We are heading into the joys of spring and summer and are looking for all sorts of help. We are a small lodge with a restaurant and bar in the middle of the Pelorus Sounds. The help required is varied, and weather dependent, so we are looking for people who are flexible and who don't mind trying new things. Examples of what helpers have done so far, are things like helping with visiting tourists, helping in the restaurant, and housekeeping, upgrading the paths, landscaping, and improving some of the facilities. The rewards are many. The location is perfect if you enjoy hiking, fishing, kayaking, or swimming. We have seen orca and dolphin in our bay as well as rather beautiful stingray. There is also a lot of birdlife. It is just a beautiful and remote part of the world. You have to see it to fully appreciate it. If you are interested in helping any time from October on, please message me, but please note because we live in a place that is off grid with no roads ( access only by boat) we can't really cater to special diets.

As a couple, we run this business as a family affair, our helpers are welcomed as part of the family, we work together and eat together and share our experiences as we work. We need different types of help at different times of year. At the moment we need general help in the restaurant, bar and kitchen as well as housekeeping help. The schedule is a flexible 5 hours per day ( six days a week ) in return for accommodation and meals.

If you love the outdoors and don't mind total peace and quiet with starry nights and no traffic. This is the perfect place for you. :) have a look at our website and see for yourself.

We look forward to welcoming you to Te Rawa very soon.
