Hi! We are two teachers and live in a beautiful part of Queensland on five acres. We are only an hour from the beach, an hour from the mountains and rainforest, and an hour from the Sunshine Coast. Our two children are now both at university so we are empty nesters. My husband is a manual arts teacher and I am a home economics teacher so I love to cook! I am looking forward to learning some new dishes from people who stay with us and sharing unique Australian recipes. We love to travel and have travelled to many countries over the last twenty years.
We live in a beautiful spot, you will see wallabies each morning and evening sitting on our verandah. As a home economics teacher I would love to share my love of cooking with our guest.
As we have been super busy in the last year we have fallen very behind on the gardening. We are looking for someone to do some weeding, some mulching, some mowing (ride-on provided) and some general maintenance around the yard. We would be very flexible around when the work was done during the week. We live a 15 minute drive away from the nearest town, and there is no public transport close by, so it would be preferable if you have your own transport. But we are happy to drive you to the nearest train or bus station on the weekend if you would like to sightsee.
We have a four bedroom house and our visitor/s will have their own bedroom and bathroom. They would need to prepare their own breakfast and lunch each day but we would love it if they would join us for dinner each night. I miss cooking for lots of people! We have an inground pool which you would be very welcome to use.
We have a small maltese who is super friendly so you would need to like dogs. Wifi is available but not unlimited as we are in a regional area, so we would ask that you be aware of this when using the internet. Whilst we love entertaining, neither of us are heavy drinkers or party people so our lifestyle would not suit someone who is. We are looking for a non-smoker please. We own a 1965 Mustang and enjoy going on runs in the local area. You would be more than welcome to join us if that interests you.
