My garden has taken off on me and my windows need cleaning. So the work would on my grounds and general house cleaning.
I live on my own, however my three daughters and their husbands and eight grandchildren, are often at my house. My daughter and her family live next door. My seven year old black labrador is named ANZAC. I have a new house that has been rebuilt after our earthquakes. I ask for two hours of help a day and you take care of your meals or 4 hours a day and I provide meals.
The HelpX people I have had to date have been fabulous.
I enjoy having helpers, single or a couple, and my grandkids life is richer for all the lovely people they have met from all around the world.
Looking forward to sharing my home with you.

Helpx Profile

Rural shared house/Homestay, original farmstead. We are looking for people who would like to live at our place for free, in exchange for 3 or 4 hours work per day.

We prefer people to stay two weeks minimum or longer.

Ours is a gay friendly house.


You would ALSO need to be OK with nudity (people also swim and bathe (fire-baths) nude here too (outside - all year round) - I know - it's weird, but what can you do?) ... a lot of our friends (and me) like to come out here to enjoy the sun, It's not every day in-your-face nudity, but it can happen from time to time.

Overall we have been very pleased with all our helpers so far **although we would prefer people over 25 years old**

If you need to be stoned on a daily basis to get by, then maybe life here is not for you. We don't mind it occassionally, but everyday use completely lowers your ability to function normally - not that you would notice it of course, but we do. Cleaning up after stoners can... more inside

We welcome conscientious individuals who focus much on themselves in raising high levels of awareness and mindfulness to come and stay with us.

When you are invited to stay with us, we ask that you help out with whatever tasks, which vary each day in exchange for your stay with us. You will not be asked to help with more than 2 to 3 hours each day.

What is more important is your keen interest in deep connection with us during your stay and we trust that we will find something interesting projects to do or work on together.
