    Update 2021. Happy New Year to any workaways left in NZ :)

    No helpers for some time now so getting a bit behind on projects :( :(

    NB, workaway seem to judge the reply rate on every email that comes in, not just the first one so the stated reply rate can be misleading. We always try to get back to people in good time, just some delay if we are away or maybe if someone is contacting us months in advance.

    We also need a lot of help to refurbish our Yurt and make a wooden deck to put it on. Good for creative people and builders. We have some Ferro-cement building project to complete asap. Once the vegetable garden is set up we shall move onto some building projects, which will include bamboo walls.

    Please note we are developing a Retreat Center. We are best suited to people on a pathway of their own spiritual and self development. People who are self aware, open to new ideas and self expressed.

    Chris and Julia live in a 160 acre Eco-village with their daughter Sophie close by. We have traveled extensively and still do. Julia is a homeopath, ecstatic dance teacher, Shaman and runs a community centre (Kalikalos in Greece in the NZ winter). Chris is currently developing our land but is also a professional yacht skipper, ex organic farm advisor, ex Greenpeace captain and charity CEO. Both of us have done lots of personal development. We like to have a good level of communication with guests and appreciate spending time with people who are curious and engaged in their own self-development.

    Our Retreat Centre land is 10 mins from our ecovillage. It has amazing views of the ocean and is close to some of the best beaches in the country, including Sandy Bay, which is a good surf beach where you can hire boards and get lessons. Our tasks are varied so if you want more details ask when you book.

    By default we need help 5 hours a day, 5 days a week but also offer 4 hours a day, 6 days a week, which gives longer afternoons off to go to the beach :) Guests can do extra hours in the week so they get the whole weekend off.

    Because we are very concerned about electromagnetic radiation (Julia campaigns against 5g) we use Ethernet cables for internet and do not use WiFi. We have 1 Ethernet to USB adapter to loan but they seem a bit unreliable. You may prefer to bring your own adapter if you use a Mac. Phone data reception is pretty good :)

    Because our kitchen is very small and a bit chaotic in the mornings we have set up our guest accommodation for self-catering breakfasts. We supply the basics: milk, yogurt, bread, spreads, porridge, fruit, raisins, seeds and nuts for muesli and eggs if the chickens are being co-operative. If you have special needs for breakfast please BYO. We eat mainly dairy free vegan but have fish once a week most weeks.

    Minimum stay is 2 weeks, please and longer preferred. We have nice accommodation for 2 and can take 3 but can take more people if you have a van or tent.

    This is a good place for people converting vans for their trips as we have a good little workshop and a range of tools.

    Many people want to come here but also some let us down or are really slow getting back to us. If you apply and we say yes we need you to confirm straight away. If you do not confirm you may lose your reservation if someone else confirms for the same dates before you do. This is a big project and we need all the help we can get! Thanks for your understanding.

    We love having people to help us but sometimes we are very busy so we like people who can look after themselves and show initiative.
    Chris is an activist, especially about climate change, human rights and sustainable development. Julia is more spiritually focused. We both try hard to make a positive difference in the world.
    We live on the most gorgeous bit of coast in NZ. It's 3.8k to Matapouri beach and we have a couple of bikes for guests.
