Kia Ora all we are Jo & Rusty, our property is on Riverbank Road in Wanaka, nestled in 7.5 acres split between our yurt accommodation businesses- Oasis & personal use.

Alongside being busy with the businesses we strive to care & keep developing the rest of the property into usefulness through installing fencing, irrigation, the growing & planting of trees & vegetables & other ideas as they crop up!

Currently our main "help" roles involve gardening, landscaping & general property maintenance, i.e. weeding

Some cleaning and general jobs are often on the cards & if you have any trade skills or experience - carpentry, building etc then there's plenty of jobs with a bit more flair that we can work on together.

We have a fabulous self-contained bedford house-bus as our helper accommodation, which provides helpers with a great private space. It's important helpers are happy living semi-rurally and semi off the grid. The bus has a low voltage power connection, fireplace, kitchen, shower, bedroom and lounge area and uses an external composting toilet.

We generally host couples, but still touch base if your a solo traveller. We start all exchanges on a 2 weeks basis and if it's working for all we can offer space for up to 2 months.

We offer accommodation including internet & laundry in exchange for 12 hours work per person/ per week. We do not have capacity to include meals

We work together so hours are worked over 4 days 10am-1pm giving you your afternoons/ evenings plus 3 whole days a week to find paid work or simply play & enjoy the mountains, tracks, trails, Rivers & Lakes of Wanaka!

About us: we love biking, snowboarding and being outdoors! We live communally with 2 other couples and our 18 month old rugrat, the property is sociable but low key

Feel free to get in touch for more information
Wanaka is a great place to spend some time; hiking, climbing, biking, playing in or on the lake & enjoying our beautiful mountains (we have bikes you can use & lots of advice on the area!)

- we have space from today 7th January for a couple :)
