    Don’t know what to do in winter and maybe even in summer? Looking for a beautiful spot surrounded by nature, close to the sea and mountains – no snow, no frost? Come and join us in retreat, Punakaiki.

    We’re looking for a helping hand for our Retreat, start as soon as possible, open end, but at least 4 weeks. Approx. 10-15 hours for accommodation in our staff house with heaps of space and opportunities to get creative (or just relax). It has a bedroom, lounge, kitchen area, bathroom and a cosy fireplace, all nestled in the native bush of the West Coast. Heaps of walks and beaches to explore & nature to enjoy.

    Just needing someone giving us a hand with housekeeping, which is not all that much at the moment as it’s winter. There might be other jobs around in the area (gardening for neighbours, work in the local tavern) if wanted.
    We all are easy-going, love to hang out and go for walks. Tami and James (the owners) with their 1 year old Lilliana and cat Pebbles, Tom the maintenance guy with his friendly dog Sheala, Chris who takes care of day-to-day things with his friendly dog Marley.

    If that sounds like something you want to do please get in touch.

    Looking forward to hear from someone who is open-minded, down to earth, tidy and with an eye for detail 😊


    Come and experience a little piece of paradise here at our retreat nestled in the native rainforest and surrounded by rugged coastline, come and explore what the West Coast of New Zealand has to offer.

    Looking for a beautiful place to stay ? Want your own space? Happy to relax at a place nestled in the native bush of the West Coast? Contact us!

    We are a family of three (our baby, my partner and I) – and looking for someone who wants to stay with us in Punakaiki for a while (the longer the better, but open for shorter stays as well).

    We moved to Punakaiki March 2020 and now owning and managing the Retreat. On the property also lives Tom, who is doing maintenance around here. Chris who is managing the day-to-day things.

    Now we’re looking for someone who enjoys living remotely, is hands-on, open-minded, friendly, tidy and easy going that can help us in the Retreat. For exchange we can offer a cottage/house for yourself, unlimited Wi-Fi and fun people to meet and live with. We do not expect many hours, as we do not think that we’re getting that busy – some days more, some days less. There are also other (paid) jobs available in the area (motel, café, …).

    In Punakaiki are a lot of walks and beaches to explore, the most beautiful sunsets to watch and it’s always peaceful – perfect to have a break from the busy life ;)

    If that sounds like something you’re looking for, please get in touch – we’re looking very much forward to hearing from you.
