  • Description


    I have two international sudents living with me and we are having a lovely time. There is room for one more.
    They study in the morning while I work and then we get together in the afternoon and potter in the garden, later we take turns cooking. The offer is to stay till the end of June, then we will see what we are able to do.
    We are 1 1/2 hours south of Sydney on the train line.

    I am a traveller and artist and have some projects at home that I need some help with. Girls or guys, or both. I'm busy but layed back and have a lovely house and room for you to stay. I'm happy with accomodation and food in exchange for 3 hours per day help. There will be some easy painting, general yard work and weeding. I have a large vegetable garden that I would like to extend oh... and a flower bed too. If we are up to it, I would like to move a fence (easy ) and transplant 2 small trees, create a new compost heap.Please understand that this is not a paid job, just somewhere nice to live for a little while.
    We will all need to spend a little bit of time everyday staying on top of hygene and we have to be mindfull of distancing.
    I love meeting travellers and have always been an aventurer.
    There is public transport where I am.
    If you are travelling in a van, there is plenty of room here for you to park.
    I have a beautiful garden and large vegetable garden. It's a peaceful home with lots of bush walks close by. I'm a Mum and have two beautiful boys who live in Queensland.

    I'm a traveller and a professional artist. There are 2 spare bedrooms which I would like to offer for those who cannot go home yet. We have to be sensible during this covid time.
