A 19 cabin, 125 site camping ground and backpackers lodge. With large social dining room open fire, laundry, communal bathroom/kitchen facilities, broadband internet and free WIFI access.
Located in Ahipara right at the start of the famous 90-mile beach. Great place to base yourself to explore the Far North, only 10 minutes drive from Kaitaia and 5 minutes walk to the beach and Ahipara / Shipwreck Bay.
Duties can include: reception, cleaning, gardening, painting, landscaping work, maintenance and building projects and other odd jobs, something to suit your skills or to challenge you! Depending on the accomodation 2 - 4 hrs work per day. Paid work is available with extra hours sometimes.
In return we offer free internet access and accommodation in cabins or a bed in an en-suite bedroom in our spacious and clean backpackers hostel or simply a space to put your tent or campervan. We are very flexible if you need time off for day-trips up to Cape Reinga or to go surfing, fishing etc.
