We run a small accommodation at the great surf beach of Piha. We have hosted many young travellers from all around the world in our work for accommodation scheme.
Over winter we prefer a minimum of 3 weeks stay or longer.

We are two women and welcome all clean living people to our place. No drugs or big drinkers please. Great for surfers and trampers, but we do expect 3 hours work per day.

People who are independent although friendly and with initiative and who can hold a good conversation when needed. Our volunteers love it here. We have had wonderful people who never want to leave over the last 15 years! Its sort of glamping, but not really! You have your own little caravan or cabin with basic cooking equipment. We do not provide food for you, but in saying that, we do share some meals with you:). Our travelers like their independence too.

Piha is a small coastal village so if you are wanting night clubs and lots of bars etc, then its not for you. If you love nature, surfing, tramping, coffee, smaller communities and want to get out of the city, then Piha is for you. :). It is quiet in winter and that means mainly caring for the gardens and our house. Fixing things, painting etc

You can run down and check the surf half a minute away and if its no good go for a walk or a run etc. There are lots of wonderful tracks around Piha and it is safe.

You must be a good cleaner and be thorough. We only have 3 units so its not too hard. Sometimes you must be prepared to get hot and dirty mucking in working in the bush/garden, or painting or cleaning our house etc.

At the moment, we need good house cleaners,people good at fixing/building and gardeners. We prefer people to stay 3 weeks or more. It takes time to settle in and short stays don't suit us, especially over the summer when we have lots of young travelers wanting to come and work with us.

Piha is a great little village and if you love surfing and swimming, it is fabulous. Only 45mins from Auckland central, so a car is helpful as there is no transport in and out of the city and with only one expensive shop. We can pick you up at the Glen Eden train station.

Our last 3 woofas were here for almost 5 months. Come and see this little paradise.
