  • Description


    I have been operating part of my home as an rental for 9 years now. I have a super excitable, friendly dog and super friendly cat. I live on 1/2 acre with a creek running thru my property. I could do with some help in my garden and around the house. I love to cook, so we can share some time in the kitchen as well. Also must be 2 people or more. Max 4. Not afraid to work in large garden! 4 hours work per day (Mon-Fri) for accommodation , breakfast, lunch and hot cooked evening meal, (no work on Saturday or Sundays, no food (unless a short stay))_. Can discuss.
    I've hosted several backpackers over the years, happy to forward details, if you require some references.

    Living in amongst the Australian Bush in the Blue Mountains, surrounded by Australian bird life, yet close to the town centre. A comfortable, relaxed home where we can share stories and adventures. I'm a 15 minute walk into town centre, or I'm happy to drive you up and to beginning of walking trails.

    I run a small BnB in Katoomba on 1/2 acre, Blue Mountains. Only 1.5 hour drive from Sydney., or 2 hour train journey. I need help in my landscaped garden: lots of weeding, brush cutting, general garden maintenance and perhaps a little help inside. Any handymen/women would be great benefit to me. Availability depends on my bnb bookings.

    Can possibly accept pets

    Must discuss beforehand, as I have a dog and cat. My dog is fine, and I can confine my cat to my bedroom. But she must go outside to the garden for her toileting.
