    We’d love to meet you!
    We are seeking help in regular jobs that always need doing around our property. These include gardening, stone masonry, carpentry, cleaning, childcare, firewood, and a multitude of other jobs that need doing on a farm.

    The place is set in a secluded & magical valley 5 mins Lake Hawea & 20mins from Wanaka. Our 14 acre family property has fruit orchards, vege gardens & delicious food aplenty. We harvest/preserve, care for gardens, mow lawns & regular building projects. Accommodation is a cute cottage with mountain views.
    Our home is perfect for an individual or a couple.

    We are a large family and enjoy having guests who take part and muck in. Anna is a musician and Locky is a carpenter. Matilda is 11 and Oscar is 8. We love learning different languages, recipes and music from our workaway visitors.
    We also appreciate those who are self-directed for times when we can't work with you. We love helpers who incorporate well into family life, help out with cooking, dishes and general life stuff beyond the tasks set, and being a part of modelling to our children how to do life.

    We're looking forward to your visit with us :0)

    Mostly we work in the garden and on the property.
    There's always plenty happening in the way of projects and lots of jobs are focused around organic gardening, food prep and sometimes construction.

    We have a horse, sheep, chickens, 2 dogs and a kitten on the property. We live on the family property with multiple dwellings housing Locky’s parents, who moved to the property over 40 years ago, Locky’s sister and her teens and several others who live in the various studios and cottages spotted about the place.

    Our two children Matilda & Oscar love having new people in our home, and we highly encourage helpers to share their food, language and culture with us all.

    We love health and yoga and are always open to massage therapists and holistic health practitioners joining us.

    We love to eat, and regularly enjoy wild meat, home grown veggies and preserves from our garden, so guests who love sharing recipes are always appreciated.

    We have a sleepout bedroom, and bathroom is shared inside the house.
    Both options have gorgeous mountain views and offer you privacy.
    When the cottage is being used by guests and family we offer a retro caravan in summer that has a cosy double bed.

    We ask our helpers for 4-5hr each day in exchange for food and lodgings so as to allow for set up and pack down.
    We also ask that our helpers participate in general tidy up after meals, and keeping bathroom spaces clean and tidy daily.

    Our home is situated at the base of a mountain track (a stunning day walk) and a 5min drive or 20min walk to the lake.
    There's so much to do here, particularly if you love the great outdoors

    We often have guests staying with us, as we have a large collection of friends from our own travels around the world, and the Nook is a pretty desirable destination to visit. This means our guest accommodation is sometimes unavailable, so if you have a camper this can help if you are keen to stay during times that we have guests.
