Old Tablelands is a small rural estate just five minutes drive from the boutique wine making village of Martinborough. The estate consists of a series of beautiful formal and informal gardens, picking garden, orchard, vegetable gardens, along with extensive natives and regeneration areas. We also have some livestock and 2 dogs who all look after themselves!

We`re looking for some general gardening assistance around the estate from February to November, preferably for a minimum of 2 weeks, and up to a maximum of 2 months. In return for 4 hours work each day from Monday to Friday, we`re offering you the use of our 3 double bedroom caretakers cottage, which has WiFi, TV, a heat pump and wood burner to help keep you cozy on the colder days (see the pics below).

Hi there! Thanks for checking us out.
There are two horse properties. One is a horse property, with rescued, retired thoroughbred race horses. The other is a working horse property where horses are trained and lessons are given.
I currently have an injury and I`m on crutches and can`t use my right arm, so I need help with feeding out, cutting and spraying of weeds; re-sewing; harrowing or mucking out paddocks. At the other property, Jane needs assistance mucking out; gardening; general grounds, gardens and paddock maintenance; clearing of sheds and outbuildings and maybe a wee bit of housework.
While not a necessity, an interest in horses would be really lovely.
You would not be staying on the property, but with me in my comfortable house, a few minutes drive away.
A driver's licence would be good.
We are meat eaters but happy to accommodate vegetarians if you`re willing to pitch in with cooking/ideas, but not vegans, sorry.
We are non-smokers.
You would be asked to hel... more inside

We have a lifestyle block in the sunny Manawatu, about 15 minutes from the city of Palmerston North, with a park-like garden. We have a variety of projects that that can be fun to help with. Right now we would love some help with building a beautiful barn by someone with carpentry or joinery skills. Other jobs include the vege garden, stacking firewood, building paths, and general garden work.

We also like to have help inside with housework, cleaning and cooking - we love good food! For guests with specific skills, we can usually make a project to suit the person. Working hours vary according to what is going on, what the weather is like, and such - we are not slaves to the clock.

Both of us work from home and so we are generally around, and we like to interact with travelers who come and stay with us. The bedroom is comfortable and the bed is cosy. We prefer non-smokers. We look forward to hearing from you.

Hi travelers and explorers,
We are in the Wairarapa Wellington region. Nearest town is Masterton. Our nearest city is Wellington.
At our house the help we require is for 4 hours a day. Nothing heavy or stressful, just general family help. At the moment it is mostly weeding the gardens because everything has begun to grow!! Spring is in the air.
We have 3 kids, 2 horses, 1 puppy and 1 cat. We live in the countryside by a river, great for walks and swimming.
You will have your own warm new double bedroom with your own private bathroom and amazing views from our modern warm sunny house. Beautiful quiet countryside. Wifi. Bike. Jacuzzi/spa pool. Three good meals a day! And a friendly open minded kiwi family.
Message me and I can give you more details if you are interested......( It is quiet here so if you want to be in a place that is very full of life, and want to talk to lots of different people, maybe we are not the place for you at the moment.)
Happy travels a... more inside

Hi,

We need some help gardening, farming, fencing, firewood, housework, cooking and some baby sitting etc - there will be a variety of work. We are a young friendly farming couple with a 10month old baby (who sleeps all night). We have lots of animals, a horse to ride if you like, lots of nice places to walk/run. We will give you lots of opportunity to come out with us and shift our sheep and cattle on the hills. We have a newly renovated home for you to stay with us. We are not cert organic but try to farm as organically as possible. We use biological systems on our farm to try and create a healthy farm, for our animals and us. We are not vegetarians. We would like someone to come anytime now until the 15th or April - maybe longer. We can pick people up from Masterton and we are only about 1hour and 45min - 2hours from Wellington.

Space available now. If you are keen on being part of finishing our Straw Bale house or just helping out with our animals and gardening, this is the place for you. We are a down to earth kiwi family of five who live on a unique block of land just an hour north of our creative capital Wellington.

We run a local tourist attraction by the name of Loco. A 1/4 acre of miniature railway running through themed surroundings in lush gardens. There is also a newly developed petting zoo which is getting lots of smiles.

We also have an organic garden which we use for ourselves and trade for local produce.

You'll be accomodated in a cute retro caravan located a comfortable distance from the main house with has spectacular views of the ranges. You are also welcome to use the house at all times.

UPDATE 18 August: looking for helpers any time from 30th August to end of September, for about 1 or 2 weeks.

Kia ora, we have a large 100 year old villa with a big garden and an orchard. We would love you to help out with maintenance of the grounds! You don't need any special skills, as your tasks will include weeding, trimming and pruning and possibly mowing lawns. There may sometimes also be small DIY jobs. In exchange for approx 4-5 hours work per day, we will offer you full board.

You'll be sure to enjoy your stay, it is a peaceful area surrounded by nature and birds and only 5kms to the beach. There is plenty of space in the house and a outdoor spa pool which is fantastic for relaxing in and stargazing! You will have your own room, and a friendly local family to share your time with. I have two young boys, and help with child care could be an option. There are cows and sheep in our paddocks and we have kunekune pigs and free range chickens.

We always need help with stuff around the house, housework, maybe painting, cleaning, ironing, and our garden needs lots of work. At the moment we need firewood stacking. If you enjoy cooking, we are always interested to try something new.

We are enthusiastic musicians and food lovers and love to share music, meals, wine etc. We have one cat (Jess) who loves being stroked.

We are walking distance from the Square in Palmerston North.
