We are looking for one female helper. We need approx 4 hours of help per day (e.g., babysitting, cooking, cleaning). In return, we provide 3 meals and a bedroom. The minimum stay is one week, but longer stay is fine, too.

I am originally from Japan and married to a kiwi. Our 4.5 year old daughter, Miyu, is generally easy to look after. Our 3 bedroom 2 bathroom house is modern and sunny. We enjoy taking our helpers to the famous Saturday market and Tahunanui beach etc.

We can pick you up from Nelson. Our house is 7 min walk to the Richmond Mall, and close to library & bus stops. You can catch a ride into Nelson on Nathan's electric car, too.

We are trying to live in a sustainable manner. We enjoy growing organic fruit and vegetables.I have a Ph.D. in Zoology. Nathan is an architect and had taught English in Taiwan for 1.5 years. We look forward to meeting friendly and like-minded people who are interested in reducing our impact on the planet. No smokers, please.

We have a 5 acre farm 300 metres from Ruby Bay beach. Ruby Bay is conveniently between Nelson and Abel Tasman National Park. We have a beautiful established garden, vegetable plot and orchard. We also raise rare breed pigs (Large Black or Devons), chickens, American bronze turkeys, Khaki Campell ducks and Gotland sheep. We have two beautiful riding horses. Our 4 bedroom farmhouse is comfortable and cosy and has beautiful views out to the ocean. We both work full-time, use one bedroom in our house as an AirBnB so are looking for help with gardening, animal husbandry, firewood, cleaning and various other odd jobs as the seasons dictate. We are able to be flexible about helping hours and are able to provide bed and breakfast and offer horse riding for experienced horse riders.

We have a lovely life-style block with chickens, cows, cats, and a horse. 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 old man's beard and gorse, some house cleaning, 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 take people on local trails (you would need your own bikes or to hire some) around the region. Nelson is simply incredible for mountain bikers!

Update for keen mountain bikers! We have just completed the first phase of our very own downhill pump and jump track. 400m or so ready to ride and we are keen for your help to make it even more a... more inside

I have a lovely house on the Grampian hills, just at the back of Central Nelson, with great views over the city and Tasman bay.
It is within easy walking distance in to town; about 10-15 mins, a little more to come back up the hill.
I am looking for someone who might want to stay for a week or two, staring around March 8.
I would like some help with some easy painting. I also have plenty of work in the garden, spring cleaning, some handyman jobs, small bits of painting, spraying for ants etc. Also some help with the normal household things, cleaning and cooking. The arrangement would be flexible, about 4hrs work a day including sharing preparation of evening meals.
I am a Francophile who speaks quite a bit of French but not fluently, so I am particularly interested in hosting French speaking people.
My farvourite saying in French is "mon Francais est tres rouille'!!"
You would be very comfortable in my house with your own double bedroom. My place is non-smoking. Please l... more inside

Jill and Martin (children grown up and left home) ( also work part time in Nelson) run a small farm
We have a dozen pet sheep, a few cattle and chickens. All the creeks and a small lake are planted out and we need help trimming trees and with weed control. Also we have a small QE2 Trust Native tree block which needs some weed control and track clearing. Jobs previous helpers have done are: scrub clearing, tree planting, tree potting / propagating, building store shed, landscaping (planting, weeding, tending to vegetable garden), cleaning the home and much more.
We have all required tools for the job so we will be able to make the most of whatever skill set you have. We have trees to plant so your work will be around for generations!
There is a separate building with bathroom for helpers, you would be eating with us. Also we have an old DOC hut from Kahurangi National Park up by the lake for the more adventurous helpers who might enjoy more rustic accommodation!!!
