We offer a private fully renovated bedroom and bathroom suitable for a single or couple for up to one week in exchange 3 hours per person per night's stay if less than one week or, (4 hours x 5 days, with 2 days off for one week) PLUS sharing in cooking dinners and keeping the kitchen clean and tidy after meals. In addition we ask that you clean your room and bathroom ready for the next Workaway guest.
We offer a fully stocked fridge and pantry, and we love to learn new ways to cook if that's something you're happy to share. If you prefer to eat out there are many local cafe's and restaurants you can walk to from here.
Our home is a 60's beach house that we renovated in 2017. We are a family of four, and our house is within walking distance to Burleigh Heads Beach, Burleigh Head National Park, Tallebudgera Creek and James Street shopping village. There are many restaurants, bars, food and coffee shops within a 2 minute walk down the hill, including a Woolworths, Foodworks, and Organic/ Whole Foods Juice Bars etc. Our property is in a secluded pocket, bordered on two sides by a conservation park, home to much birdlife including lorikeets and kookaburras, and if you're lucky you may get to see a koala. Wake up to birdsong and enjoy being part of the bush whilst also being so close to the beach.
We look forward to a positive exchange of energy with you!
