  • Description

    Description

    We're a retired couple with a great sense of humour and are getting our home ready to sell. We live on 9.6 hectares in a small valley in the foothills of the Southern Alps. We currently operate as a B&B so all our helpers get our best guest room.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We're surrounded by nature :- a 1000m mountain, huge forest, fabulous bird life and nature trails - and 20 minutes away are quiet beaches. Not too far away fossils can be found.

    Help

    We would love some help with gardening, painting and farm fencing. We're quite happy to teach you fencing. We are not looking for any help with the B&B.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Our helpers get our large en-suite room and three meals a day. We're happy to cater for vegetarians, meat eaters ( we don't eat much meat) and people who are gluten or dairy intolerant. We have first hand knowledge of food intolerances so always take good care.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    This is rural NZ. The beaches are empty, we are close to nature trails, mountain walks and have a kayak. If you like walking, photography or nature this really is the place for you. We have a healthy lifestyle and are non smokers. This is our first time with Workaway, but we have been hosting travellers on other websites.
