  • Help


    In general: We could do with some help with garden. We sometimes have a DIY project or two underway which could be helped along if you have DIV/joinery skills . If you are fit and strong we can provide outdoor tasks that will keep you that way :-) If you are skilled with a camera we have some photos we would like taken. Right now we need some strong fit helpers who can move do some digging/moving soil as well as some garden landscaping and weeding/planting for spring. Make sure to let me know in your email if you are up for this. If you are an experienced plasterer we have some small repair tasks just waiting for you.

  • Accommodation


    Fancy waking up to a fabulous sea view? We live in a beautiful spot, 10 mins drive from Akaroa, close to Duvauchelle and can offer lovely accommodation separate to our house to one or two people willing to lend a hand with general spring clean/ gardening duties. We seek 4.5 hours (hard) work every day in exchange for accommodation and (good!) food. We can pick up from the Akaroa Shuttle. You are welcome to use our swimming pool (in summer) and enjoy all that Banks Peininsula has to offer.
