Hi we are Brian and Verona - both kiwis - we are hard workers but love to relax and have a bit of quietness at the end of a busy day. If your interested in staying somewhere that feels like a home away from home one of our places could be right for you. We love hearing peoples travel stories from around the world and helping people discover NZ life and our beautiful country. We prefer non smokers at both our properties. Because there is limited public transport in Raetihi/Ohakune its best if you have your own car making sightseeing easier for you.


The 2 places we call home are both listed on airbnb - 1 located in a rural township called Raetihi (perfect for Tongariro crossing and other national park adventures) and one close to the sea in Castlecliff, Whanganui.

In Raetihi we have great outdoor adventures close by - tramping, swimming in the river (in summer), mountain biking - you will love it here.

In Whanganui we are close to "the mole" a local surf spot a great saf... more inside

WE WOULD LIKE TWO HELPERS, FOR ABOUT A WEEK, TO DO GARDENING Jan, _ _ _ _? Feb, _ _ _ _? March _ _ _ _?

We can offer about one week of work and adventure every month. Work for 20 hours or so and spend the rest of your time going off exploring Middle Earth.

Our home is close to the Ohakune Mountain Road that goes up Mount Ruapehu to hiking tracks, mountain bike tracks, Lord of the Rings filming sites, and to Turoa ski field. The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is about one hour from here. You can have fun dressing up in my LOTR costumes here.

My wife is a nurse, and I am retired. My job is now gardening. As I have got older I appreciate help with digging, weeding, planting and trimming shrubs, lawn-mowing, etc. I'm also making LOTR costumes: you can also help with those if you like.

I enjoy hiking around the slopes of Mt Ruapehu. I'm 78 now and can't walk as far as I used to but I can guide you to some fascinating places.

I have been planting native shrubs to lands... more inside

I own a former backpackers hostel/lodge and we are looking to restore her to her former glory - we require people willing to paint the interior, clean the lodge prior to painting, help restore the gardens, landscaping (putting paving stones in the court yard) and assist with general repairs. Accommodation on air mattresses/beds will be available to woofers (so bring a sleeping bag), shared breakfast and dinner will be provided. We ask for 4 hours help day, 5 days a week. The lodge becomes available on January 1st 2020 (and repairs will commence) and the lodge contains 8 empty bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 toilets, 2 kitchens and 2 lounges. For this installment of repairs we have 2-3 weeks of work and will be putting in retaining walls a paving area at the back, we will also put in a new kitchen, landscaping and will be painting two rooms.

Thanks Helpxers for having a look at our profile.

First, before we begin, please note that we are only open to Helpxers this year for November-Feb. Our priorities this year are to:
(a) complete some building renovation - so would love to find some helpers with some experience in carpentry and/or plumbing (they don't need to be qualified), (b) build a brick pizza oven by the newly expanded pond on our property. For these kind of projects, we need helpers who are fit and able and willing to do some nice, hard work along side the hosts! We've also decided, given the nature of the work this year to accept volunteers who are 20 years or older.

For lots of info on Timber Trail Centre have a look at www.timbertrailcentre.com, and for info on adventures to be had in our region, check out our blogs on that site.

Timber Trail Centre is a little piece of heaven along a trout-filled river with orchards, olives, blueberries and 100 square metres of raised-bed organic vegetables. Th... more inside

Sorry I do not have any available space until March 2020
Kia Ora,
I am passionate about life, plant based food, caring and sharing and healing and many things actually.
In my food truck, I sell Plantbased Smoothies, hot drinks, Raw Vegan Cakes and other delicious plant based food. I need some help preparing food for the food truck as well as some gardening and cleaning around my home.
On Saturdays I take my food truck to the Taupo Market. There are some events coming up such as festivals where I would be grateful for some extra help.
There maybe an opportunity to help at one of the local health food shops on your stay, so you can have a look there as well, learn more about raw foods.
In exchange I can offer a private room and some delicious healthy vegan meals at my lovely home in Taupo. My husband and I have two dogs, so you have to be fine with dogs.
There are a lot of things to do around Taupo, such as natural hot pools, the Huka Falls, bush walks, swimming in the Lake... more inside
