  • Description


    We are Tom and Bec, and our 2 boys Huxley (10) and Nate (8). We currently live in Launceston Tasmania, and operate 2 BnBs from here. We have a sister BnB which we have established in Burnie which is approximately 1.5 hours drive from us.

    We are looking for workawayers (ideally a couple) to be our live-in hosts. All the processes and procedures are set and the property has been set up to 'run itself' with all communication directed to us, all guests are prepaid, self check-in, and do their own self-prepared breakfasts, so the role is more of a social one giving you a chance to interact with guests from all over the world, and the opportunity to see a bit more of our beautiful state of Tasmania.

    Workawayers will enjoy meeting people from all over the world, that come and stay at our B&B in Burnie. You will get to live somewhere beautiful and be able to use our place as a hub to explore Tassie! We also have other properties in Launceston that would give you the opportunity to do a 'location swap' for a short period to be able to get out and explore more.

    We are currently seeking a couple or two close friends to live in our B&B in Burnie, Tasmania. We would like them to act as the 'social face' of the property to relieve us of on-site duties such as dishes, greeting guests, preparing welcome letters, setting up breakfast baskets, room cleaning, yard work, hosting Meet & Greets with our guests, etc in exchange for accommodation in a beautiful old (and immaculately renovated) historic mansion and payment. We have 6 guest rooms on-site. We are looking to expand over time and are constantly renovating and improving.

    The role involves all the 'hands on' duties of running the BnB on a daily basis. We offer payment on a per-checkout basis in addition to free accommodation, internet & utilities.

    Tassie is an amazing location, and the North West has plenty to offer, including being close to Cradle Mountain, Tassies iconic site, nightly penguin sightings, beautiful coastal scenery and some of the most spectacular patchwork farm land in the world.
    Time off can be arranged in advance, and access to a work vehicle for business tasks may also be able to be made available for private trips.
