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!

We grow feijoa, tamarillo and black passionfruit for market. We also grow most of our own vegetables and other fruits. We have a flock of chooks, a friendly dog called Wallace and a pretty recreational garden.

We are on the edge of an estuary and 5 minutes bike ride from the beach.

We are close to the villages of Karamea and Market Cross, about 5 mins bike ride to one and 10 mins to the other.
We are 20 mins from the Heaphy Track, 30 mins from the Wangapeka track and 40 mins from the Oparara Arches car park.
There are several other walkways and walking tracks close by.
Beach and river fishing spots are also close by and you are welcome to try out our rods and nets.
We have 2 pushbikes you can use anytime.
The accommodation is separate from the house and has a kitchen, bedroom and compost toilet. At this point the shower is at the main house but if you are interested in creating a nice shower space nearer to your space there then we are keen to help you try your idea out.... more inside

We are looking for a couple of people to help doing mainly garden work and light landcscaping. There is also usually work in the art gallery when it is raining or for other-abled folks. We are really happy to host vegetarian/vegan, LGBTQ, traveler-hippy-punk and otherwise 'alternative' folks.
Our property is directly on the Main Coastal Road and is just a 3 minute walk from the beach. There are beautiful walkways and sights all around the area, including river mouths, lagoons and even seal colonies. We are actually just a tiny semi-urban farmlet with a few chickens, 2 crafty cats and a loveable dog, but we run a little art gallery and tattoo studio so constantly run out of time for taking care of all the details of keeping the gardens and the rest of the property in top shape. The jobs would include things like weeding gardens, trimming hedges, mulching, turning compost, etc (or for other-abled people you could keep the gallery open, do light cleaning and canning or help in the ... more inside
