    We don't mind short stays.. we've had people stay with us for 3- 4 nights... and we are open to long term stays too.. in fact welcome them.

    Big, Beautiful, mostly quiet house

    We live near the water - a bay and the beautiful beaches of Cronulla are not far away
    ( 5 min drive = 20 min walk)

    Lots of beautiful trees in our suburb.

    We have 2 three year old dogs (Pomeranian Boo and Bear)
    & two 12 year old cats- Pippa and Nila (a friendly cat black and a shy white rag doll)

    Located in the southern suburbs of Sydney ( Caringbah South)
    to get to the CBD is about 50 mins by train
    35 mins to airport by train.
    20-40 min walk from our house to the train station. But there are buses 5 min walk away too.
    7 min drive
    I have an older bike you can use

    We have a salt water pool now with mineral salts!! Not heated though. I only use it in summer but if you're into Wim Hof you might want to dip in.

    All of our home water is filtrated as we have
    "Complete home water filtration " installed..
    so that's showers as well as sinks.. everything even the laundry!

    I've always been passionate about looking after the Earth. I am into natural products, no chemicals as I am a sensitive person too.

    House goals:
    Aim to be plastic free
    To be fully decluttered
    To be enticing (with nice objects and design)
    To be fun
    Organic or natural

    I had an organic ecommerce shop -which is offline (I am a reseller - I don't make anything from scratch.. that's too much work. )
    I still have lots of organic products and do buy them when needed
    we use all over the house and cook with..I have taken my website offline- it has a lot of eco travel tips in the free resource section.

    I have to look after my feet by resting them whenever I need - if you can do reflexology or massage ( I have two massage machines you can use on me, yourself or anyone would be greatly appreciated)

    I created my businesses so I could be off my feet but none of them are making money atm. I am also looking for income.

    If you could help me restart or grow my businesses would be much appreciated and if it makes enough money for me to thrive I can pay you! If it turned into a job for someone I would love that as my intention originally was to help create jobs for other humans and do good for the planet.

    My father is a retired Dr- a Radiologist and my mother was a Primary Teacher from Boston, USA- she lived and taught primary school at a US Army base in Spain for 4 years-where my folks met. They married and lived in London then Canada and finally went to Australia in the 70s and had my sister and I (who decided to go to heaven/Vahalla/Nirvana)

    We lived in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia for 5 years from 79-84 (and before that the USA) and have been in Sydney since.

    I worked in South Korea teaching English for one year in 2000 in Je-cheon.

    My mom just turned 90 my dad is 84.
    I'm 52.
    I've been living with them since 2011 when my van was stolen.
    I went through major depression as I turned 40 that year, couldn't get things happening.. have been here since but have created 3 businesses in that time and have created a lot of good memories with my folks.. as we had a difficult relationship all of my teens and young adult life.

    My parents no longer drive dad sleeps a lot ..and mum had a hip replacement which causes her to get quite tired and likes to watch tv, do crosswords, read or hopefully will start doing her crafts- quilting etc soon- they both will like your company and are nice people- probably nicer to you t so that creates a bit of tension from time to time.. its not always peaceful here but we are getting on better all the time and I take good care of them. I get counselling.

    We have solar panels, a worm farms for composting (we need help with that), 4 rain water tanks and we grow a few herbs.

    Mum and Pop need companionship, help with lots of things-, decluttering,
    driving theme to places.. we have a good car you can drive.
    We really appreciate your help ~

    I'd really like music lessons- piano or guitar or even advanced ukulele.

    Massage! I have two massage machines if you are able to use them on anyone here.

    So the hours or chores would roughly be
    So 1-3 hours of cleaning plus walking the dogs in the morning.
    1 hour of cooking (either lunch or dinner)
    2-3 hours of gardening. or companionship/helping my folks
    The hours are 5 a day and can be split accordingly.

    Music teaching of course comes off your hours as does massage, healing, and computer/business help.

  • Unterkunft


    We have two guest rooms- each has a single bed so we don't have a room for couples yet.. maybe we will in the future but couples are welcome to stay if you are happy with having your own rooms.

    I have turned the larger one into Pollie's craft room as she really needs an outlet.
    This is our back up room in case we have 2 workaways.
    We usually have one at a time as there isn't so much to do atm.

    The smaller room is downstairs, newly painted, new floorboards, comfortable single bed.

    Lots of gorgeous trees around

    There are organic natural shampoos & soaps etc provided in the bathroom upstairs for you to use.

    Natural laundry soap.

    No smoking- vapes are ok.

    If you can teach yoga, get me motivated to exercise more, make smoothies or teach me guitar/piano please apply!

    We have a piano, bunch of ukuleles, couple guitars, a mandolin and a merlin.

    Please be considerate with dirty laundry... make sure you arrive with clean laundry = its a resource we pay for
    We are happy for you to do it after you have been here working for a week.

    We are a quiet house and neighbourhood.
    Curfew is 10 pm weeknights and 11pm weekends as my dogs go absolutely crazy when someone returns at night... I don't want to upset the neighbours or my parents.
    The city is really far to be going out late at night. So if you can stay at a hostel, friends or bnb for the weekend would be preferable but not out of the question.

    If you want to go dancing I can take you locally in Cronulla.
