** Domestic Help - mainly housekeeping, cooking and some gardening.

Due to minimal work as we head into the cooler months there is a charge of $10 / day. Includes meals / WIFI etc.

Help to maintain the house, cleaning, some gardening, cooking and generally helping out around the place. It is not onerous work, an extra pair of hands appreciated!

Also, an opportunity to assist local volunteers in the Otematata Wetlands, a beautiful area nearby.

Nearest pick up point is Omarama which is on the route to ChCh / Tekapo / Wanaka / Queenstown (I can pick you up from Omarama). If coming from the East coast, just North of Oamaru is the turn off point to proceed up the valley (via Kurow), an hour`s drive to Otematata. Look forward to hearing from you. If you are transiting you are welcome to stay for a few days.

Benefits include boating and fishing on the hydro dams, weather dependent. WIFI is available.

Hi Everybody - we will be taking helpers from mid-August - especially if you are a fit and strong and enthusiastic person who feels up to working in the cold (with a stunning view and fantails flitting about) mixing concrete by hand and helping to make our brick garden wall.

We are, slowly but surely, developing a permaculture garden and orchard.
At the moment we are terracing the large part of the section with brick walls and steps built with whatever recycled materials come to hand - a very long term project which needs constant help from our wonderful helpers.
Another job that we are hoping to get help with is building a small shed out of pallets - so any of you crafty carpenter types out there would be especially welcome.
We are also developing a fernery and planting out native hedges - so there are fantails and keruru in abundance. Though the development is sometimes hard work, it`s creative and fun. We are getting there but we could do with a bit of help from strong ... more inside

My partner and I own a 50 hectare lifestyle farm in remote Central Otago about 35 minutes from Alexandra, 1.5h from Queenstown and Wanaka. The little settlement is very beautiful and reflects the history of the area. We have 6 horses, 2 donkeys and a few cows as well as 2 dogs.
We have 6 horses, 2 donkeys and a few cows as well as a couple of dogs.
Photos are of your accommodation, you have your separate wing of the house with own bathroom and wifi etc. We can accommodate up to 2 people and are looking for some help with weed control and a bit of building where required. Of course there will be some fun and horse riding will be part of the exchange to!!
Preferred length of stay is a week or more but we’re pretty flexible on this.
Cheers Jamie and Thomas

I HAVE SOLD MY FARM and moved to the Southern Lakes District. I live on my own, and enjoy the company of young people from around the world.

Please read Carelias review of her time here.
She describes my feelings so well.

I AM SLIGHTLY DISABLED BUT COMPLETELY INDEPENDENT.

I use crutches, so need a bit of help with work requiring both hands. We have a good routine here, not complicated to follow, but I do need people with GOOD COOKING and cleaning skills, plus some light gardening. Drivers license is also important I have a new home with good and private visitor facilities with own bathroom etc. I would prefer a minimum of one month stay.

I appreciate those who show good initiative, and am happy to share my favourite parts of the Wanaka region with you.

I am situated in Wanaka suburbs with the beautiful Central Otago and lakes district at your doorstep.

Wi-fi YES.

Smoking NO.
