  • Description


    Bit of an update- we now have 2 properties that require help with.
    My wife and I have recently separated, so living apart but still friends.
    The below is still an option however for the lifestyle property we are looking for long term stays.
    However my home in Motueka- short stays are welcome. Main jobs are gardening, cooking and cleaning. Flexible with hours. Staying in a house in central Motueka- sharing kitchen and bathroom but have your own room.
    Look forward to hearing from you.

    We are a young open minded couple 28 and 31, who would love your company and your help at our property. We started out in the Nelson area as helpers whilst we travelled this wonderful country, now we are returning the experience.

    We decided to make the Nelson /Tasman our home and have recently bought a lifestyle property.
    Currently the help we need is more day to day help in the kitchen and around the house- not just cooking and cleaning but playing with Roxy the dog and Roger the cat.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Having travelled NZ extensively ourselves and taken part in similar experiences to workaway- we love to share our home with positive vibes and people.
    A great spot for a private retreat- perfect for yoga and relaxation.
    We are open minded and always keen to hear about your culture. It's important to have positive energy and a sense of adventure and fun.
    We work long and hard but also play hard too- we enjoy a glass of wine and laughter in the evenings.

    We love sharing our experiences as travellers of this beautiful country. All the local tips and hints that our awesome region has to offer.

  • Help


    We like to play to everyone's strengths- theres always work that needs doing, but we like to play to people's strengths and theres always a project on the go.
    Currently we are seeking helpers who can help prepare meals and keep the house looking tidy.
    We are flexible with hours- and are more focused on the job being done well.
    Some general tasks:
    Cooking/ meal prep
    Cutting firewood and Trees

    There's always plenty to do- and have would only ask any helper to do tasks we have done or would be prepared to do ourselves.
