We are in Endeavour Inlet, right on the Queen Charlotte Track. Our home is surrounded by native bush, small streams with views over the sounds and is a convenient stop off point for people wanting to walk the Queen Charlotte Track or short sections of it

Our property is a small life style block with a holiday house, 3 sleep outs, 2 organic vegetable gardens in the beautiful Marlborough Sounds. Apart from a beehive we are not engaged in any sort of farming but are active members of the local conservation trust. We are keen conservationists and are happy to share our knowledge of the area and keen to learn about other cultures and places.
While we spent about 10 days a month here we do not live here permanently hence there are always plenty of tasks that need doing from mowing lawns to painting and maintaining our buildings and firewood chopping.

Our preference is for mature, independent individuals prepared to work 4 hrs in the morning. We have a few gardening, building & painting projects we'd love help with. The rest of the day is yours to explore the Queen Charlotte Track, kayak in the Inlet or just relax. Contact us if you are keen to come in March or April. Tell us about your skills and interests.

Endeavour Inlet is accessible by boat only but there is a Lodge within 15 minutes walk that is open most of the year. You will arrive via water taxi; there are four scheduled departures to/from Picton every day during the summer months and two a day for the rest of the year. You will need to cover the costs of travelling here (payable to the water taxi). Alternatively , you can arrive by foot or bike as we are on the Queen Charlotte walking track which is a famous NZ walkway and mountain bike track. Once you're here you'll have free meals and accommodation. We have no phone connection (while there) and limited internet facilities.
You will have your own sleep out with outside toilet, shower and washing facilities.
