We (Natalie and Gavin) are in the outer Pelorus sounds, boat access only.We eat a lot of seafood and locally caught wild game and try to grow our own veg. We use solar power. Love of the remote quiet life is essential. We are not fully organic as Wakatahuri is a boat building bay with a working slip way.In the bay are: Gavin (4th generation owner of the land), fisherman and boat builder, Natalie, cook, gardener and worker organiser,Polly the dog, Mog the cat, Delilah the baby goat, fat sheep : Smurfette, Doris, Dolly, Rowlock and Scupper and 5 lambs, Goats : LillyPing her twins, and her last baby Gumdrop and her baby, and some chooks.

We live off grid, partly self sufficiently. I hunt and butcher all our meat, and for people with the right attitude am prepared to take helpers hunting. I make my own bread and can offer spinning and knitting skills to learn. We are also boaties, so rowing, sculling and fishing are on offer. We have kayaks and canoes and in summer swimming and diving.
Who we are looking for:
People who are fit energetic and love the sea, and who can handle remoteness and our clutter.
Most of our work is fairly physical - Scrub cutting, fencing, digging, fire wood, tree planting and there are some lighter work like wood borer treating timber, weeding, painting and general maintenance work.
My current projects are: firewood , Firewood, using the digger to clean up a hill slip! And dig a road extension, Cottage restoration and a big beach erosion project. And spring gardening.
Double beds in sleepouts, sharing the family house for meals and general living. I do most of the cooking as I only shop every couple of months.
Sorry but at the moment we can not cater for vegetarians or other special dietary requirements.
We expect 4 hours work in return for a bed (double rooms in the comfy outside sleepout), 5 meals a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner, morning (if your up early enough) and afternoon tea),the odd glass of homebrew beer and the use of our recreational gear - sea kayaks, canoes, dingies, fishing gear. We have little blue penguins in the bay and great places to walk. Minimum stay needs to be at least 10 days as its a 5 hour round trip to Elaine bay. The Havelock mailboat on its Friday round is also a transport option and is $50
