Hi... summer is here and our property needs our help. We have AVAILABILITY FROM 13 to 22 JANUARY & again FROM 3rd FEBRUARY. Please get in touch if you would like to help us.

Paradise between the sea & the hills, in sunny Te Horo on the beautiful Kapiti Coast (see photo of Kapiti Island from Te Horo Beach). We've built a comfortable place for you to stay (the purple cabin)... now come & help us get the rest of the property up to scratch. Come and help us with a few projects... always lots of weeding, gardens to maintain, paddocks to improve, and there are jobs in the vege garden & orchards.

We have cows, chooks, ducks & cats. Only small numbers and very easy to manage. We grow as much food & meat as we can and enjoy a healthy outdoors life.

I bake our bread & sometimes make cheese, bake amazing scones and cakes and would like to share and learn from your culture.

We ask for five hours effort per day in return for staying at our place with great food, a warm bed and your own space. NO SMOKERS ONLY.

Please let us know if you have food preferences (vegetarian, gluten free etc.), we can adapt menus... but need to know before you get here.

Hope to see you soon.

PS We can collect you from Waikanae bus or train station... less than an hour north of Wellington, on New Zealand's North Island.
