Hi there. I am currently looking for a helpx to do some work around the house, mainly cleaning up gardens, trimming hedges, mowing lawns, water blasting etc. I provide free wifi however due to being rural the speed is slow. Please contact me asap if you think this within your interest.

My husband, son and I have moved to beautiful New Zealand 11yrs ago from South Africa. Meanwhile we had another son. The boys are Zian 13 and Andru 8. We have two dogs Tank, a chocolate Labrador who absolutely loves swimming in the pond and Bullet the Jack Russel, 3 cats and lots of Guinea fowl. We have always wanted our own bit of land and finally 2 years ago it became a reality. We absolutely love the quiet life in the country where we have beef and sheep. Nothing big but surely big enough.

Kia Ora and welcome to Ratanui

We would love to be able to offer some Taranaki enthusiasm in return for a mixture of hospitality, gardening, housework and handyperson skills.
Presently we are looking for help with the motel units and gardening to 'spring clean' (well autumn clean really), cleanup, cutback and feed the garden as we have an event next summer in garden

We would require 4 hours per day or alternatively we are very flexible for full day's work and then days off. In the past helpers have worked 6 days/week.

We need an active person to assist with some gardening and au-pair work while I work part time offsite two or three days per week.Mid January 2018 on...

Having a vehicle is useful. We have good bikes. We are near the coast in a warm energy efficient off grid home with a large garden. Non smokers only. We often enjoy the ocean, surfing; and take part in events around Taranaki region which you can join us in.

A small but regular amount of au pair and gardening work by responsible person(s) in exchange for accommodation with regular paid work assisting with getting my daughter to school. Prefer an active good learner with an understanding or keenness to learn about sustainability and rural skills. We do enjoy ourselves! Piano in house.
Women preferred (my daughter Bella-13 lives with me). Beaches, mountain and cafe's not far away. Working horses.Prefer someone able to stay a few weeks and able to explore and enjoy the region.

Cheers, steve and Bella.
