  • Description

    Description

    I'm an elderly widow. I live on 100 isolated acres in the middle of the forest in SW WA, with much wildlife and birds around me. I have horses, big dogs, chickens and ducks - and sorry, no mobile phone signal! Helpers can keep me company when I ride - I can teach you if you are a beginner - and can help with gardening and animal care. I'm a retired teacher who can help with language practice, but you'd need to have basic English. There are places around for interesting sightseeing. If you like the bush and animals, you might like it here !

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    There's plenty of wildlife and nature, and as a teacher, am happy to work on language skills and to discuss culture. I have travelled in many Asian and African countries and enjoy hearing about other parts of the world. I am happy to take visitors to see some places of interest locally.

    You need to be willing to get dirty - animal care and gardening is messy - and you must like dogs.

    Accommodation

    I live in a small house. You'd have a bedroom to yourself, or 2 would share the room. I do the laundry. Food is basic but abundant - I can cater for vegetarians.

    What else ...

    There's a train/bus from Perth to here, and some helpers have their own cars. Otherwise, I pick you up in Northcliffe and will take you to local sightseeing places. I am quiet ,read a lot and watch TV in the evening - mornings are early, and so are evenings for me. You are free to stay up !
