Hi there.

UPDATE. Sorry ....Our house is FULL until JUNE 2020.


We love our Helpexers and will definitely treat you like family while you are with us.

We need people for painting the house, minor repairs on furniture, gardening.....( just whatever you can do really! ) We prefer that people stay a minimum of a week . Most helpxers end up staying with us for one or two weeks. We are flexible. It’s WAY better if you BOOK AHEAD a few days (or more!) because we generally cannot take people with no ‘ notice’.
We have 32 year old Leandro ( from Brazil ) living with us full time at the moment. ( he works full time in town )


I'm a painter with a home art gallery . We have a large house, sleepout, pool and a huge FALE (pool house in the first photo) My husband works in I.T. and is a keen rugby player. Two of our sons (also rugby players ) live in Wellington. Pedro (21) is at university and Flynn(23) is working. Dominic (25) is playing rugby in... more inside

Update 20/03/2020 - our permanent tenants will be moving sometime in April. We will be available to have helpers after this time.

We're a family (daughter is 2 years old) living in one of earth's places of paradise. We are environmentally conscious, aiming for sustainable living and minimal waste. We love exploring, adventuring and creating great memories.

After being transient for 10+ years, we have found our place to spread roots and aim to grow amazing food having bought where we were renting. We're on a semi-rural section in the city! We have an apple, fig, plum, feijoa and grapefruit trees, gardens, 2 sheep and 2 chickens. The section borders onto Hongihongi Stream where there is lots of native bird life and trees in our sanctuary.

Our place is 2 min drive to great surf and family-friendly beaches, play grounds and parks, and the CBD is 5 min drive away. Bus stop is 50 metres from driveway. It's a 45min drive to the North Egmont Visitor Centre up Mount Taranaki.

Nau mai, haere mai! Our kainga (family homestead) is based at Teikaroa - a traditional fishing and gardening village of our local marae, Parihaka. Famous for it's visionary passive resistance movement in the face of colonial land grabbing in the 19th century which inspired Ghandi and Martin Luther King. We are located right on the coast famous for it's surf breaks and traditional kai (food) gathering. We have a half acre section where we grow most of our own kai. We keep bees and chickens and see opportunities to incorporate more animals into our food system.

We are also looking to build whareiti (tiny homes) with hope to run whakairo (carving) and raranga (weaving) workshops.

We use matauranga Maori (traditional Maori knowledge) and permaculture principles in our maara (garden) and work with the seasons to suit our lifestyle.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR;
- People with building, carpentry and/or gardening skills
- Suit a couple with their own van/camper/tent however we have roo... more inside

Hi,

We are a busy New Zealand family, I am a solo mum with three young kids and a very sporty, social, and busy household!! :)

I have travelled extensively and lived in both Asia and Europe and have settled happily back in New Plymouth with my wife family and love the lifestyle, mountain, beaches and parks our city offers. Our home is just one minutes walk to a lovely river, and another 3km walk to the beaches!

I am happy to drive you when I can to other attractions such as Mount Taranaki.

We are an active family, I run and own a health and fitness company, love entertaining friends and family and socialising, and meeting new people from all over the world.

We are open minded, come from a close family, and enjoy the outdoors.

We ask for 4 hours spent helping around the house and garden, 8am -12pm. And a short time in the evening tidying up from the day before dinner at 6pm.

In exchange for good quality homecooked meals 3 x a day, a queen size bed in a caravan ... more inside

Is this you?
Would you like to stay at the foot of one of New Zealand's most beautiful mountain?

Would you like to be on a small 2 acre life style block with three pet kunekune pigs, about 20 plus chickens and a (mostly) friendly host?

Your help would include planting and weeding, painting and generally helping me to beautify the lifestyle block.

Can you imagine enjoying watching the sunset and the beautiful Mount Taranaki?

Can you imagine getting to know three small pet kunekune pigs as they stroll around outside of the house, looking for food and an opportunity to be patted and brushed by anyone who's around? Or watching free range chickens with their baby
chicks?

You'll receive good home cooked food from the friendly host and transport if you don't have your own to to the five km away Stratford which has various places with free internet especially the library. Also transport to the many outstanding mountain walks. I'll work 2 days away from home. It ... more inside

The dogs and cat are all outside animals.

Meals are shared with us - and help to prepare the food or to clean up is always appreciated. We also love to travel and encourage our guests to cook their favourite meals and if it sounds delicious, we will go to great lengths to provide authentic ingredients.
