Job Description


Are you looking to hang out at the start of the awesome Abel Tasman for a while? We have a new availability for an awesome Reception, Housekeeper, and All Rounder role until May. A great opportunity for the right person so do get in touch.

We are The Barn Cabins and Camp out in the beautiful National Park village called Marahau. Come on over and see what we are about. We have a range of accommodation and tourism options, a nursery, activities on our doorstep, farm-raised meat, a veggie garden and some chickens running around. There is also the Park Cafe down the road that does a great weekly open mic night in the Summer.

We are looking for a fun, hard-working and enthusiastic person who is looking to have a great time working right at the start of the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park. The work will be housekeeping/reception/sales/check in duties and keeping the place tidy, helping out in the nursery and odd jobs around the place. We are also a tourism booking office, so someone who is keen to experience the beautiful Abel Tasman and get into the outdoors so they can then support guests with their trip planning is great! If you have experience in housekeeping, reception, tourism or other creative talents do let us know in your application. We really are looking for the right person who really wants to be here. The Barn is iconic and an experience for guests, and staff play an integral role in that. So, it is important to be really sure this is right for you and you’re not just looking for a 'job' to fill time.

• Accommodation is provided onsite in your own shared facilities cabin for $150 per week.
• Minimum stay is 10 weeks for this role, exceptions can be made for the right person.

• Good attention to detail and able to be hands on with housekeeping and running a team once trained.
• We serve barista coffee here so it is a bonus to be able to make coffee, this is not essential though (full training provided).
• Excellent customer service, enthusiasm, great teamwork, and a proactive nature will set you up well for this role. Being flexible working with others and on your own is important as some days are busy and some days are quiet.
• Must be available to be on call for up to 2x nights a week.
• You need to have a valid Working Holiday Visa, IRD tax number and a NZ bank account.
