We have a fabulous cliff top property just south of Gore Bay beach. There are six white Fallow deer, a wide variety of fruit trees to attend to, and an ever developing vegetable garden that we keep regularly replenished with seaweed and other composting mulches.
Work here is variable but normally including tidying the gardens of the property, firewood collection, weeding and generally helping out for between 4-6 hrs.
Meals are extremely wholesome. We are smoke-free and any special diet requirements must be entirely self-catered because we eat both meat and fish periodically. Also we would discuss with you what normal internet usage is.
Anna is a qualified herbalist and Naturopath and this year we are beginning a distillery beside the swimming pool, with the goal of making herbal tinctures, and Tony is hoping to make a good high percentage alcohol Gin!
It's a quiet paradise here between beach and Hurunui river ecosystems. We can offer bicycle, canoe, sup board and surfboards a... more inside

Our property is 20 minutes from the centre of Christchurch. We are a busy working family and run a rose business from our property. Our helpers stay in a warm and private cottage with one double bed, own bathroom and kitchen.

Food for breakfast/lunch is provided which you make in your own cottage, and dinner is shared with the family. We always appreciate a traditional meal (or anything else!) if you like to cook/bake.

Help needed is varied depending on the time of year. You will either be helping us in our rose nursery or general help around the property/house, just wherever we need an extra pair of hands! Our helpers typically help for about 4.5 hours a day, with one day off.

There is plenty to do in the area including fishing on many of the nearby high country lakes (1.6km spectacular walk to Lake Sarah) day walks/ tramping in Arthurs Pass National Park and Craigieburn forest Park, skiing on one of the 5 local ski fields, four wheel driving, Scree jumping (down Sugar Loaf). A short drive to Cave stream scenic reserve (one of the south Islands best free activities) and Castle Hill natural rock climbing park (where scenes from Lord of the Rings and Narnia were filmed). Other nearby facilities are The Bealey Hotel (10mins) and Arthurs Pass 20mins. In exchange I would like four hours work per day. Cass can be reached by ... more inside
