We are a happy family of four living near the beautiful mountains and lakes of Otago.

We have four beautiful dogs and lots of animals that need caring for. Many of which have been orphaned and hand reared so are very friendly.

It's really important to us that you are prepared to have fun, interact with our children and love and respect animals.

Things that we have learnt from having helpers stay in our home:
*We do not enjoy having visitors constantly on their devices/phones in our living area and encourage you to make the most of the beautiful lakes and walks on your time off.
* We apologise for not speaking your language and would like you to please make efforts to speak English when in our company
*Food is incredibly expensive and we will feed you well. We do expect you to ask if you want to help yourself to anything other than what is offered

We also run our cabinet making business 'Wanaka Furniture design' from home.

We ask for 4 hours work a day wood splitting and stacking,cleaning, gardening/animal care/painting plus help with daily chores (meal preparations or general tidy up) in exchange for food and accommodation.
It's expected that you tidy up after yourself and be helpful at mealtimes and use your initiative to empty bins,sweep floors ect??

There are sometimes other young travelers staying within our community that we can connect you with.

Your own transport is essential & cooking skills are welcome! Email & tell us a bit about yourself.

Please be aware that you need a work permit to do Helpx in New Zealand.
PS. No smokers please.
