We're a couple (and one year old pup called Rua) living across from a lovely beach in Omapere, Hokianga. Laurence (30) is a winemaker who has recently set up a small winery here and Rebecca (30) works from home for a publishing company.
We're looking for a couple or friends to help us with a few projects - help to renovate an old bungalow, helping with our gardens and fruit trees, and occasionally helping on our families small goat farm.

We live in a unique part of New Zealand that is rather isolated and incredibly beautiful. We enjoy introducing people to the Hokianga and a slower pace of life. Eating from our vegetable garden, walking on the beach and being connected to surrounding nature. There are many things happening in our community - yoga, community garden, nursery help, volunteering in the forest, beer making, pottery, etc
We're looking for a range of skills but more importantly people with positive attitudes and a willingness to help! Gardening knowledge, tree pruning, building/home renovations, house painting and general help around the home would all be a great help to us!
We can accommodate people in a self contained studio apartment - a large bedroom with queen bed, small kitchen and bathroom. The studio is connected to the main house with a private entrance. We welcome guest to join us for main meals and appreciate peoples need for privacy. Happy to work around dietary requirements.
There is lots to explore in this area and plenty of space for thinking. Local activities include horse riding, fishing and diving, walking tracks, sand dunes, native forests, swimming, kayaking, local artist groups, markets and more. We do recommend having your own transport as there is no public transport here.
