Hi,
We are a family of 5 with 3 young children of 1,3 and 5.
I am from France and Nick is a kiwi working on a farm, where we also live.
We need help starting now with looking after kids, cleaning, cooking, gardening, feeding pigs, running dogs, training and riding 2 horses and soon milking 2 cows and make butter/cheese..
There is no cellphone coverage, and we are 30 min from Ohakune and 25 min from Raetihi, so anyone that doesn't like isolation and children will not be happy here!
Accomodation is a room in the house and food isn't vegetarian but is as much as possible from our garden or local.
Looking forward to meet anyone with lots of stories and humour and who is a happy worker!

We are situated 25 mins out of Taupo on a lifestyle block with views of Lake Taupo and the Mountains near to Kinloch. We are surrounded by bush walks, mountain bike tracks, and a 5 minute drive to the beautiful Lake Taupo. We are a family of 5, with 3 boys aged 4, 2.5 years old and 6 months old. It would be helpful if you like spending time with children. Having your own transport is preferred as we live in the country and have no public transport. We ask our Helpx to work 4 hours a day but we are happy to be flexible if there are sight seeing or activities you wish to do. Your chores will include helping to maintain our section with gardening etc. painting, some childcare and day to day house hold chores.

LOOKING FOR HELP NOW...
Our home is situated on a 7 acre slice of paradise overlooking the lake and mountains in Taupo.
We are a professional (florist & chemist), friendly, family orientated couple working between home and Rotorua.
We have 2 daughters in their mid 20's, one residing in Waikato and one residing in Canada.
Once a lifestyle block for our growing children and their ponies we are now down to a few sheep and a loveable dog (Cooper).
We have a tennis court if you like to play, the lake is minutes away for recreation and lovely walking and bike tracks are nearby (bikes can be hired locally).
As a little bit of age is creeping up on us, we would love a helping hand to keep this lovely oasis going.
We encourage mature couples or 2 mature friends, that are fit, practical workers that enjoy being outdoors. Basically people who don't mind mucking in to help us with a variety of jobs - spring is here so there is gardening, spraying, clearing trees, water bl... more inside

Privately owned and managed sheep, beef and deer farm combining spectacular scenery and outdoor adventure from mountain biking/walks to fishing or golf close by. In the winter we are only minutes from Turoa & Whakapapa snow fields.

We have a large 130 year old fully restored colonial home that is warm and spacious. When not at school we have two fun cherubs, 10 years & 8 years whom most of the time are under control :)!

We welcome contact from those whom can help with firewood and general chores. We are flexible to discuss what hours suit both parties and we can provide full board. Non smoking household.

Chat soon, Debbie

hello travelers! we are currently looking for a handy person to do some jobs about the place. tasks may include building a chicken house, painting, fence stripping, firewood, lawn mowing, grounds maintenance, and helping move stuff.

this 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 handy person with their own camper van. having said tha... more inside

Hi there,

We are a Taupo local family of 5, 3 boys aged 4, 7 and 10. My husband and I both work full time and are looking for help around the house, mainly cleaning, gardening and help with cooking and children if possible. We are a fun family who love skiing and the outdoors.

Hello,
We are a family of five, Richard and I and our three children & 3 fluffy chickens. We enjoy hosting travellers in our home, we live in central Taupo which is a good base for exploring Taupo. We would love to have some help with mealtimes, our garden and general household duties. Webdesign, SEO skills, videography, landscaping skills etc are also appreciated.

We live a very short walk from the town centre and the lake and we also have a bicycle available for use.

We would love to host couples or people who have great initiative and are capable of getting the job done without too much instruction. Please contact us if you are a family traveling with children and we can see if we can accommodate you. In exchange for 4 hours help a day, we provide breakfast and dinner. We enjoy spending time with new people and travellers and look forward to meeting you. No smokers please.
