We live in a small town only 1 hour from Wellington City either by car or by train. There is a lot to see and do in this part of the country. We've got an acre of land with a house, a few trees and small gardens. We have a small vegetable garden and an orchard with a few fruit trees. We've got a small dog, a bigger dog and a few chickens. Paco and Diego, our Alpacas graze in our paddock. We enjoy being part of this scheme because we love meeting foreigners and speak a few languages between us. Food and cooking are a passion of mine so my guests must not be fussy eaters or have food limitations. We have one spare bedroom that is clean, comfortable and private. This is a fantastic way to get some help, meet people and learn more about other cultures. There is always home maintenance work to be done around here. Contact us if you're keen to experience life in South Wairarapa. We'll do our best to make this a memorable experience for you.

Hey there. My name is Dean, from New Zealand, i normally live 6 months of the year in a wee gypsy village in the foothills of the Balkan hinterland in Bulgaria, and 6 months in India... but in some strange twist of fate i have just done the unthinkable..and whilst visiting fam and friends in NZ, drove past a dilapitated old tavern , fell in love with it..and bought it!
Now i have a quite mammoth task ahead of me working on restoring this old iconic building back to her former glory, but it is a job that is giving me great joy, and appreciation as well from the local community, who are very happy to see the place being loved again.
It is a all timber building over 100 years old, and was built with lovely native NZ timbers throughout.
Time has started to take its toll on the old girl, but her "bones" are good and the potential is enormous.
Yes, the tavern is a beautiful, (and big) restoration project that I have taken on. You will see and feel the appreciation that the locals have... more inside

We live on a block between the Wairarapa towns of Greytown and Carterton with sheep, a few cattle, pigs, chickens and 2 lovely Labrador dogs, Hazel and Lotta. We are about an hour from Wellington by car.
Our four boys are aged between 7 and 18 and keep us super busy-the boys love playing football and cricket!
Accommodation-brand new late 2015- fully self contained cottage, ideal for a couple. Best to have your own car, but happy to pick up etc from train or bus. We're not too far from the river for swimming in Summer; Tararua ranges for beautiful walks, and shops are a 5 minute drive away. We now have a swimming pool.
So we'd like some help with the gardens(weeding /watering vegetable and flower gardens), orchard, and feeding animals. We'll be tree planting in Autumn. We've got some painting to finish on the shed to do as well. Always something to do. We'd love to welcome you to our little corner of the beautiful Wairarapa.

Hi we would like one or 2 people who would like to stay for up to 1 week (but we are flexible), please note photo 1 is of our previous property, but it does show the caravan.

The sort of thing you will be doing includes; general gardening, spreading mulch, weeding and helping in the house,
You don't have to know a lot - we will teach you, if you have a willing attitude that is all you need.
If you are a Mandarin or Cantonese speaker, we would love to learn something about the language and culture as we are both English language teachers and would like to teach in China one day.

We used to live in Ohau near Levin growing hazelnuts, (photo 1) and hosted many helpexers there, but we have just built a new house on a large block of land. On which we want to plant food bearing trees.

We have a warm & comfortable caravan(we have electric blankets and heater)that sleeps up to 4 people for you to stay in, with views to the Tararua Ranges. ( The beach is at the end of o... more inside

We are a mid-fifties couple - both work professionally but live on this little patch of paradise 2.5km from the lovely village of Greytown. We have pigs, sheep, cows, chooks, cats and a dog!
We also have over 100 quince trees which we harvest in March/ April and a few other fruit trees as the land we live on used to be an old orchard.
We have moved a 100 year old woolshed onto the property and have converted it into a home. It is still a work in progress but is a lovely homely space. We haven't updated our website since we moved in. That will be the surprise!
We would love help with animal care, feeding etc, and general basic block maintenance. We would also welcome visitors who love cooking as they can have free range of the kitchen. Guests sleep in the house (woolshed) - (there are three large bedrooms) and we are happy to provide transport to public transport links such as the railway station of bus stops in town.

Hello,

Our little family of four are looking for some extra support with gardening, childcare, cooking, and cleaning.

We ask for four hours work per day in exchange for a place to sleep (in your own room) and meals. Internet included.

We enjoy yoga, being in nature, riding scooters, eating ice cream, and meeting interesting people.

The girls (aged 4 and 6) especially like playing outside, going to the beach, riding bikes, chatting.

We see HelpX as what we can gift to each other rather than what we can get from each other.

We have a comfortable 5-bedroom house right on the beach. Walk across the road to the sea. Half-an-hour to Palmerston North, just north of the lovely Kapiti Coast. Bush and sea walks within short driving distance or a long, safe beach just across the road. Light work in the garden, creating order in a wild and weedy section. Plenty of free time for beach walks and exploring. Please note that the Helpex map is incorrect. Search for Foxton Beach (north of Levin). We have a very friendly Border Collie dog (Harry) and an over-friendly cat (Smooch). The work is mainly building and renovation but we are generous with hours off because it is your holiday time.

We are off-grid on a seven acre lifestyle block in the heart of the Wairarapa Valley. It is a peaceful garden setting with ducks, chickens and cattle, just an hour and a half from Wellington by car or train.
We are 15 minutes from Masterton, Carterton and Greytown, and 30 minutes to Martinborough and to the Tararua Forest Park. We are close to the Gladstone Wine area, and the award winning Gladstone Inn as well as the lovely Ruamahanga River. Gladstone is just an hour from the coast, and is a great cycling area.
Help is very welcome in general seasonal lifestyle block maintenance and gardening tasks.

Functioning dairy farm based 10 minutes from Palmerston North, and 10 minutes from Himitangi Beach on the west coast of the North Island. Wellington is a 2 hour drive south. Very central location.

The farm house has 5 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms. Loads of friendly pets around, and a couple of horses. It's a really handy location to town, so it's great for socialising when not helping out! You would have the choice of 2 double rooms, internet, sky, washing machine etc..

Looking for help with a wide range of jobs i.e farm jobs, cleaning, cooking, helping with the horses, and odd jobs around the house.

We are a young couple looking for some enthusiastic people to join us. We are very social, and would be happy to show you around the area, and introduce you to kiwi food and beer :)
