  • Description

    Description

    Alpacas and mini highland cows on a 15 acre plot in the Bay of Islands need your help! We have 6 alpacas, three cows, ducks, roosters, peahens and some mad guinea fowl and our lovely dog, Honey. We're originally from Kenya, used to run a backpackers there, so we love meeting new people and talking about their travels. We constantly need people to help out - whether it's a new project or tweaking an old one!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    It's a fun way to get to know alpacas and highland cows - you can interact as much or as little as you want. Our ducks are an endless source of amusement and the guinea fowl are simply delightfully mad.

    Help

    We're looking for a couple who can help out around the property from feeding the alpacas to helping out around the house or using the ride on mower, for a couple of hours a day. We're pretty easy going about hours so you would have plenty of time to do your own thing but we really are looking for a couple to come and stay for a while, ideally a month or more!

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Accommodation is a cabin in the garden, separate from the main house, with a small kitchen/dining area and bathroom. You'd have your own space and privacy, complete with a small bbq to use. For a couple of hours work we wouldnt provide food, you would be totally independent.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    In the 'Winterless North' ideally situated in between Kerikeri and Waipapa with the famous Rainbow Falls just a stroll away. There's no public transport here so a car would be handy but not vital if you dont mind a walk. Pahia is about 20 mins away....a great place to explore the Bay of Islands - we have a bike you can borrow.
