We are a family of 4, Kurt, Lisa, Beauden (6) and Axel (3) in the South Wairarapa of New Zealand.
We live on a large Sheep and Beef farm which Kurt manages full time, and Lisa works on part time.
We're a busy bunch, and would love to share our corner of the world with guests who could use a place to stay and are interested in the kiwi way of life.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Our Farm offers accommodation and tours, as well as working with our own wool and honey products.
We'd love to show you how New Zealand agriculture works, and how we involve ourselves in the tourism industry.
The help we would be looking for would be a bit of mix of things!
We would welcome travellers who are interested in helping out all over the show, including gardening and assisting with preparations for home renovations and general household chores.
If it suited both parties there could also be some occasional babysitting.
The accommodation available is a spare room with a queen bed, or two single beds in our family home, while you won't have your own bathroom, we do have two in the house.
We live near popular tourist spots: Ngawi Seal Colony, Martinborough Vineyards, Cape Palliser Lighthouse, Putangirua Pinnacles (as seen on Lord of the Rings).
Lisa also travels to Martinborough most days which offers a bus service around the Wairarapa as well as a bus to the train station which can take you to New Zealand's capital city - Wellington.
