Last Activity


We are situated in the picturesque Pohangina Valley on a 10 acres lifestyle block. This is about 25 kms ( 20 mins) from Palmerston North. We can arrange for you to be picked up from Palmerston North if you don't have your own transport.

Our home is next to a river which is great for swimming and fishing. Great place to be in summer. There are also several places close by where you can go hiking/walking.

We mostly have a furry family consisting of 2 dogs (inside), 3 cats, 3 goats, pigs, 1 highland bull, his girlfriends, Sheep, chickens and ducks. Helpers must like animals as our cats and dogs are allowed in the house.

There is a variety of things that we need help with, gardening, painting, firewood and general chores around the property. You need to be self motivated and have some get up and go. The work is not hard, and we don't ask you to do anything we wouldn't consider doing ourselves.

The accommodation in our house is suitable only for a single person or a couple.
