Sorry we can not have people to stay during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Gardening in Waikawa, Picton and explore the Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand.

We are a couple with cat and dog who moved to Waikawa, Marlborough Sounds in 2015. We have a 36 foot launch and love to get away to explore the Marlborough Sounds.

The Marlborough Sounds in summer is warm and in winter is lovely, no wind and generally perfect days. Come and explore the Marlborough Sounds with free accommodation (your own room and separate bathroom) and food. We are a few minutes walk from Waikawa Bay and have a bike for your use.

We are planting natives in an area in Waikawa and need help doing this. The work involved is weeding, cutting back and planting natives. The work is physical and you will need to use gardening tools and your muscles. Our preferred length of stay is a week with 4-5 hours work per day, 5 days per week. House work may be an option if its raining hard.

The photos include some from before we started in 2015 through to natives growing well in 2018.

While my husband is out on the water many days a week, I love to garden, cook and share recipes. I'm keen on food self sufficiency and regenerating NZ bush. In Picton and Waikawa we have an interesting pest eradication project that I am part of.

We have enjoyed having HelpX workers, backpackers and cultural exchange students visit us. Its great meeting people from around the world and sharing ideas, recipes and general knowledge. We enjoy showing people the Marlborough Sounds from our launch and can sometimes arrange sailing and yacht racing on certain days.

Thank you for looking at this listing. Please email me if you are interested.

We are going to be home from September through to mid December 2019 and can take people during this time.
