Area: WellingtonAfter a few years of travelling I've bought a house and I'm keen for some help sorting it out and to share travel stories/tips with some international guests. If you're after a peaceful spot to catch your breath and relax then this would be a good place for you. If you are wanting a busy household with lots happening then this wouldn't suit. It's a great place to watch the world go by. It's near to the beach and to public transport. I think ideally the workaway would suit a woman travelling on her own, a couple, or two females travelling together. The bed is double but I have an airbed if it's two friends travelling together who would prefer this. I'm not wanting any long term workawayers but if you're looking for a few days or maybe a week or two then that would be great. There's one cat living at the house also.
Area: QueenslandI am the winemaker on a family owned vineyard in the South Burnett, Queensland. I have had quite a few backpackers stay and help on the vineyard for up to 3 months to get their 2nd year visa. Friendly and very open-minded, this is a great place to be! I am gay and a nudist in and around the house, so helpers that are comfortable being nude is preferred.

Area: San Benito Peten GuatemalaWe opened November 2011. Our first year we provided 6,820 kilometers of bicycle tours, 512 hours of English classes, planted 360 trees and 242 organic veggie gardens, raised 36 chickens and 5 goats, brought hundreds of participants from 28 different countries into our Partner Communities, benefiting 1500 families and dozens of locally-owned small businesses. During our first year, we removed more than a ton of garbage from our Partner Communities, opened two new Community Centers, provided the first non-profit ecotourism trips to Tikal, El Mirador and, of course, our secret spots all around Lake Peten Itza. With the support of our Partner Communities and hundreds of participants, our first year was a success. We are a cooperative of Guatemalan women, a registered Guatemalan non-profit and a pending 501(c)3 --- an association of family, friends and neighbors who serve their community and nature. Every cent that enters our programs and projects goes directly to communities, programs and projects that cultivate good things. Yes, we accept male participants too :) - someone asked, once.
