We are a small, friendly, working family with one small dog living in a quiet, picturesque part of Sydney, 5 minutes walk to the beach. We are non smokers and expect that you are too. The city of Sydney is a 40 minute bus ride away.
Mother is a school teacher, husband is a semi retired plumber. We have 2 daughters. One lives in London and our 27 year old daughter, lives at home, works in real estate and loves to ride horses. We are well travelled and enjoy hosting interesting and helpful guests. We are happy to host travellers who are neat and tidy and are able to work unsupervised on a job. We prefer longer stay helpers and we do not take people seeking jobs or already employed. We are especially interested in taking anyone who can cook, clean, iron etc and don't mind a little bit of gardening and walking a dog. We are NOT vegetarians so works best if you are not as well.

One small dog lives in the house with us so you MUST love dogs and be happy to play with them and take them for walks
We are non smokers and expect our guests to be as well.
We are NOT vegetarians so we do not provide a vegetarian diet, best if you eat meat.

Those who choose to stay with us enjoy sharing lots of conversation learning about each other's culture. Cooking together in our large modern kitchen. Long walks along the coast, meeting our neighbours and joining family activities if you choose. Sharing family time each evening over dinner. We know Australia very well so we are happy to advise on activities and make suggestions on how to spend your free time. We also love to play golf so let us know if you also play golf and if you have a golfing handicap:)
