The help we need involves general gardening, helping with pruning the winter tidy up - tree trimming, clearing etc. A bit of carpentry/building work will help too.

Some knowledge of and experience of gardening and working with garden machines like mowers will be a good idea, but not essential. You also need to like cats! We have 2 who will want to make friends with you.

This location is great for accessing the best of the area, whether it be Taupo town`s activities or the mountains for skiing, lake Taupo, hiking or exploring the latest bike tracks.

As an experienced teacher of English as a second language, if you wish I can help improve your English during your stay. Mostly though, we hope to be fair and flexible in that we get help through your work and you enjoy some of Taupo`s lovely attractions and activities while staying with us.

We can host for 2 - 4 nights at a time or longer.

OWN TRANSPORT is preferred for our helpers as we are 14km from Taupo township. Sometimes, we will take helpers who don`t have a car and will drive them into town on their day`s off, but this needs to be arranged beforehand.

You would have your own private bedroom. The accommodation is either one of the two spare bedrooms in our house. Helpers have a separate bathroom and tea/coffee making facilities. It is a big house and there is plenty of room!

At the end of that road travel through a gateway that turns left and continue to drive until you see the house.if you are traveling by bus get off at Waiouru let us know details so we can pick you up. There is now WiFi.

Our family is spread over two locations and you are welcome to spend time with us in both horse farms.

At the moment we are interested in having some support with our horses in Ohakune....you would have a chance to ride, help feed the horses and assist with their grooming and care.

Little bit about us:

In Ohakune, we live close to Mt Ruapehu and the Tongariro Crossing and just 4 kms from the picturesque holiday town. We have 10 horses for our year round horse trekking. We welcome you to come and enjoy the challenge of learning new skills and sharing your own. We are happy to host helpers to work with the horses, especially if you are a rider and with experience. For those who wish to learn to ride we are happy to give you the opportunity. If you are not a rider that is ok too as there are plenty of farm tasks to be done each day as well as helping in the garden.
To find out more about us chueck out our website and see our YouTube video below.
