Hello Helpers. We have John's Mum from the UK staying so have no availability currently. Sorry but we wish you happy travels.


We live in sunny North Canterbury on a quarter acre with our two delightful children, Nathan (10yrs) and Ella (9yrs), chickens, tropical fish, cat and a new puppy. The beach is 2 minutes away over the sand dunes, 15 minutes walk to great cafe, 10 minutes cycle to the pub, 7 minutes car ride to local town (Amberley), 50 minutes drive to Christchurch.

We have a list of half completed projects a mile long. Can you help?

John is English and I dragged him back to NZ with me after we got married 14 years ago. We did some travelling in Europe and Africa and loved it. Meeting new people in new places was an important part of travelling for us. Having you to stay would be a great opportunity for our children and us to learn about the world and other cultures.

Mostly it's jobs in the garden, weeding, planting, tree chopping etc but also splitting wood... more inside
