  • Description


    We live on a fantastic little farm, with sheep, horses, chickens, cats and a dog, we have a beautiful swiming pool and a spa, stunning rural environment and only 5 minutes to Albany and 25 minutes to town. If you are looking for a break away to have some quiet time or the city is not your thing then we have the place for you. We have 3 children aged 8,10 and 13. We would like some one to help us with the housekeeping, clothes, washing cleaning and odd jobs. We need you for 5 hours a day.(5 days a week) English must be good. We have a lovely double room for you and a bathroom you would share.
    We are open to a short stay of 4 weeks or longer.  English must be good.  If you are a couple we would be open to this but the accomodation would be a tent in the paddock and we would require extra work around the properety from your better half !  If you have your own van and would like to park here and do the required work we would be happy to discuss.  But only 1 person if it is live in the house. food and board included. Payment is only for one person the 2nd would be working for board and food(No Smokers). We have had plenty of happy backpackers come and stay.
