We are a family of 2 adults, a lively 10-year-old and a small dog. We are new to HelpX.

Our holiday house is at a Waikawa Beach just over 1 hour from Wellington 8 km off State Highway 1. Here it is warmer than Wellington (thank goodness!). We are 15 mins from Levin, a small town with the usual shops and a great little cinema and library.

Waikawa Beach still has no shop. It has lovely sand dunes, a river and a very relaxed settlement of approximately 60 houses.

We have old bikes, kayak, hot tub, pool table, table tennis. No internet but we can arrange hotspots so you can contact family etc. We have a dvd player but you can just watch the stars from the KiwiTub too!

We are relaxed hosts and you can make yourselves at home. You can help us with a range of things depending upon what you're good at and feel comfortable doing. There could be painting, repairs, gardening, cleaning, and cooking. We are trying to grow more food every year but this year we've been so b... more inside

Help is needed to put a glasshouse together, cutting firewood and other general work around the property.
My wife works in town and is able to collect you, she also works in our veggie garden. I work on our small property, cow, goats, ducks, hens. Wild deer and Wild boar which we occasionally hunt for meat ( considered a pest by our conservation department ). We are between a native forest reserve and a national park, beside a good fishing swimming river.
We have WIFI but NO mobile phone cover at home, you need to get to a high point and take in some of the most beautiful views in the world to get mobile reception.
Racism will not be tolerated.
Monty is the cat and he's in charge.
We are twenty five minutes from the shops.
Open for Xmas .We are both well traveled,educators and grandparents.

Lifestyle property farming the gorgeous valais Blacknose sheep. . Also 3 horses and poultry. Early 20th Century renovated villa with two guest rooms. Friendly dog and wary farm cats. Handy to train going to Wellington or Masterton and half hour walk to Featherston itself. Helpers will not be worked too hard - just odd jobs that might be things like handing me some gear while trimming sheep feet, or being the "huntaway" dog at the rear of mobs that need moving. Otherwise tidying, light gardening, lawn-mowing.
Your own transport preferred. Food supplied but best you cook your own as I am always outside!

My name is Sarah (51) and I live with my partner Bruce (52) on a small but beautiful lifestyle block just outside Masterton in the sunny Wairarapa. The house is probably around 100 years old in parts and we have an old woodshed too plus a couple of cattle and two cats. We moved here two years ago and there is plenty to do! We are ideally looking for a couple who can help with gardening, fencing, trench digging, piling, maybe some painting and washing the house. Though a strong single person would also be ok.

For HelpX workers there is a cosy double bedroom with queen size bed and your own bathroom located in the house. There is also an outdoor bath if you like! We can offer a comfortable bed and three meals in exchange for four hours work each per day. We can cater for vegetarians but would need help if you are vegan please. We can collect you from Masterton train or bus station.

We are situated in the picturesque Pohangina Valley on a 10 acres lifestyle block. This is about 25 kms (25 mins) from Palmerston North. We can arrange for you to be picked up from Palmerston North if you don't have your own transport.

Our home is next to a river which is great for swimming and fishing. Great place to be in summer. We are also close to several walks but you will need transport to get to them.

We mostly have a furry family consisting of 2 dogs (inside), 4 cats, 1 goat, sheep, cows, Sophie the calf, chickens and ducks.

You must like animals, as most of ours are pets and love attention. The dogs and cats are allowed inside and will sit in the couch.

There is a variety of things that we need help with, gardening, painting, firewood and general chores around the property. Included in this would be caring for the animals. Sophie the calf loves to be brushed as does Lulu the goat.

Helpers need to have some get up and go and be able to work alone. We... more inside

We live in a river valley just outside Palmerston North, in the Manawatu area, and we are about 15km from town. We have a large family home (which we are still building) on a small 'lifestyle' farm with sheep, cows, horses, chickens, ducks, geese, dogs, cats, tree frogs & a goat. There is a lovely swimming hole just below the house and we make our own power.
Our extended family & friends live near by.
There are almost always farming, fencing, building, home made power, organic gardening, weeding & tree planting activities to be done...and music making. We love talking to you and trying your cooking, and Sue loves to paint & draw and make music with you -we also love playing games :-)
