***We have Helpers staying for July so Cottage will be available again from August***

We have really enjoyed the many HelpX experiences we have had getting to know people from other parts of the world. We are a friendly and relaxed family who love having visitors so please read the reviews below from some who have stayed with us.

We can offer accommodation in your own cottage for 2 hours work per day. So you would cook your own meals. We are happy to be flexible such as combining the hours of work in a day to have days off. Given the distance to Rangiora/Christchurh it would suit someone with a car but happy to discuss as we have had a number of helpers stay without a vehicle.

We are looking for general help around the property such as gardening, maintenance, painting, firewood, cleaning etc. It will suit single or couple or a family, non-smokers.

Our property was previously an orchard but is now a small lifestyle block with main house and a separate 1 bedroom self ... more inside

We are a family of 5, living on a 20 acre lifestyle block only 6 minutes from Rangiora township. We have 3 small children, 11, 10 and 8 years old. We currently stock some sheep and cows on our property. We have a Jack Russell dog. We are looking for a couple or 2 friends who can help us in our garden. So weeding, putting pea straw down, maybe planting vegetables and raking leaves etc. Extra jobs to do around here may be help watering plants, mowing lawns, hedge trimming, bagging up pine cones or putting firewood in the shed. Just whatever needs doing at the time. Around the home it may be cleaning windows or some lite house work. Or looking after the children on the odd occassion.
We love the outdoors and live in a lovely setting with farms all around us. We quite often work with you or leave you tasks to do. You have the use of the quad bike and trailer for most of the work. We have a loft in our home for helpers to use. There is a queen bed and a sofa bed upstairs, a pool ta... more inside

Hi, we live in a busy household 45 min out of Christchurch towards the mountains.

We are a family of 3 - kids are 3 & 5 years old.

We are looking for friendly, flexible, enthusiastic people who are keen to fit in with our family life.

There is a spare room & you would need your own car to get around.

We will supply all meals which you can have with the family. There is free wifi. No smokers please.

We would love help around the house with all the jobs I don't get to do - inside and in the garden and some easy maintenance. We are happy for you to work 4 hours/day or a full day and then the next day off.

Hororata is a little town with mountain and lakes nearby.

Hello, we have a 'boutique' dairy farm on the edge of Oxford, North Canterbury, where we sell fresh, real milk through our Milk vending machine. We milk around 20 cows year round and this has been a very popular addition to our farm. Our eldest daughter has enjoyed doing Help Exchanges overseas so we would love to give someone the same opportunity!

We have a few jobs that we would like some help with clearing yard areas,sorting firewood, burning fire heaps. We also have ongoing jobs such as feeding out, weed spraying, gardening,painting, tidying and household chores so depending on the day there will be some variety.

We would like one person aged 20 and over who has reasonable English and has had a little bit of experience on a farm already so they are ready to jump in to help with anything. Hours/days of work are flexible but we would expect around 4-5 hours a day, depending on the jobs and weather. Maximum 7 day stay.

You will have your own private room, wifi, shared bath... more inside

Hi, we are a well travelled, English family of 4, who have lived in NZ for 9 years now. We're are out most of the day, either at work (Phil in Christchurch, Alyson in Rangiora) and our 2 teenage kids are at school in Christchurch.

We have a small lifestyle block that is mostly garden, however we do have a few sheep and pigs.

The accommodation is separate and self-contained, ideally suited for 1 person or a couple. Complete with cooking facilities, shower, double bed, lounge, TV, WIFI etc.

We are offering accommodation only, although you are welcome to join the family meal occasionally as circumstances permit.
