Hi we are Brian and Verona - both kiwis - we are hard workers but love to relax and have a bit of quietness at the end of a busy day. If your interested in staying somewhere that feels like a home away from home one of our places could be right for you. We love hearing peoples travel stories from around the world and helping people discover NZ life and our beautiful country. We prefer non smokers at both our properties.


We have 2 places we call home - both listed on airbnb - 1 located in a rural township called Raetihi (perfect for Tongariro crossing and other national park adventures) and one close to the sea in Castlecliff, Whanganui.

In Raetihi we have great outdoor adventures close by - tramping, swimming in the river, mountain biking you will love it here.

In Whanganui we are close to "the mole" a local surf spot, interesting history & buildings, great Saturday market.

From September we will be looking for people with handyman skills eg. sanding, painting, and ... more inside

I'M LOOKING FOR TWO HELPERS FOR THE LAST WEEK OF OCTOBER OR EARLY NOVEMBER

I can offer about one week of work and adventure every month. Work for 20 hours or so and spend the rest of your time going off exploring Middle Earth.

Our home is close to the Ohakune Mountain Road that goes up Mount Ruapehu to hiking tracks, LOTR filming sites, and to Turoa ski field. The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is about one hour from here, (but you need a guide and alpine equipment in September). Mountain bike tracks, and canoe trips down the Whanganui River also start at Ohakune.

As I have got older, my legs and back have started to lose their former strength, so I appreciate young people coming to help me. I mainly need help with gardening - lawnmowing, digging garden beds, transplanting shrubs, planting flowers, weed spraying. I'm also making LOTR costumes: you can also help with those if you like.

I'm enjoy hiking around the slopes of Mt Ruapehu. I'm 77 and can't walk as far as I ... more inside

are you heading to the tongariro crossing? we live a 30 minute drive from the start of the crossing... have some time to kill before your whanganui river journey? hello travelers! survivor kakahi is a little unconventional and may not suit everyone! we do not supply 5 star accommodation, BUT! we do supply respect, great conversation and lots of laughs, food is plentiful and delicious, and a cold beer at the end of a good day is highly likely.

we enjoy meeting new people and want to host people who have life/travel experience and a degree of maturity, prefer 30 and over. we have two young children, and we value our family time, but there are plenty of opportunities to practice english, converse and relax. we are both energetic and like to be around people with high energy levels and lots of enthusiasm.

ok, so if you are still interested, read on!

ideally we are looking for a single handy person with their own camper van. having said that, we are open to other possibilities! ... more inside

Sheep/beef property. 8000sheep/400cattle. Housework and gardening,we also have young farm dogs that would love your attention. in exchange for accomodation and meals. Bedroom in house with shared bathroom.
We have awesome views of Mt Ruapehu from the house. Property is surrounded by native bush. Come and enjoy working in a relaxed atmosphere.
A good sense of humor is a must.
If looking on Google Maps,search 67a Bernies drive Tangiwea. I would NOT recommend travel by Mana bus we have found them not helpful.

Travel down Turakina Valley Road for about 7 km
Turn left at Bernies Drive where there are two mail boxes, one red, and one yellow.
At the end of that road travel through a gateway that turns left and continue to drive until you see the house.if you are traveling by bus get off at Waiouru let us know details so we can pick you up. There is now WiFi.
