distance of town and close to bus stops. Helpers would have their own bedroom, but there is only one room, so if there are two of you, you would need to share.

We're open to different arrangements, but suggest an average of 4 hours work per day, with us providing basic food for breakfast and lunch, and family dinner (which you may sometimes cook). We're generally only looking for helpers for short stays, up to a week.
