  • Description


    I live on a beautiful acreage in Montville in the sunshine coast hinterland. I have a small self contained shack (a single room with outside kitchen and bathroom) which is private from the house, I am looking for someone who wants to live independently (self catering and own car etc), who is willing to help with gardening, general maintenance, building work or chores.

    I have two young children aged 6 and 10. We are an active and creative outdoorsy family.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    At our place you will experience an escape from the frenzied modern pace of life, and a unique way of life. (while still being a stones throw from everything on the Sunshine Coast) We do not have television and nature is our playground. We love to swim in nearby waterholes and waterfalls, have picnics, do art, make music and enjoy our lovely friends. Our property has so much wildlife - wallabies, birds, bandicoots, butterflies. When people visit our property they feel like they are in a little oasis of calm and beauty.
    My children attend a tiny local school, where we meet and make music after school, picnic with other families, and generally enjoy our amazing local community.
