We are a couple with an 9 year old, 2 dogs and a cat. We have a 4 bed property that always needs some gardening or maintenance. We are easy going, both have done a lot of travel and enjoy meeting people from other countries. I love to cook so you will be well fed (unless you love to cook too then I will enjoy food from your country!).

We would prefer people who are over 23 years of age (sorry we have had bad experiences with younger people).

Work would be gardening or walking the dogs, or painting or housework.

We are flexible with hours, 4 hours a day in exchange for accommodation and food can be split or completed 9-1 for example then you have the rest of the day free.

I have a bad back so I can only do so much physical work.

The room is a private room with 3 king single beds, desk, and unlimited wifi.

Taupo is a lovely little town which I am sure you will enjoy for a few days.

Lifestyle block situated 15ks from Taupo township, with extensive planted grounds and garden. We are a retired couple who now require assistance keeping our large property in order. We are in a very peaceful country location with stunning views overlooking Lake Taupo and the mountains of the Tongariro National Park. We have travelled extensively overseas and often have international guests, as we enjoy hosting and talking to people from other countries.
Our preference is for mature, fit young people who are good workers and prepare to work for 4 hours each morning in return for good accommodation and hearty
meals. As our property is in the country, a car is necessary.

We require help for 5/6 days from 18 September for gardening, spring cleaning windows and carpet, and cutting back and tidying trees and shrubs on our driveway.

Kia ora!

A bit about us:
We are a young family living and working in Taupo. We love the outdoors and adventures and spending quality time with our baby daughter. We have slowly been doing up our classic weatherboard house we purchased almost three years ago.


We are looking for someone who can give Liam a hand to prep and install the kitchen such as lifting and installing ceiling gib, dismantling the old kitchen and putting together flat packs. There may also be some cooking and gardening jobs.

What we can offer:
We can provide you with a comfy bed, breakfast and dinner. We are happy for you to help yourselves to the pantry for lunch. We would love to show you around some of the special places in Taupo.

Our house has unlimited wifi and is walking distance to town and the lake. We have a bike available for you to use.

For this particular kitchen job we would probably prefer someone who is happy to do a couple of solids days work (to get the job done) in exchange... more inside

I'm a single mum with two young children who's looking for an extra hand or two (only after a helper every second week). We are loud, but very friendly and love company.

The house is not large, but you'll have your own bathroom. Wifi, but not unlimited. Bed is a firm but comfortable fold down couch. Food situation can vary but the basics will be provided. Expecting only 2 hours help per day to allow for the more simple arrangements and lower the hosting expectations on myself.

Open the gate to walk 1 minute to the beautiful Lake Taupo, enjoy the spa or indoor pool. 10 minutes from all that Turangi offers, 30 minutes to Taupo (rides available many days) under an hour to Mount Ruapehu.

Help mostly includes housekeeping and other organisational tasks. Also some projects if someone was skilled; building shelving for a van & creating a website are on the list amongst other things! We might consider a longer term arrangement after a trial.

We are a sheep and cattle farm 10km out of Taupo, so own vehicle is an advantage, however we are happy to pick people up from town. Work changes during the year. Depending on the time of year guests get to feed young lambs and calves, help out in the vegetable garden, collect firewood and generally help out with whatever we are up to. We do try to differ the work according to the guests abilitys, interests and strengths. Generally guests help us from 8am to midday, howevery we are flexable.
