  • Beschreibung


    This is a 100yr old heritage guesthouse located in the pretty village of Blackheath in the scenic Blue Mountains.
    Margaret & Rowan purchased this place in 2014 after being inspired while cycling the Camino trail in Spain. It is run as a home-from-home accommodation focusing on travellers coming to bushwalk, mountainbike and climb in the Blue Mountains. This place can sleep 30 guests and offers a range of accommodation from dorm rooms to delux rooms with private bathroom.
    Originally from South Africa, we traded in our professional jobs in Sydney for a new life in the mountains to be closer to nature. We both love cycling, camping, and meeting people from around the world. We eat vegetarian and love eating foods from around the world.
    We have been hosts for another helpers website for over 3 years, but just signed up with Workaway.

    We are always looking for enthusiastic travellers with a positive attitude and good work ethics.
    Workawayers are not asked to help directly with paying guests nor with housekeeping.

    We offer Workawayers the opportunity to live with us, learn english, become part of our family, learn about the hospitality industry, learn to cook, get access to the beautiful blue mountains. They help us with projects such as gardening, composting, seed planting, cooking for the team, creative projects such as art work, flower arranging, history collections. We assess what their skills and interests are and have them help in areas where they are comfortable to contribute.

    In return we provide a friendly environment, we are encouraging, supportive, generous and kind hearted. Staying with us is an enriching experience.

    Possibility of paid Housekeeping work for Workawayers with a WHV if suitably qualified, and if vacancy exists.

    There are many projects that we need help with here. Gardening, maintenance, cooking. We will allocate projects depending on the travellers interest. Prior experience is not necessary, but a positive can-do attitude is essential. We are not to be viewed as a place to get free board and lodging.
