We live in beautiful Taupo and are a busy young family of five..... (2 girls ages 8 & 6yrs and a boy 4yrs). As parents we are both working so would really appreciate help with general household duties - cleaning, and help with the children and maybe a bit of gardening. :)

We live beside the Waikato River, Our new home is just a 10min walk to town and a 20min walk to the lake.
You would get your own room and bathroom, 3 meals in exchange for 4.5hrs work each day. We would be flexible with hours, so that you can do some sight seeing around this beautiful part of nz.

With working 3days a week, and children activities on most days we would love to have energetic Helpx who are hard working, have lots of initiative and enjoy kids to come and stay! :)

Its helpful if you have a car so you can get to all the fabulous sights around, and non smokers please.

I am a female and work up to 50 hours per week. I basically live on my own with a small dog as company. My home is modern and well kept. Quite close to the Lake in Richmond heights Taupo.
I am offering free accommodation in a sleep out with use of the kitchen, bathroom and lounge of house.
My garden is always in need of the tender touch of loving hands. Also help in the house would be a bonus. I am very interested in expanding my cooking skills to include no kiwi meals as well. Would prefer short term stays. (one week) Longer could be considered on discussion.

We are a young family in need of a little helping hand.
We run our own plumbing and drainage business and our own boarding kennel facility.
We can offer accommodation in a rural setting just down the road from beautiful Whakaipo Bay.

Help needed now, we have puppies and need to tidy up the puppy yard ready for them to explore the outside world also general duties listed below.

Generally we need help with planting trees, pruning, painting, water blasting, weed spraying, gardening, house work, firewood, cleaning vehicles, maybe some cooking also we may ask for some help with little people aged 6and 9years old.
A typical day is 4.5hrs work (generally from 8am - 12.30pm) then you have the rest of the day to explore Taupo.
If we get a nice day we will take you out on the lake to see the carvings on our boat.


We do own dogs of our own so you must like dogs if you want to stay with us :-)

We once were back packers around the World and this is how we came across this... more inside

This location is great for accessing the best of the area, whether it be Taupo town`s activities or the mountains for skiing, lake Taupo, hiking or exploring the latest bike tracks.

As an experienced teacher of English as a second language, if you wish I can help improve your English during your stay. Mostly though, we hope to be fair and flexible in that we get help through your work and you enjoy some of Taupo`s lovely attractions and activities while staying with us.

We can host for 2 - 4 nights at a time or longer.

OWN TRANSPORT is preferred for our helpers as we are 14km from Taupo township. Sometimes, we will take helpers who don`t have a car and will drive them into town on their day`s off, but this needs to be arranged beforehand.

You would have your own private bedroom. The accommodation is either one of the two spare bedrooms in our house. Helpers have a separate bathroom and tea/coffee making facilities. It is a big house and there is plenty of room!

I am living in my own family home located close to the centre of Taupo within a short walking distance to the lake. I share my home with a flatmate who is working in the town.
As I have travelled extensively and with my son away at university I am looking to host like minded people who are fun and positive in their outlook to life.
I would require some odd jobbing around the home and some help in the garden. Singles preferred.
My interests are mountain biking, skiing, trail running, swimming, sailing, kayaking & hiking... actually I enjoy all the activities that are on offer in this beautiful region.
