Hi, our names are Leah and Greg.
We live on a lifestyle property 30 mins drive from Wellington city. The property is close to train stations and walking distance from the town of Plimmerton. We are a couple with grown up kids. We have 3 horses, a small flock of sheep.

In exchange for a room and meals, we are looking for short term helpers to help around the farm.
There is also another option if you wish to work for three solid days chipping branches in a machine you can have your own accommodation with your own kitchen for cooking etc for a week including the 3 working days. This option may be extended if the first week works well.
When you are done for the day there are some nice walking tracks around, or borrow a bike to ride over to Plimmerton to check out the town/seaside, or journey into the city and enjoy some time in Wellington

Update 17th Sept. We have some availability from the 15th Oct to the 2nd Nov with some flexibility with these dates. Mixture of Helpx and House-sit while we go away for a week.

We are a couple in our mid 50's who are "empty nesters" - that is our children have all left home (though our adult children and grandchildren live very close by and visit often) We have varied interests and would describe ourselves as easy going and relaxed.

Our preference is to host couples or two people travelling together as friends.

Andrews passion is fishing and snorkeling (diving for seafood but no air bottles) We both enjoy meeting people from differing cultures and we would describe ourselves as easy going and relaxed.

Our property is located 2 minutes walk to Paraparaumu Beach, just 10 minutes walk to the Beach Shops and also the Kapiti Boat Club where the trips to the well known Kapiti Island Nature Reserve leave from.

There are a number of great places to walk in the area. We have... more inside

Fancy a Helpx Stay with a Swimming Pool? :)


I am German and have lived in New Zealand for 20 years. My two children live here half the week (6yr and 17yr), which tends to be the more social half of the week (other half I work a lot). We have a few Kiwi chicken and 2 Kiwi guinea pig.

Only five minutes drive from Hutt city, or 20 min to Wellington by train.

We live amidst a very beautiful native bush setting with a small stream running through the property, lots of Fantail, Kererus, Tui and other native birds. Enjoy unlimited access to the bush via walking tracks which go right to the top of the hills above Wainuiomata via fire breaks, or take a quick 20-minute loop walk to work up an appetite before dinner.

Right now I am looking for someone mainly for painting, gardening work and some cleaning. Anyone with woods skills would also be very handy. If you can handle a chainsaw let me know! You must be happy to work if it's raining as most work is outdoors.

I have a charming, sunny, comfortable home with a lovely garden and a beautiful view over the harbour and mountains. It is very central, well connected to transport, with big parks and green belt very close.
I usually only have one bed available, so mostly take 1 person at a time - only occasionally can I take 2 people.
In return for two hours work in the house and garden per day, I will provide free accommodation and breakfast. I speak fluent Spanish and can help with someone learning English.
I have a sociable lifestyle with many friends, and helpers are welcome to join in on some dinners. But I do need Helpxers who are independent too, since there will be times when I am very busy and not around much. If you're good at cleaning, gardening and doing home maintenance and repairs around the house, that would be great. And I love good food, so good cooks are always welcome!

Elderly couple on lovely rural property; a vehicle is almost a must-have. Gardening and garden/field/shelter belt maintenance is our primary requirement of you. We have semi forest shrub gardens, small orchards and potagers along with many acres of fields which feed horses when leased and/or cattle.

The accomodation you are offered is suitable for a couple or friends or a small family unit.
