We are a family of 5-9 living on the property, depending on who is currently staying. We live 10 minutes drive south of Levin and 15 minutes north of Otaki.

We are interested in organics, biodynamics and healthy living. Couples and solo travellers are welcome. My husband works at the local Maori University in environmental science and I am working as a social worker at a local college.

Jobs on the property include, work in the gardens, property/house maintenance and household chores. Most jobs here are very physical so a good level of strength and fitness is required.

We live 15 minutes cycle from the beach and 10 minutes drive from the hills. So walking, swimming, biking and surfing are things we like to do and can try to help facilitate visitors to do also(however no beach activities in the winter months (its too cold!).

We all enjoy having visitors from around the world to our place as we have not yet traveled. It is great for our teenagers to meet people with... more inside

Kia Ora Koutou

We are YOUNG couple in our early 40s with four children aged 16, 14, 11 and 10. We manage a large sheep and cattle station on the Coast of the lower North Island with 20,000 stock units of sheep and beef cattle. Check out the station facebook page "owahanga station" for more information.

We are looking for helpers to come and stay with us and help out with farm tasks, gardening, farm maintenance and general tasks around the home. There is lots of variation in the types of jobs that we need help with and anyone with practical skills and experience would be super. Working with livestock does require skills and experience so sometimes it is not possible for helpers to work with the stock much but that is not always the case and at certain times of the year, there will be plenty of work with stock to do. However, there are plenty of other tasks to do like cutting and stacking wood, painting, weed spraying and the like if there isn't much happening with stock.

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.

We're both in full time employment and both our daughters are away at University and our son lives in Feilding so would suit people who are fairly independent and don't mind being here on their own. We are home over the weekend though. Local attractions include the Manawatu Gorge walk, Feilding Coach House Museum, Palmerston North Esplanade and a variety of walks. Plus it is only 30 - 40 minutes drive to the beach.

There are always odd jobs we need some help with for 2 - 3 hours a day, whether it's in the garden, re-decorating, housework or cooking. 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 Rachel and Dennis. We live with our daughter Connor, aged 15 and son Hunter aged 13, on a lifestyle block on the edge of Pukaha Mt Bruce, a native bird reserve, as a result we receive visits from many native birds including Kaka, Tui and Kereru to our block. Also in the area are bush walks and some fishing.
We have a variety of animals, a friendly dog who lives outdoors, a cat who is mostly an outside pet, a house cow with her calves, horses, a small flock of sheep, a bunch of chickens and 2 hives of bees.

We are working towards becoming a self sustaining property and as a result at times we have interesting projects on the go such as cheese making, hide curing, etc, and a philosophy that if we can buy it in the shop, surely we can make it (although sometimes not, as it turns out). We enjoy good food and people who like to cook are always welcome. Please inform of any dietary requirements.

We have many projects including building, gardening, firewood and fencin... more inside

Hiya,

Iím a bar manager in Foxton Beach. The house is two bedrooms. My room and a spare room with a double bed, bunk and single mattress.
The house is an old 1900s house on a quarter acre section based in Shannon.
There are a few local attractions in Shannon including Owlcatraz (an owl sanctuary) and it is the white water rafting capital of NZ. Further to this, about a 15minute drive away is the beautiful Foxton Beach. 30 minutes from Palmerston North and 10 minutes from the local city of Levin.

I bought this house a year ago and am looking for help with the gardens, painting and decorating and building.
In exchange, I can offer free short term accommodation and food.

I am an easy going person who is very sociable. I love meeting new people and have done my fair share of travelling before settling in Shannon.
I have one 11 year old staffy and a cat who are both extremely friendly.

We are hoping to find our next Helpx from end of June or early July.

We have both traveled and lived with other families so we know what it's like being in someone else's home far away. We also know what it's like when you just need a break from hostels and all the other travelers and a place to collect your thoughts and make your next travel plans. I used to find hostels felt so dirty and public and hard to keep your belongings safe and make your next travel plans. We hope our home can be a nice experience for you for you to see some of the area and experience our lifestyle and plan your next travel destination.

We have a 22 month old boy who's a really easy cheerful toddler and my partner works long hours contracting on farms and I started a new business this year so we could just do with some extra hands to help with household chores, cooking, looking after our toddler and cleaning. We start work around 6 and he needs walking to his daycare at 8am so we would leave him wit... more inside
