    Description

    22km FROM GERALDTON - We are located in the picturesque Chapman Valley situated approx 22 km North East from the Geraldton town centre or 436km from Perth and close to the coast.
    The closest shops are 15km from our house. There are lots of nice day trips, beaches and places to explore in our region (150km to Kalbarri).
    We have a wonderful climate here and amazing views.
    Ideally, we would like a minimum of a 3 day stay with us, longer if we mutually agree.
    Our property is set on 120 acres, we have a large house, so you will have your own space, we have small refreshing pool that you can use and we have a friendly dog and merino sheep.
    There is no public transport available to and from our property.
    There is always something to do, but not the same each day.
    We ideally need help around the property, depending on the time of the year, help with some projects in the gardens, attending garden beds, cleaning windows, mowing of lawns, painting & walking our dog and helping in the workshop.
    It is essential for your own safety that you understand English and speak English and are willing and able to follow instructions and to carry them out to the best of your ability.
    We relish people who are reliable, self-motivated, enthusiastic and have a good sense of humour :)
    We don't ask anything of helpers that we wouldn't be prepared to do ourselves.
    SORRY, WE CANNOT SIGN OFF ON 2nd YEAR VISAS as our property does not qualify for this.
