Private, self-contained accomodation separate to main homestead, perfect for singles, friends or couples. 3 x main meals & accomodation in exchange for 5hrs work per day, 5 days per week. Work involves gardening/weeding, maintenance, special projects, help around the house/property & playing with our kids & dogs.
15 minutes drive to nearest town. 20 minute drive to pristine beaches. Farm & surrounds is home to kangaroos, wallabies, frogs, birds, lizards & various other wildlife. Farm is NOT within walking distance to town. This is part of the appeal ... we’re in a beautiful, peaceful, bush location. Travellers without a car must be content to spend their relaxation time on the farm.
Applicants must have a reasonable level of English. Must enjoy children & dogs. Regret we cannot accomodate vegan/celiac diets. 2-week stays preferred. Longer stays considered after initial 2 weeks. Help needed throughout 2019. Please, please please do not apply if you’re not willing to leave the place the way you found it (ie: thoroughly clean your accomodation before you leave & respect our property). Thank you for considering us as your Hosts! :) Note: our farm is NO SMOKING 🚭

Gardening, help around the house/property, cleaning, general maintenance, engaging with our family/children/dogs.
Self-contained accomodation with own kitchen & bathroom. Washing machine available free of charge. Provisions given for breakfast & lunch (make yourself at your leisure). Join us at main homestead for a home-cooked dinner most evenings. Help is appreciated during evening meal preparation times to entertain our 3 boys (ages 5, 10 & 12yrs), and to assist with clearing/washing up after dinner.
Regret we can’t accomodate vegan/celiac diets - sorry! Washing machine is available for use. Wi-Fi is available at the main house only. Note that the main house is located 5 mins UPHILL from the worker accomodation. There will be times when you need to walk up that hill!!! The property itself is also quite hilly & quite spread out so a reasonable level of fitness is required.
Plenty of books & dvd’s in your accomodation for relaxation time. Juggling balls. Water colour paints. Jigsaw puzzles. Private deck attached to your accomodation overlooking our rose fields & sparkling dam. Ocean horizon. Neighbours are friendly. Local beaches & townships are accessible if you have a car. Rides into town with us are possible when we’re heading there anyway, to connect with local bus service. The Coffs Coast is beautiful, check it out online.
