This place is known up and down the Coast in its former life as a Buddhist retreat, workshop space, honeymoon house, holiday house. Situated on the hillside view ocean views, the house was once part of a commune, and before that, gold mining took place on the ridges around the house. Close to the Paparoa National Park and only 10 minutes from world-famous Punakaiki in one direction, and 2.2km from Fox River in the other, we are surrounded by beautiful native bush, an abundant birdlife, and a feast of kai moana (seafood).
Now we live here and run accommodation in the summer months and in the winter have all sorts of jobs that need to be done - labouring, digging, gardening, cleaning, tidying, and a multitude of odd jobs.we also have a beautiful friendly dog.
Ideally we would like helpers to stay at least a few nights. In exchange for jobs, we provide a lovely cabin, meals and loads of stories about life in NZ!

Hi I am an artist/musician and traveller. I like doing yoga and meditation most days.I am always happy to meet other travellers to share knowledge and life experience. As well as English I speak Italian.

I am looking for help on my property which I am developing as a nature retreat. It is a great place to re centre and recharge. It would suit people who are nature lovers who like being off the beaten track. There is no wifi or TV and only limited text coverage. Phone reception only if the gods are happy!

I am painting and decorating a 1930's Westport Hotel which runs as an accommodation business upstairs. Downstairs I am converting the old bar room into a theatre and performance space. I am looking for people who would like to experience the wild west coast and who would enjoy helping with this creative project.
