I'm seeking hardworking, physically capable helpers who have an interest in tiny-house construction and off grid living, singers, musicians, songwriters especially welcome.

My place is suited to independent travelers who'd enjoy an escape and some solitude, as it is isolated, no phone reception and no wifi, no tv and no town or activities within walking distance.
If you'd like to explore the beautiful beaches in this area you'll need to bring a car.

Work is 2 hours a day for 6 days a week. You'll need to buy and prepare your own food. I do have a salad garden you can pick veges from though.

Non-smokers only please. I prefer people to stay at least a week, and longer stays are welcome if it's working well with both host and helper happy.

Accommodation is a small cabin with a king sized bed, so suits one person, couples, or friends travelling together.
I also have a spare bed in my house-bus that I can make available if needed.

Bring insect repellent and a rain jack... more inside

Hi

Tim milks 60 cows on my family Farm here in Oromahoe which is actually about 1 hour north of Whangarei and only 10 minutes drive to Paihia and Kerikeri. The milk is used in our Cheese factory. Along with the 60 milking cows there is general farm work ie fencing weeding fertilizing, haymaking, tractor work, firewood. There is three generations of cows to care for. The Milkers,the Yearlings and the Calves.Work On the farm really suits those that have a genuine interest in farming ,in return Tim Is happy to invest his time in sharing what he knows.On the scale of farms in NZ this farm would be considered small. Accomodation is at My Mother and Fathers place across the field .there's a pizza oven in the garden and we like to use it at much as possible. I love the ocean.... surfing, diving, fishing,just being in it! So when possible I'm there! I would prefer older (25 + years)
Currently we have space for up to two helpers. give me a call to discus what we have available. Regar... more inside

Hello!
I live on a large block of land in the far north with a mix of native forest and orchards. Having the opportunity to live on this land is a bit of a dream come true for me and I am wanting to learn and practice sustainable management of resources and incorporate permaculture principles as much as possible. I have recently returned from travelling and staying at other people's places so enjoy that I am now able to offer a space for travellers to come and stay and experience this way of life for a while.

We have macadamias, lemon's and tamarillos at the moment. So there is ongoing work in pruning, picking, mowing grass and general maintanance of the orchards.
Over the next month I will be preparing and planting some new orchards which will involve clearing, mulching and planting work.
At the moment I am also working on upgrading the water supply systems and building some new toilet and shower facilities so anyone with some building or plumbing skills would be most welcome... more inside

Help required with landscaping, weeding, fence/yard building, sleepout building, general building assistance, paddock maintenance (we have horses so riding with us is an option).

Simon is passionate about carpentry and restores cars and I am a barefoot trimmer in my spare time. We are both immigrants to NZ so you would be in good company!

We both work, so helpers will need to be honest, and come with good recommendations, and will mostly work unsupervised. We require around 4 hours work a day with food provided. Short or longer stays welcome. Free unlimited WIFI, Netflix and a laptop provided if required.

Unfortunately the tiny cottage we live in is over 100 years old and the spare room is accessed from our bedroom and more of a junk room at the moment (not ideal, and the walls are thin!), but we can provide a roomy tent (in summer) or you can park your own campervan. Hopefully we will have a sleepout soon, but need help to build it lol!

We are 25km from Kerikeri a... more inside

We are a family living in Opua in the beautiful Bay of Islands. We are currently looking for two people who can help us with some school holiday childcare, our major wooden boat renovation project and some bits of housework. This would start straight after Christmas in late December.

Opua is on the coast about 6km south of Paihia. It is a small settlement with a shop, café, cruising club and a sizeable marina and boatie community.

We live within walking distance of the centre of Opua on a quiet street with a view over the river. Our helper accommodation is within our house but on the ground level, so our helpers can have their own space. It has been converted from the garage/store area and is basic but comfortable with it’s own bathroom, queen bed and couch.


We would like to host two helpers and our accommodation would suit couples. Obviously you have to like kids (ours are age 9 and 6) and preferably one person would have a background in looking after kids. It would... more inside

Brand new self-contained studio with own private bathroom and kitchenette. King size bed plus fold out couch.

2 hours work per day (per person) helping with gardening, yard maintenance and light housework in exchange for your room. You will need to provide your own food.

Suit a couple or friends travelling together.

We have 2 acres which is a flat 3 kilometre walk from Kerikeri township. We have pushbikes you can use and we are happy to collect you from the bus stop if you don't have your own transport.

We are a family of four with school-aged children and a friendly labrador dog.

We are trying to grow as much of our own food as possible but due to our busy lives we need extra help!

Tasks required might include vacuuming, sweeping, weeding, wheelbarrowing as well as helping with particular projects.

We're happy for you to work more on some days in order for you to get whole days off.
