We have recently completed building our forever home but still have some gardening and landscaping to complete. We live 10 minutes out of central Queenstown. We are on a local bus route but your own car would be an advantage. We overlook the Shotover River and surrounding mountains.
There is only two of us living at the house, no pets. We both work full-time and enjoy the outdoors when we have time. We have a spare room and you would have your own bathroom.
We are looking for easy going, fit people who are interested in completing some gardening, landscaping and general house maintenance in exchange for 3/4 days full board.
We look forward to hearing from you.

I am a Professional Artist/Educator (Photographic Medium), also Gay. I am not vegetarian. I live in small scenic rural settlement and need property maintenance help (mostly: landscaping & gardening. etc.) from time to time. Current Help (Jan 2020): Create a new vegetable garden, landscaping, odd jobs, (IT website work - maybe an option). Please make sure your own profile is current and up-to-date, and be courteous (if you cannot be bothered to communicate or respond to messages, please try elsewhere). I can normally host for a week (please ask/confirm in advance) but it could be longer. My location is easy access to the Catlins District (see photos). Free WiFi. Quiet rural settlement on SHWY 1. Please Note: It is easiest if you have your own transport/vehicle, although not entirely necessary, as Intercity buses do drop-off & collect here. I also have outdoor power and drain, suitable for camper vans, with a dumpsite nearby. Great swimming and walking around the Catlins District, sea... more inside

Our property is in Hawea Flat, 15kms out of Wanaka where we grow organic vegetables and live in a straw bale house. Karine has a pottery studio here too. You will need your own car if you want to move around independently.
We like outdoor activities: rock climbing, tramping, cycling, swimming, camping, skiing.
We ask for 4 hours of help per day. You get a combination of meals prepared for you (typically dinner) and food to prepare for yourself. How would you like to stay in your own tree house? It is cosy and comfortable, with breathtaking mountain views. We need a helper in the garden and around the house. Times can vary and be blocked together to give you and us the flexibility to have a day or weekend off.
Wanaka is a centre for outdoor and adventure activities and has spectacular landscape right at your doorstep: lake, mountains, rivers, forests, MTB trails etc.

My partner and I own a 50 hectare lifestyle farm in Cambrians about 35 minutes from Alexandra, 1.5h from Queenstown and Wanaka and 10 minutes from St Bathan. The little settlement of Cambrians 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
