We are a family with 3 young children living on the lake front in Taupo. We require a female HelpXer with childcare experience to look after our two boys aged 7 and 5, for 3 days per week, 7 hours per day, in exchange for all meals and accommodation. This is for 3 weeks starting 12th January.

There may also be additional work available on our section for a second person - clearing weeds, mowing lawns, splitting wood, and possibly some planting.

Drivers licence is preferred.

You will have your own bedroom with a queen size bed, and your own bathroom. Our house is on the lake front and has a big deck with a lovely lake outlook. The Sailing Centre is just over the road, which rents out sailing boats and paddle boards and has a bar and great wood fired pizzas. It's the perfect spot for summer!

We are an outdoorsy family and can show you the best local mountain bike and walking trails, lake swimming spots and some good old kiwi hospitality.

We are a couple in our mid 30s who have just started a business and had a baby. We are looking for a female (preferably) to stay with us to help around the house, garden and with our 7 month old baby. We have a lovely cottage with great views and are rural, yet 2 minutes drive from town - the best of both worlds. We have a dog, cat and 7 hens so fresh eggs daily.

We live on a sheep and beef farm located 30 mins from Taihape in the central north Island. The Pukeokahu District has some really great calling cards, consisting of spectacular scenery and River Valley Lodge - White Water Rafting and Horse Treking, which brings in many different people, from many different countries via Kiwi Experience buses. We also have Gravity Canyon (bungy jumping) just down the road and also snow skiing is only about 1 & 1/2 hrs away.
I require 1 - 2 guys, motivated and hard working, to help. I require your help around my gardens, helping build garden beds, shoveling dirt, using powered garden equipment. In return for your board and keep, I require approx 4-5hrs work a day. Help duration is approx 1 week.
It would be a must to have your own car, as there is no public transport.

We are commercial vegetable growers and have some sheep and beef on small property. Very busy in winter with work in the pack house. Spring and Summer mean house chores and weeding the garden, stacking wood and maintenance around the yard. Autumn winter mostly working in the market garden helping to pick, wash and pack vegetables (parsnips and swedes) There are occasional jobs on the farm, in the house and around the yard to do. Happy to accommodate and feed you 3 hearty meals a day in exchange for 4 enthusiastic hours work. Being part of the household for us means helping out with the everyday chores of living together. So if you're not keen to help with the dishes or bring in the wash if it starts to rain then perhaps we're not the hosts for you. We have only very limited access to internet - basically emailing only sorry. We are 15 minute drive from the nearest town. Hiking, skiing, mountain biking,fishing all close to home or kick back and relax in spa, sauna or the house when y... more inside

Hi we have a dairy farm 20 minutes from Taupo that also has horses. We hunt in winter and show jump in summer. We have an outside room that is brand new with its own bathroom that is attached to the stables and has an amazing view out to Mt Ruapehu. We have three children our son is at boarding school and have identical twin girls still at home. We love snow and water skiing, trail riding, and of course horse riding. We like to entertain and enjoy good food and wine. If you come here we would be flexible with work hours as we think work one day and explore beautiful Taupo the next. Ideally you should have your own transport as this would enable you the freedom as we are out of town but it is not essential. Jobs that are on offer are general farm work, house work, gardening, horse riding (and all that goes with horses). It all depends on time of year and your skills.
