Waipipi Homestead and Vineyard is about a 5 minute drive or 30 minute cycle ride from Masterton.

We have 10 hectares of vineyard with Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir grapes. We have lambs, chickens, a dog, a duck, a horse and a donkey!

We would ideally like a couple to come and stay who are keen to get involved in some vineyard work. Currently the work is wire lifting and fixing irrigation pipelines.

Itís not heavy work but there is some bending and crouching involved. We would like 3 hours of vineyard work a day and an hour of other stuff which might include light housework, cooking dinner or potentially looking after the kids. Or 4 hours of vineyard work if need be.

We are looking for someone who is confident and fun and likes being around kids who have a lot of energy!


In exchange for this we can offer your own large room with a double bed, and a single bed in an adjoining cottage with its own toilet, all food (although you may have to cook your own) a... more inside

Hi
Would you like a Helpx in a small quiet cottage close to public transport? Are you happy to eat vegetarian food? Do you like cats?

I have a small cottage in Petone, old but comfortable, with a tiny garden. Petone is a pretty seaside town quite close to Wellington city. It has lots of cafes, a movie theatre, library, and two supermarkets as well as many little shops. My house is quite close to the river and the sea, about 10 minutes walk. I also live close to public transport - both train and bus. It takes 15 minutes by train to get to Wellington and 30 minutes by bus. During the day the buses and trains go every 30 minutes.
I am vegetarian. I like to read, listen to music, go for walks in the outdoors, go to concerts and movies and visit with friends. I don't have TV but do have wi-fi. I decided to join HelpX as I enjoy meeting people from other places and would like some help with cooking, and some things around the house.

I am 60 years old and work at the univers... more inside

We are a family of 3 still at home - Dale, Marion and 9 year old daughter Harvey. We live in a beautiful park-like property of 0.6ha with lots of gardens, trees, hedges, stream, chickens and a cat. We have a self contained two bedroom cottage (sleeps 4) for helpers, with Wifi, TV etc. We have a swimming pool being built. Our property is on the edge of Carterton village, an easy walk to train, shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants, parks etc. Walks, cycle tracks, rivers, beaches all within 1 hour. We were Helpers in 2014 around Europe and UK, staying with families and making life long friendships. So we now would love to host, especially families with children, and share our lovely part of the world. Easy and fun helping, mostly gardening and outdoors, some indoors on wet days. Theres always plenty to do around the place and we love to work alongside people and chat. We expect helpers to provide and cook their own meals in exchange for accommodation and 2 hours work per day, but share some... more inside

I will be looking for people at the end of October again.

I am generally sometimes looking for people who can help around the house from time to time. Do get in touch if you have experience building retaining walls. In return, you will have some of the most impressive views in New Zealand, a comfy furnished room, kitchen, bathroom and lounge for shared use. Food, towels, bedding will be provided. There are a dozen steps down to the entrance of the house. You can see more about the place via the two website links above.

I am pretty flexible with working hours. Some helpers loved the opportunity to have one day on, one off, which gave them full days to explore Wellington. You will also have three meals a day. There is free parking on the road.

You might find some tips here: https://beachhouse-overlooking-three-seas.co.nz/travel-tips/.
For the Germans: Your host is the author of "Wahlheimat Neuseeland" and "Leben und Arbeiten in Neuseeland". www.wahlheimat-neuseeland.de. Also... more inside

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 and a small dog.

In exchange for a room and meals, we are looking for short term helpers for jobs around the farm. (Mid January)
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 14th December. The earliest that we have availability to host is from the 27th December.

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) 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 bikes that you can use while staying here.

The train station is a short bus ride from our ho... more inside
