  • Description

    Description

    We are a family living in the hills behind Byron Bay. We have 2 sons , twins aged 12 involved in all kinds of sports and music. We breed Labradors and have 7 gorgeous females, and currently have 11 puppies born at the end of May and 3 larger chocolate pups who are 12 weeks old now. We also have donkeys, alpacas and lots of chickens. We are 25 minutes to Byron, 15 to Mullumbimby and 2 minutes from Federal. Live on 50 acres. We have a fully self contained cottage on our property that you could live in while you are here and are welcome to eat on your own in the cottage or with us as a family. We are just a typical Australian family, and would love the opportunity to help you learn English and learn about our way our life. We would love ideally a couple to help us generally and be part of our family while you are here. Gardening, help on the farm with the animals, help looking after the puppies, housework - that kind of thing. Ideally a couple would be great so we could get work done outside and inside as well. Someone with building and maintenance experience would go to the top of the list! The cottage has a big bedroom with a queen size bed so plenty of room. We also have a spare car you can use while you are here to see all the beautiful sites in our local area. Look forward to hearing from you.
