We have a lovely lifestyle block with chickens, sheep and cats. We have a new modern guest house available for hard-working folks happy to help out with various projects around the property, including gardening, landscaping, building and improving our mountain bike and jump track, eliminating weeds like old man's beard, blackberry and gorse, some house cleaning, general weeding, cutting fire wood, and other non-technical chores. The majority of our tasks suit physically fit individuals who enjoy working in the outdoors.

We are flexible about which days you work so you can maximise your enjoyment of the region.

We are avid mountain bikers and more than happy to give you local trail advice (you would need your own bikes or to hire some) around the region. Nelson is simply incredible for mountain bikers!

Note: We have our very own downhill mountain bike pump and jump track 400m or so ready to ride, and we are keen for your help to make it even more awesome! The trail always ... more inside

Airbnb business close to the city. I need 1-2 helpers to prepare room and house for Airbnb guests.The work would not be very demanding, just a little gardening and cleaning each day for 1-2 weeks. Would suit someone who wants to do daytrips or multi day hikes in the region in exchange for a little housekeeping and free accommodation.

Will you be our next Helper(s)? We've had some truly lovely travellers stay with us, and their help has been awesome. Our farm is mixed stock (cattle, horses, hens, pets etc) in a quiet, attractive, private valley, with an older traditional partly-renovated wooden farmhouse. We are developing the gardens, natural bush areas and wetlands. The gardens normally grow a lot of our food, & our hens are free-range. We are off-grid, using mainly solar power. We like sharing the area with travelers, and we also enjoy board/card games, laughter, stories. (Trish is a writer.) We offer meals and accommodation for 4 hours help daily per adult, or you can work 8 hours in order to spend the next day exploring the region. WiFi available. Activities may include gardening, developing native areas/gardens, chores, or similar. For safety reasons we are a non-smoking property. Excitingly, as we develop more of the bush and gardens, the native birds are increasing... Weka, Kea, Bellbirds, Tui, Koreru, ... more inside

Hello my name is Craig and I have an orchard just outside of Motueka. This is a 4 hectare property located at the north end of Tasman, a ten minute drive to the Abel Tasman walk and the beautiful beaches that surround this area. Here I grow cherries, apricots, plums, peaches, nectarines, apples and pears. I also have accommodation. Nearly always need help or if you are interested in growing food then let me know and I will see what I am up too. I have accommodation at a cost of $120 per person per week. If you are interested in a job around mid October then let me know as the neighbor will be looking for kiwi fruit thinners then. Thanks Craig.

Kia ora,

We are open for Helpxers now to assist with internal wall plastering and gardening, if you have some skills or would like to learn some new ones especially if you are good with detail please get in touch as we would love to host you.

We invite you to come and be our Helpxer/s and enjoy a wonderful sunny location with a spectacular sea view. Just 7km from central Nelson, this is a very popular region for travelers with access to the Abel Tasman National Park just over an hour away.
You can ride the bicycle trail into town taking about 20 minutes or there is a bus stop not far away or even better if you have your own transport. We designed and built our home, constructed from Adobe Earth Bricks, a sustainable eco method of building using local materials such as clay and straw, it keeps everyone cool on the hot days and warm and dry on the coolest. Mostly, there is just the two of us and our cat Baxter. We both work so mid to end of week starts are usually our preferen... more inside

NELSON HOME STAY FOR A ONE FEMALE, ONE TO TWO WEEKS IN LATE OCTOBER

We are a retired couple living in a large house on a large section very close to the centre of town. We are looking for helpers who can help with our outside areas that need a good tidy up as we attempt to downsize and look for a smaller property. It would be great to have a helper who has experience with gardening, home maintenance and cleaning. An ability to use a sewing machine would be a bonus, but not essential!

We supply a furnished private room with own entry and exit, free wifi use, flexible work hours, all food supplied is home grown where possible and can include meat and fish. We also have a little dog. I am a retired teacher and very happy to assist with English speaking/writing skills.

We are very close to Nelson CBD-only 10 minutes walk on the flat to movies, art galleries, pubs, cafes, shops etc. Beach and rivers are easily accessible, great tramping and walking tracks nearby, famous Saturda... more inside

Would you like to know more about living off the grid? permaculture inspired/natural gardening and food forest? natural building including round wood framing and clay building?

Helping hours will be four to five per day.
downtime.... we have kayaks with safety gear to use. Please bring your own fishing gear, including hooks and knife (***I Have NO Gear To Borrow***) there are great fishing sites that I can point out. The views from the top of the island are magnificent so hiking is definitely recommended.

Do you enjoy a place with two friendly people, an awfully affectionate cat, who dribbles, and around Christmas a whole tribe of adult daughters with kids and we plan to have fun!

There's a good mix of things to do: Looking after garden, house and each other, making music, preserving fruit, generally enjoying life.

Our place is in easy walking distance of the city centre, but still quiet and private.
It's like being in the country.

There is a general shop within a few minutes walk and a bus stop down the road.

The house is surrounded by green hills, with some of Nelson's best walks and mountain bike tracks right around the house.

We (meaning us two, Ian and Eva) have had so much fun with some of you, and love HelpXers who enjoy what we are doing.
Eva is a Homoeopath and always studying, Ian is an Engineer and tells terrible jokes.

We often share our evening meal with our helpers (and thanks to you lovely helpers who have returned the favour, too! Yum.).

We c... more inside
