    Description

    Hi
    We are an easy going couple living in a forestry lifestyle block surrounded by lovely nature close to Nelson lakes National park. We are 15 minutes from Lake Rotoiti and St-Arnaud village, about 1 hour from Nelson and 1.5hrs from Abel Tasman. We are looking for friendly energetic people to help with various jobs depending on what time of the year (fire wood, building and forestry maintenance, gardening, and help our eco life better, eg with water power and a solar update etc.)
    We would really like people who like gettng firewood as we have a lot to cut and stack, great for the guys and girls who enjoy physical in nature. We have a log splitter to make it easier. Chainsaw forestry skills a real bonus but not needed.
    We of course have other things apart from firewood to do so happy to have you if you don't,t have forestry skills.
    We will exchange for a comfortable bed in a cozy caravan and good home cooking.
    We have hens, ducks, sometimes bees, cows, a friendly cat and a lovely dog.

    You are welcome to come and go to suit your tramping (etc.) that you would like to do in the area. Accommodation suits for a couple or 2 singles as have single and double bed in caravan.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Good to have a car, but if not we can pick you up or drop you off from St. Arnaud or Nelson to suit.
    Plenty of beautiful tramps available within the area (Nelson lakes National park), such as the scenic ridge track going to Angelus hut, Mount Robert loop and the lake shore track to Whiskey Falls. In winter time, we are also 15 minutes to the entrance of Rainbow ski field.

    We live mostly off grid using solar energy (generator back-up at night) and spring fed water. We do not have internet access and have very limited phone reception, but a short drive will put you into reception. A great way to get away from the hassle of modern life, but can still get to when needed.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️ We can't always check our email regularly since we don't have continuous access to internet. Apologies in advance for any delay in response.

    We hope to meet you soon !

    Helen and Paul (aka Bromzy)
