We live about ten minutes from the small town of Cheviot and enjoy a lovely setting in the country, surrounded by farmland. There`s a big garden, and the house is very comfortable, with good wifi too.

There is a general mix of work available but our main focus is to have someone here to look after the place as we are away quite a bit of the time in March. We would love it if you could do some gardening and keep the place clean! Taking the dogs for a short walk most days would be cool.

We live about ten minutes drive from the coast (Gore Bay, a great surfing spot). We`ve got 2 lovely house dogs, 1 retired sheep dog, 2 horses, 2 donkeys, 2 kunekune pigs and 3 cats.

Harris Meats is located next door but far enough away to not cause you any grief, unless you have an issue with living in the vicinity of an abattoir.

There`s lots of sporting activities around here, from walking cycling and if you are keen on surfing or fishing, the river and sea are nearby. There are also... more inside

**The cottage is available from 1 March 2019**

We have really enjoyed the many HelpX experiences we have had getting to know people from other parts of the world. We are a friendly and relaxed family who love having visitors so please read the reviews below from some who have stayed with us.

We can offer accommodation for 2 hours work per day. So you would cook your own meals. We are happy to be flexible such as combining the hours of work in a day to have days off. Given the distance to Rangiora/Christchurh it would suit someone with a car but happy to discuss as we have had a number of helpers stay without a vehicle.

We are looking for general help around the property such as gardening, maintenance, painting, firewood, cleaning, etc and occasionally looking after the boys. It will suit single or couple or a family, non-smokers.

Our property was previously an orchard but is now a small lifestyle block with main house and a separate 1 bedroom self contained cottage... more inside

*** Welcoming helpxer/s now :-) ***

Nestled in the beautiful Southern Alps is the historic settlement of Cass (approx half way between Christchurch and Greymouth). I am offering private accommodation, (separate from the house with own bathroom) and all groceries/meals in exchange for odd jobs - painting, gardening and lawn mowing.
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

We live on an established property with a big garden, tennis court and a small commercial walnut orchard half an hours drive north west of Christchurch. We have a sleepout with a queen sized bed and a spare room also with a queen sized bed in the house. Our house is warm and we have wifi. We have tools for fitting out your car/van.

We need help in the garden doing some weeding, as well as some work in our walnut orchard (tractor driving, picking up branches)

I am a landscape gardener and Julia is a teacher. We have two friendly cats and no children. We both like to cook good food from many different countries that we share with you. We have travelled extensively both in New Zealand and in the world. We have done a lot of tramping in New Zealand and are happy to give advice on this. Julia speaks good French and some German.

We are happy to share with you our Kiwi culture.
