The Experience

We’ve recently built a wonderfully energy-efficient passive solar house, complete with off-grid solar for all our energy needs, rainwater collection for all our water needs, and a worm farm waste management system for natural black and grey water processing. We’re now working to progress the landscaping aspects of our project. We’d be very appreciative of a helping hand or two to help complete: a natural habitat pond, garden beds, and orchard.

The family were absolutely amazing hosts. I got a home away from home and I loved that they included me in their family life. They're very flexible and you will definitely get what they're promising you. The food was amazing and I enjoyed interacting with Kerryn in the kitchen. Being her sous-chef was probably one of my favorite parts of the stay. Richard's communication is amazing and he's got serious planning skills. The daughters were such sweethearts, I really enjoyed spending my free time with them! The property and the house are amazing! I loved my stay here, thanks!

We had a great experience - Richard and his family made us feel very welcome, and we made lovely memories. Richard is a flexible manager and wanted to ensure we still enjoyed time off. The workload was varied, we learnt a lot, and it felt like we made a good contribution to the project. Do be prepared that the work can be quite physically demanding. We really enjoyed the food, and liked socialising over dinner. Our worldpackers experience at the home will stay with us so we're very grateful - thanks to Richard and his family :)

I had a truly wonderful experience in the home! Richard, Kerryn, Lyra and Kayley make you feel like home straight away. Richard is a great manager when it comes to work - the instructions and tasks are clear, the hours are flexible, and Richard is always there to help you out if you need. The house has a wonderful location, only 10 mins away by car from the beaches, and in a very harmonic setting. Whenever you want to go to the town or the beach, Richard will be happy to give you a lift and give his best advice for sightseeing around. Totally recommend! <3

I had a great time at the home. Richard and Kerryn are lovely and welcoming hosts and they and the kids gave me the feeling to be part of the family. We did quite a few nice trips together They have also been very obliging to help me getting a car and planning my further trip. The work was diversified and you have the feeling to have a true impact on the project. The working hours are well organized, but you still got the freedom to choose when to do the work. The food was very nice aswell:) The In general I would totally recommend staying at the home as it is a great experience.
