Come and enjoy Nelson - the "sunshine capital" of New Zealand! You will discover a paradise here with stunning scenery, a wide choice of outdoor activities as well as a wealth of art and cultural events.
We live on a beautiful, park-like 2 acre property that has a very peaceful, rural feel - yet we are just a 10 minute drive to the centre of Nelson city where you'll find shopping, world famous Markets, great cafés and restaurants, a cinema, theatre and special events every month of the year.
This is a great base for exploring the beautiful Nelson/Tasman/Golden Bay areas. We are also less than a 2 hour drive to Blenheim/Picton and the ferry to the North Island.
We moved to Nelson about 4 years ago and need help developing and maintaining our property.

We are looking for people to help with a range of things including gardening, landscaping, wood splitting, building projects, painting and general housework.
We expect each person to help 4 hours a day, 5 days a week plus help out in the kitchen with food preparation and tidy up. You may sometimes want to help extra so that you can spend 2 days off exploring the area. We will provide you with a bedroom and healthy vegetarian food. Your own transport will be needed.
Let us know what your skills and interests are. We are looking for strong, energetic people who are mature, responsible, self motivated and live with positive values. We look forward to welcoming you into our home to share our lives and have some fun while we work together.
