Area: MuglaWe are a small family consisting of my husband, me and our baby who was born on the 2nd December 2011. I am an English tarot reader and writer, who used to live in London working in the film industry. My boyfriend is a Turkish accountant with a love for çay and raki! We are keen to bring a community vibe into our little flat; music, good food, laughter, dancing, group meditation... whatever, we'll see what talents and energies you bring. We are open to people from all backgrounds to share stories and mealtimes with. Bring your yoga mat and musical instrument if you have them! Please note: We are not a guest house. The town of Fethiye and the surrounding villages along the turquoise coast is a beautiful area with endless things to do. We can recommend the best markets, boat trips, scuba dives and absails, or walking routes and beaches if you are just looking for a relaxing way to spend your free time. There is a dolmus (minibus - 3 mins walk) to take you into the centre of Fethiye, or you can walk in about 20-25 mins and lots of clubs and bars, shops and restaurants about 10 mins ride from our house.
Area: tamparuli, sabahGreetings from "The Land Below The Wind" - Sabah, Malaysia's North Borneo. My name is Tina, a local of Kota Kinabalu , and my Australian husband Daniel have settled in a beautiful valley around 250 meters above sea level with our pets and we would like to invite you to experience rural living in the tropics. Located approximately 40km North of Kota Kinabalu just an hour’s drive from Kota Kinabalu International Airport. We live nearby a very peaceful village and our neighbour is about 1km away. The nearest town is Tamparuli which is around 5.5km from the property. Tamparuli town is situated along the way to UNESCO world heritage listed Mt Kinabalu National Park, the town is also well known for its big suspension foot bridge - there's even a popular song about it!... every Wednesday, indigenous farmers and traders gather at the "Tamu" where visitors come to shop for local produce, rural residents from the hills do their weekly shopping and meet up under the bright umbrellas and raintrees...it certainly is very colourful scene. Tuaran beach is roughly 20km from town and Kiulu white water rafting less than 20min away. Our property is surrounded by rubber trees and secondary jungle. We are currently building up a 10acre fruit orchard, which primarily consists of the king of fruits durian. Other tropical fruit trees include; tarap, mango, rambutan,watermelon, pineapples and many other fun things. We have just started phase 2 of our project which is building a guesthouse.we hope to have the bulk of the work done by december 2014.Local contractors are working at our place daily but the serenity wont be affected too badly as we are doing minimal earthworks and heavy construction.We dont ask volunteers to work onsite due to safety issues, theres more than enough other supporting work to do in anycase! If you enjoy the heat, peace and outdoor work then our property is perfect Workaway holiday for you!
Area: QueenslandIf you love wildlife, the outdoors, great views and good food, send us an email. No smokers or vegetarians thank you. Check out our site at ironbarkgrange.com.au and the blog on this site which has a few videos of what we are about. Please note: WE DO NOT TAKE SMOKERS OR VEGETARIANS. The property is located 60km South of Brisbane and 20km West of the Gold Coast on the upper North slope of Mt Tamborine, 320m above sea level. We are surrounded by National Parks and abundant wildlife. The property is 8.35Ha with a sub-tropical climate and has great country views to the North up to 120km on a clear day. We also have a tennis court, an outdoor cobb pizza oven, chooks/geese, two dalmatian dogs, a vegetable garden and about 300 fruit trees. Work outside is a major part of what we do so expect to be outside on a rural property as part of the experience. The design of the property has been along Permaculture principles. This includes rainwater collection, composting waste disposal, integration of animals and gardens, integrated pest management and the use of limited chemicals is done in a sustainable manner. The house is designed and built by ourselves. It is large and modern and has been constructed using high mass walls and floors, good insulation in the roof, walls and double glazing throughout. Careful attention has been paid to window shading to minimise solar gain in summer and allow some heating in Winter. We transport our helpers on their day off to Tamborine mountain (a major tourist attraction) or the nearest transport centre so that they can expore the area. Wireless and hard wire internet is made available to all our helpers. We pick up our helpers from the Beenleigh Bus Transit Centre, under the big roof of the centre. This is in Beenleigh, approximately 25km South of Brisbane and is next to the Beenleigh Train station. We love lamb roasts, cuisine from different lands and good wine. Come and share the experience with us.

Dancho and I (Elly) need a bit of help with the management of a beautiful garden, numerous fruit trees, and a new plot of 2000m2 which we are working towards being full of vegetables. We are down as new hosts but there have been volunteers helping here over the last 7 years and loads has happened because of their help and enthusiasm. We were both involved with volunteers during that time but now are looking forwards to doing the hosting ourselves. We hope you will be able to come and volunteers with us?!
