We have a fabulous cliff top property just south of Gore Bay beach. There are six white Fallow deer, a wide variety of fruit trees to attend to, and an ever developing vegetable garden that we keep regularly replenished with seaweed and other composting mulches.
Work here is variable but normally including tidying the gardens of the property, firewood collection, weeding and generally helping out for between 4-6 hrs.
Meals are extremely wholesome. We are smoke-free and any special diet requirements must be entirely self-catered because we eat both meat and fish periodically. Also we would discuss with you what normal internet usage is.
Anna is a qualified herbalist and Naturopath and this year we are beginning a distillery beside the swimming pool, with the goal of making herbal tinctures, and Tony is hoping to make a good high percentage alcohol Gin!

We live on a small block just north of Christchurch with our son Noah, daughter Louisa, Labrador, and cats.

Swannanoa is about 25 minutes from Christchurch airport and we can pick up and drop back there if required.

We are aged in our mid 40's and would enjoy having people of a similar age to stay. We like to interact with our helpers and learn about you and your culture/country. You must have initiative and be able to work unsupervised, but we are happy to write lists of things to do. Cleaning up after yourselves and helping with meals and dishes is part of the deal. Helpers must have host references.

CURRENT PROJECTS:

If you don't mind outside work there's a bit of garden tidying to do.

There is a fence to get painted and some childcare help might be needed too.


We have bikes and helmets available and lots of places to walk the dog. Wireless broadband is also available.
