Fancy waking up to a lovely sea view? We live in a beautiful spot, 10 mins drive from Akaroa, close to Duvauchelle and just over an hour from Christchurch. We can offer lovely accommodation separate to our house to one or two people willing to lend a hand with general spring clean/ DIY/ gardening duties. 4 and a half hours (hard) work every day you stay in exchange for accommodation and (good!) food -whether you are a meat eater/vegetarian. We expect a lot but also give a lot. Read our reviews to see how much other helpers enjoyed their stay.




Gnnerally, stays of a few nights or a week are usually more suitable for us than long term helpers although we have had some exceptional helpers who stayed for longer periods and this may be a possibility. We can pick up from the Akaroa Shuttle and sometimes Christchurch.

We have lots to do in the garden: digging, weeding planting, clearing etc. Sometimes, we need help with general spring cleaning: house washing, window cleaning... more inside

Our family of five lives on a 10 acre lifestyle block 25 minutes south of Christchurch on the way to Akaroa. We grow our own vegetables, fruit and animals on the farm, and usually cut the larger paddocks for hay. We enjoy getting outdoors as much as possible and are keen bikers, skiiers and climbers. The size of the property means there is always a lot to do so we are grateful for the time and energy our helpers give to us.

We offer free self-catering accommodation in our fully self-contained one bedroomed flat, plus use of bikes, swimming pool and unlimited wireless internet in exchange for 4 hours labour per day. You can also help yourself to whatever is in season - vegetables, grapefruit, figs, pears, plums, feijoas, rhubarb etc. Work includes light farm duties and gardening and is suitable for those with no farm experience. Typical jobs include tending the vegetable patch, weeding, mowing the lawns and pruning trees and bushes. As we have three children there is plenty to be... more inside

Hi there

Thank you for stopping by ;) .

Ideally, we would prefer someone with some experience in gardening and landscape design.

We are based on Banks Peninsula, close to Christchurch city. We are looking for some help with all sorts of projects- from small buildings, plumbing to making swings and slides as well as the usual work in the garden and campground. You get your own sunny cabin and we ask for only 3hrs work a day. Or if you have a tent or van, we ask for one hours work. You would provide your own food etc and cook for yourselves so you eat what and when you like. This would best suit a couple, or group of friends. Your own transport is ideal so you can use your free time to explore the wonders of Banks Peninsula.
We don't care when you start work, as long as it is for 3 or 4 hours a day. So if you like a sleep in, that's fine with us. We also have wireless for you to check emails and facebook. You provide your food so you eat what and when you like. It is best if you have your own transport so you can explore the area extensively.

We live on a cattle farm on Banks Peninsula, 16 minutes away from Akaroa -80kms from Christchurch. We only get Vodafone mobile coverage here because of the hilly terraine. We are 10 minutes from beautiful Okains Bays beach and 5 minutes to the Okains Bay Maori and Colonial Museum and store.

We have two working dogs and Monty the cat. I am a Bach Foundation Practitioner and retired nurse.
My eldest daughter, son-in-law and 10 three grandchildren live close by in Lavericks Bay and we often share our workers. Another daughter lives in Darwin, Australia and the third is living and working in Christchurch.

We would love some help with the many jobs there are to do around the house and garden. The house is on 1 acre of land and now there is a new 4 hectare block of land we are developing adjacent to it. It is not a farm stay although we do have chickens and bees and plenty of birds! This is a steep property on a beautiful site, with a large house in the sun (mostly). It is 20 minutes walking distance from Akaroa. There are many great walks in the area and we are in the heart of many great hiking tracks.

We appreciate the help with the many jobs there are to do. There is always help needed especially when it comes to weed eating (grass cutting) work and gardening. At the moment we are doing some indoor painting as well.

Hollie works full time and Ad works mostly on the land. We prefer 2 helpers (a couple or 2 handy friends) at once who can work together or people who don't mind working on their own. Also people who are happy to cook for themselves too, as we have irregular eati... more inside
