We live in a three bed room house in central Wanaka. 10 mins walking distance to town &/or the lake. We currently need help with household jobs, cleaning & lots of gardening... We estimate that we have about 5 - 6 DAYS WORK, starting now or as soon as possible. 3 hours each day food NOT included & we eat vegan so would prefer vegetarian or vegan if you want to cook food at the house.
Must be child friendly as we have an 11 year old boy. He's a pretty easy going young fellow, who enjoys having visitors come stay with us. :) NO babysitting required.
We have a cat, she is very cuddly, so you must also be ok with cats.
During weekends we love to get outdoors & would be happy to show guests around a little or give advice on places to see & things to do locally. I own a yoga studio so if you want to come do some yoga, you are also welcome to join in with that. There could be some work done there too, if you were the right person to stay longer.
We look forward to meeting you... more inside

Help needed now to get garden ready for winter.
Must be able to be outside.


I have moved into the property 6 years ago and with the help of fantastic HelpX people and hard work of the toddler, we have a nice veggie garden which is in need of constant weeding and looking after. We have planted some fruit trees in our new developed "orchard" area which looks really great at the moment. We also appreciate help with daily house work and inside cleaning, help with dinners and cleaning up after.

Helpers should not mind an almost 6 year old child in the house.

no pets but plenty of birds (Tui, Kereru (NZ Wood Pigeon), Faintail, Silver Eye, etc) in the garden. And 4 chickens and 1 rooster who lay fresh eggs every day.

helpers sleep in double bed with their private bathroom downstairs

expected work 5hours a day plus help with cleaning up after dinner; please provide own drinks and snacks.

Internet on PC available, please keep your smartphone use to a minimum in the co... more inside
