Hi, we are Daniela and Alejandro from Uruguay and Chile.
We are living in a dairy farm with 300 fresian cows, at the base of mt Egmont (Taranaki), where there is a lot of hiking available from the outdoor people!
We are looking for some help in our garden, housekeeping, trimming and sometimes around the farm where jobs to do involved milking and other general farm works.
The biggest city close to us in New Plymouth (30 minutes by car). There is a little town in about 10 minutes with a supermarket and petrol station. There aren't any public transports so is better if you have your own car.

CURRENT HELP REQUIRED:
STAINING THE WOODEN WALLS OF THE HOUSE

We would really appreciate help with staining the wooden walls of our house. This job may suit a single male travelling alone that wishes to spend approximately 2 weeks in the Taranaki area. Text me if you have any questions or want to discuss this further.

We live in a quiet, rural, coastal village, 25 mins drive to New Plymouth. As we both work full-time, our general household chores and gardening seems to get neglected. We would be very grateful for someone to help us care and maintain our house and garden. We are able to host 2 people, for a maximum stay, of one week. If you have any questions, please contact us by email or phone.

I am looking for somebody to live in and pick my two school age children up from school in the afternoon as well as assist with some light house duties. I work during the day. We have a detached bedroom with a toilet and would provide meals. We have two dogs and a cat so must like animals. My girls like being out and about so a drivers license would be good but not essential.
In the photos you can see my two children , our dogs Chipper and Fletcher. Also there is a photo one of our bikes which you would be able to use for a ride along the coast (beach 2 min) or into town (6 min) or whatever you like. We do request a minimum of one week stay as this makes the most of the experience for everybody.

We are excited to hear from you,
Edie, Lola and Steph

Hi,

We are an active family, love entertaining friends and family and socialising, and meeting new people from all over the world.

We are open minded, come from a close family, and enjoy the outdoors.

We are open to shorter term stays (up to 2 weeks), we ask for your hours spent helping around the house and garden, 8am -1pm. And a short time in the evening tidying up from the day.

In exchange for good quality homecooked meals and snacks, lovely caravan onsite accommodation, unlimited wifi, use of a bike, family excursions, pick up and drop off to local sightseeing areas if its possible and being a part of our kiwi family!

We (my two daughters, 8 and 17years old, and me) originally come from Germany, came to New Zealand nine years ago and made it our home. We love Taranaki, the mountain, the sea, the walkway and last but not least it's people. We live in suburbia and over time transformed our section into a lush productive garden with fruit trees, vegetable gardens, a green house and chooks. We grow as much food as we can and enjoy bread baking, preserving, beekeeping and much more. We are interested in community building and new ways of living together. We love to welcome people in our home to make friends from all over the world. And we are always grateful for help. For us it is important to have guests who are happy to interact with our children, have an open heart and the willingness to help us with every day jobs in and around the house. We are offering a lovely bedroom that looks into the greenhouse, good homemade food, and a warm welcome into our family. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Come and join our family and experience a real kiwi dairy farm!!

We are a family of 6 (between 53 and 1) living on a dairy farm in rural North Taranaki. The 230 hectare property is situated in the Uruti valley, but also has terraces at the top with lovely views to the mountain, sea and New Plymouth. We are located 45km north of New Plymouth on the main road, so are easily accessible (only 40 min to New Plymouth). The farm is a working dairy farm with dry stock, forestry and native bush.
There is always plenty to do and we will find a task for anybody depending on their skills. tasks can range from weed control, cleaning, fencing, over painting, general maintenance tasks to firewood.
General rule of thumb is 4 hours of help per day for accommodation, lunch and dinner as well as wifi at the main house.
The current accommodation is about 100m from the main house on the other side of the road. It is an adventurous shedding light, power and toilet as well as fridge, small basic ... more inside

We live on a marae. there are many houses and gardens to be cared for. The larger area is approx 19.2 hectares, the area we take care of is about 3 hectare. There are several buildings with two marae and many other buildings. The plan is to be organic in all the gardens on the pa. we are with ours.

Help through out the year would be welcome. Parihaka Pa, on which we live, is a historical site in New Zealand History, it would be ideal for those who want to be part of Maori culture and to help us out with various activities through out the year. The maori language is often used.

Marae style living, we share the evening meal, sleep on the floor in the wharenui (living space) To be part of our family the culture we practice is based on our ancient maori practices.

We are close to the mountain, beaches, surf, the nearest city is New Plymouth, 50k's and Hawera is 63k's to the south. We have a grocery store 7k's away. Nearest petrol is there, it is closed on Saturday a... more inside

You have no car? NO Problem!!!
Do you like living at the foot at one of the stunning mountains in New Zealand? Then come to us in Stratford! We are the friendly people. Well, that is me, and one young helper.

The property is in walking distance to Stratford town center. It is a five bedroom old villa on a quarter of an acre. It is almost ready but will need a bit more of painting and putting on the finishing touches to make it look good again. Also light gardening and if you are interested, help with the cooking.

I also have another cottage on a two acre property that needs a bit of help with minor carpentry tasks if you have the skill. I also have some Kunekune pigs who are pets.

Overall the work is quite light most of the time, four hours a day and one day off a week. You don't even need transport!

Accommodation is in the town house.

FULLY BOOKED UNTIL 4th JANUARY
Looking for independent active travellers that enjoy the outdoors and are motivated morning people, we start early.

Welcome we love meeting travellers and have travelled extensively ourselves.


Our farm is 23kms/30mins north of New Plymouth at Huirangi. There is no public transport, bikes are available. We don't go in to town often so having your own transport would be an advantage. Though we can pick you up on arrival and drop you back into town when you leave. We enjoy taking you out and about to explore the area and do some hiking too, it will depend on our workload and how long you are staying. Prefer you to stay at least one week.

At the farm we live in a shed (one room) so the accommodation is in our campervan (see photo's). Toilet & hot shower is outside. Though the accommodation is basic, the view is wonderful. It is a beautiful place. We will provide good meals.

We try to be good hosts and in return we expect you to join us in... more inside
