We live on a small block just north of Christchurch with our son Noah, daughter Louisa, Labrador, Beagle, cats, and sheep.

Swannanoa is about 25 minutes from Christchurch airport and we can pick up and drop back there if required.

We are aged in our early 40's and would enjoy having people of a similar age to stay. We like to interact with our helpers and learn about you and your culture/country. You must have initiative and be able to work unsupervised, but we are happy to write lists of things to do. Cleaning up after yourselves and helping with meals and dishes is part of the deal. Helpers must have host references.


We have had our hedges pruned and there's a few of branches to pick up. Chainsaw skills are a plus.

We also could do with a help organising the sleepout and garage at our new house.

If you don't mind outside work there's a bit of garden tidying to do.

There is a fence to get painted and some childcare help might be needed too.

We have bikes and helmets available and lots of places to walk the dogs. Wireless broadband is also available for those who do not spend all day on their laptop.

Regular lifts into Christchurch are available, as Chris works near the city. We are looking for an average of 4 hours work per day per person in return for accommodation and main meals. We are happy for you to combine hours to take time off. We have very comfy accommodation in the house with a queen bed, lots of reading material and music.

Please contact us by email only.
