    Description

    Hi everyone
    we are Yane, Peter and Lorena , living on and maintaining four houses on a bush property in the foothills of the Blue Mountains . We enjoy sharing our life with travellers, showing them the Bluey's (Blue Mountains) We can always do with some help in the garden landscaping and in and around the houses to keep them up and running. We have many interests including music, bushwalking, canyoning, yoga and many more, if you play piano, guitar, ukulele, violin your a winner...
    Yane is Danish/Australian, Peter has Danish/Canadian background and Lorena is German/ Argentinian. Some times Lorenas children stay with us, which is good fun. We enjoy working on and planning different projects that arise here. Peter's mum Yane lives in a house nearby and always loves a helping hand in the garden or cleaning some windows. She makes a great cup of tea :) we also have two chickens, sue and Jenny! :)

    You will be encouraged to play some music :) weather and time permitting we can go canyoning and for some good bush walks. The historic towns Windsor and Richmond are not too far away. We have lived on this property for nearly 50 years, so you could say we are locals and we know the local area...
