  • Description


    We are a family of 4, with two children living in beautiful Brisbane, Australia
    Boy -Valera is 5y old
    Girl - Anna is 2y old
    And one 7 yr old Great Dane and 8 chickens!!

    We are a multinational family, from Canada and Russia living in beautiful Australia!!! Our kids are well behaved and go to Montessori daycare.
    We live in semi rural area on 2.5 acres, 30mins drive from Brisbane CBD. There is forest all around us, birds of all kinds, and other wildlife such as wallabies, kangaroos and possums.
    We have a pool, wood fired sauna, dog and chickens. We have camp fires as often as we can ( just not during fire bans) Our garden is ever growing and at the moment we have numerous banana trees, blueberry bushes, strawberries, raspberries, lemon tree, paw paw trees, and other garden veggies. We believe in zero waste lifestyle, permaculture and love learning about new cultures and lifestyles... we also love good food..... so .... can you cook?

    We are looking for a live in Workawayer. You would have your own room in the 3 bedroom house. Aircon, Tv, Netflix and Wifi. The shower and toilet rooms are shared. We are looking for 24h of help each week, but you would have 3/4 days free to do what you’d like. You would have access to a car which you can use to go explore the area. We love travelling to nearby attractions and showing our guests the secret spots! 4 wheel driving, spending days on the beach, and discovering new waking trails are our favourite activities on the weekends.
