Hi, we're a busy family of four, Mum, Dad with two kids 16 and 11. We live about 20mins south of Palmerston North and about one and a half hours drive North of Wellington.
We're in a beautiful rural area with breath taking views, fresh air and loads of room to move.
We have a dog, two cats, chickens and some grazing stock. We've both travelled and love international visitors in our home to broaden our children's cultural experiences and develop their desire to see this beautiful world.
We enjoy cooking, baking, entertaining. We eat most meals from off the farm, vegetable garden and mostly home-made. Our interests as a family are travel, golf, thrift shopping, up cycling, sewing, designing, art, a wide range of sports, movies and heading out to the nearby beach house to relax.
We're offering a Help Exchange for accommodation and all meals for help with jobs around the house and farm. Weekends free and very happy to arrange times that suit everyone.
We have a double room and a si... more inside

Hi, we live on a very small lifestyle block with a few sheep, two cats called Harry and Frankie, 8 km's from Feilding and a 15 minute drive to Palmerston North.

Local attractions include the Manawatu Gorge walk, swimming pools, movie theatre, the Feilding Coach House Museum, Palmerston North Esplanade and a variety of walks. Plus it is only 30 - 40 minutes drive to the beach.

Currently we could do with a hand on some odd jobs around our property - including splitting firewood, painting, tidying up some sheds, gardening, housework and meals. We love to try new dishes and love meeting people from other cultures/countries.

We can pick-up from airport/train or bus if required.

Hello

We are a married couple in our mid-thirties, recently had our first child Jed. We are looking for general help over the summer on the farm from help with the animals, gardening plus many other tasks. We are happy to provid jobs that suit you and your skills

We have 300 Sheep and 220 Cattle, plus the pets!


We have had 3 Helpx experiences and all have been very enjoyable.

We would like a friendly individual or couple with a good sense of humor, practical skills and common sense. The ability to prepare a meal, if required, would be great.

We are aware of the traveling experience and don`t work our helpers hard or unfairly. We leave it up to yourselves to manage hours and a routine. We really look after those with a good work ethic.

You must be fond of animals! We have a lovely river nearby (Pohangina), the Ruahine Forest Park plus many activities not too far away. Mt Ruapehu, for snow sports, is approximately 2hrs drive.

Accommodation is a sleep-out off ... more inside

Hi there! Thanks for checking us out.
The property, has 4 rescued, retired race horses.
I currently have an injury and I`m on crutches, so I need help with grooming, feeding out, cutting and spraying of weeds; re-sewing; harrowing or mucking out paddocks; property maintenance and maybe a wee bit of housework and gardening.
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.
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 help out for 4 hours per day with one day off during the week (or 24 hours per week) and preferred stay would be 2 weeks; but this is negotiable beforehand.
Prefer a couple with their own transport; or over 25 with drivers licence.
We are not far from the capital (Wellington) and have the Tararua Ranges on our... more inside

We always need help with stuff around the house, housework, maybe painting, cleaning, ironing, and our garden needs lots of work. The house and garden need a spring clean. 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.

Greetings from the beautiful Kapiti Coast, on the west coast of the lower North Island.

I need some help with doing some house renovations. Mostly interior painting, some wallpaper stripping. Outside painting too. Maybe some demolition and re-lining walls depending on abilities. Also lawn weeding. There is so much to be done, you can choose what you would like to help with.

The Beautiful Kapiti coast offers the beach and ocean (beach access just across the road from the house), a beautiful island bird sanctuary, amazing bush walks, with the Tararua ranges offering longer hiking if you’re that way inclined. Wellington City is an hour away by train. 45 mins by car.

I have a lovely sunny backyard to relax in, and a big vege patch with some things to harvest (soon!), and a spa pool in the garden. Laundry facilities available.

Minimum stay 2 nights, maximum one week.
Three hours of work a day in exchange for a comfy bed and bedding, and breakfast foods. If you like to ... more inside

Space available from 7th of March 2019. 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.

Most of the work we would ask you to do is in the garden, general weeding and tidying, some firewood chopping, animal care and help with building our Strawbale house. if ... more inside

This is a simple bach, 5 min walk to a beautiful beach and stream. There is a kayak, bikes and boogie board for use. A small fridge, small stove, shower and composting toilet. A great viewing platform where you can sit and relax and see the beach.

This place is available only sometimes, as it is our holiday and occasional week long hangout, not our permanent abode. However, you can be here before we arrive or after we leave and we make it overlap where we can. Just enquire and discuss.

Just email me and I let you know if we are there.

We consist of my partner Natalie, myself, and our 4 children, ranging from 4y to 15 y of age, and a dog. Sometimes we take two chickens. Sometimes it's just three of us.


Please check with us via email if you are interested. It's a great stop on your way to Wellington or North from Wellington.

I would ask you to help for 2.5 hr per night you stay,and provide your own food.
Help is largely needed for jobs like weeding, lawnmowing... more inside
