    Hi my name is Geoff and we are currently looking for help in our small Homestay on Auckland's West Coast of New Zealand. You will share with my family of 12 year old son, Layla the dog and about 7 or 8 chickens :)

    AVAILABILITY 2022 (updated 17th Nov 2022)
    From
    20 - 30 Nov
    4-13 Dec
    15-22 Dec

    Helping here is an opportunity for members of Workaway to have a unique NZ cultural experience in the remote coastal village of Piha Beach in the Waitakere Ranges Regional Park.

    Preferably you can help for period of at least 3 weeks.

    We can only book a few months ahead for our helpers so when you know your travel plans in our area send us an email and we can figure out the best time for you to come.

    -Gender: male/female (so we can match helpers sharing accommodation)
    -Age
    -Nationality
    -Past experience,

    Please note that this is not full-time employment, it is an opportunity to stay by a beautiful beach. to meet other people and experience the remote coastal village and surrounding beaches and forests. Essentially it is work in exchange for accommodation.

    As a Workawayer your intention should be that you genuinely wish to help and learn new things and enjoy a NZ experience with us

    We can provide accommodation which will be deducted from your pay, but not food, other than from the garden and eggs from the chickens =)

    There is no major supermarket at Piha so best to do all your food shopping before you arrive here (although we can give you a ride to the supermarket during your stay) Also no ATM or petrol station.

    Please make sure you have researched the area and that it is a place you would like to stay as it is quite remote from the city/urban life

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    It is a homely atmosphere here with plenty of social interaction with the guests from around the world and the friendly Piha locals. Also a good opportunity to improve your English language.

    Experience the New Zealand culture and people- We visit local community events for example ANZAC day and visit the local clubs - the Piha RSA, Piha Surf Lifesaving Club, Piha Bowling Club where you can meet local people and experience the real New Zealand culture and not the usual tourist thing. As this is also my home with my family of my 12 year old son and Layla the dog we have birthdays and other holiday celebrations which you can be involved in.

    Learn about gardening and NZ native plants and the removal of invasive weeds with our project restoring the native ecosystem on the property and in the local community.

    Learn and improve your surfing skills. Piha is popular for surfing and a hub for beach culture. I can give you my local knowledge and advice as a Piha Lifeguard and Surfer.

    You will also learn how to run a guesthouse and we can teach you to use the booking management system (several of our helpers have gone on to open their own accommodation businesses after their experience here)

    Learn the guitar - we have two here for you to use and many of our helpers have started playing guitar while staying here.
    There are also many awesome bush and beach walks and waterfalls nearby and you will have plenty of time off to explore the area and its and culture.
