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 3 to 4 days, any time between 29th October and 8 November, with painting, gardening and tree trimming, plus some cleaning if weather unsuitable for outdoor work.

WE WOULD LIKE A STRONG HELPER, FOR 4 TO 7 DAYS, ANYTIME IN THE FOLLOWING MONTHS TO MOW LAWNS & PLANT TREES.
Oct _ _ _ _? Nov, Aaron Fauteau. Dec _ _ _ _?

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, LOTR 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.

Hi,
we are needing a couple of helpers for a week or 2.
We are a family of 4, with 2 busy children aged 11 & 7, we live 10 minutes north of Turangi and 20 mins south of Taupo, on a 1/4 acre section with our friendly dog & cat.

We would love to offer our new insulated sleepout and small dinning area with fridge, hotplate, jug & toaster. Both are situated next to a bathroom that has a toilet, shower, washing machine & sink. You may have to share the bathroom with other travellers as we sometimes have guests staying in their motorhomes or camping.

We are needing some help with general cleaning and entertaining the kids, gardening, lawn mowing, removing scrub & branches, cutting and splitting of wood and tree pruning. (It would be ideal if you are able to use a scrub bar to clear some land, a drop saw to cut up wood & a lawn mower). Please be aware that most of our work will be outside in any weather but we can provide raincoats and gumboots if needed.
If you like cooking ... more inside
