Currently we have availability from early
May.

In between doing beautiful hikes, surfing our uncrowded waves or wandering along empty beaches, we would love your help with cleaning, garden work and creating fun adventures with our 4 year old son. You must enjoy spending time with a child and be able to work independently.

We are a family who love the outdoors and our alternative lifestyle here on Great Barrier Island. We live in a house that is completely off the grid and runs 100% on solar power. Our water comes directly from the sky or from the stream, we have a big vegetable patch and most of our meat and fish comes from the island's land and sea.

Andy is a builder and Deborah runs a stargazing tour company. In our spare time we fish, dive, surf, garden or play on the beach with our son.

We moved into this property in March 2017 after spending a year renovating (thanks to all the help from wonderful helpXers). But there's always help required, so get in touch!

This community was born in 1975 when a group of young friends including my father and uncle got together and bought this land to start a community of like minded people, in that first period they built the communal house we call the A-frame, established big gardens, planted fruit trees and had dreams of more communal space such as yoga studios and library but as the people had different ideas and focus in there lives they mostly left the Island.

My partner and I are now living on the land, and making it our home, and inviting like minded travellers to experience our lifestyle.

We are now full swing into a new and exciting alternative, eco building project. We are building our dream home out of mud brick, milled timber from the island and other recycled materials. Post and beam structure, passive solar design with green roof's and off grid systems. For this project we are requesting enthusiastic practical people to get involved preferably with some building experience or relev... more inside
