    Super Host
  • Beschreibung


    Recently separated dad of intelligent, creative and kind 6 and 7 year old boys. We live in a Tudor style house in a lovely setting right beside the ocean. I am primarily a traveller and adventurer who has spent time in over 50 countries. I’ve stayed with and hosted hundreds of travellers over the past 20 years both through Workaway and the Couchsurfing website. Currently running a consulting firm managing the design and construction of large capital asset projects. I’m passionate about sustainable construction practices and have a few projects on the go. My boys alternate week on week off between their mum and me so there would be lots of quiet time on the off weeks to spend time in the garden or go sightseeing.

    We hope you'll learn lots about a young, growing family...we are still constantly learning to adapt to our new lifestyle with children in a very peaceful city, after many years of partying and travel! Erik has plenty of knowledge to share in the construction area. There are many areas to focus and learn from which one you like as long as you communicate with us what you are looking for, we are happy to accommodate! We are always striving to create the perfect life balance.
    We hope you have an open mind and can have some fun playing with the kids!

    ***UPDATE MAY 2022***

    Currently, I’m looking for help playing with and doing activities with the children and with household duties, work in the garden and some light construction and maintenance projects. There is a lot to stay busy!

    With the boys, it would be a balance between taking them on walks to beaches and forest nearby, chilling out at home playing games or in the yard and a little school work and tv for balance. They are super fun dudes and love interacting with adults!

    We live in a spacious, country home in a gorgeous, quiet area of Victoria one block from the ocean. You will have your own private bedroom with queen sized bed, in a quiet area of the house. You'll share a large bathroom with tub/shower and there’s a hot-tub on the back deck which you are welcome to use. It's great! There are lots of places inside and out to find privacy.
