  • Description


    Hi there - we are small but fun and kind family living in a cozy, sunny home near the beach in Coogee, Sydney. We have a lovely spare room and we'd be pleased to host a person or a couple who would like to improve their English, learn about the Australian way of life and help us around the house.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live 10 minutes walk from Coogee Beach. We could help you practice English, learn about Sydney and Australia and learn about native plants. We can also introduce you to Sydney's coastal suburbs - walking, surfing, swimming, kayaking.

  • Help


    We are looking for someone who is positive, curious and fun. It would be great if you liked to paint walls, garden or just help around the house with cooking, walking our dog or other odd jobs for us.

  • Accommodation


    We have a lovely private room in our home. It would suit a single person or a couple. We can also offer you breakfast and lunch. We don't eat at home every night but if we are home we are happy to share dinner as well. You might like to cook sometimes too (that would be great!)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live close to the beach (10 minutes walk) and very close to all public transport that can get you to the Sydney city sights. I live with my 16 year old son who is curious, kind and very sporty. He likes playing all sorts of sports, surfs and plays music. We are fun, positive, kind, adventurous and caring family-oriented people.

    Please feel welcome to come stay!
