  • Description

    Description

    My little humble place is in it's early stages of becoming a little retreat and clinic for holistic/herbal treatments including Ayurvedic medicine/ Yoga and a few other modalities. There is yet a lot to be built and planted so some good helping hands and creativity is welcome! My few animals would enjoy company while I'm away for work (carpentry) on most weekdays and current tasks range from animal care, gardening and household. Beautiful east coast beaches are 15-20 minutes away for surfing, fishing or just chillin. There is also some nice hiking treks and bush walks nearby so if you have a car that would help making the most of your spare time! Any musical skills or interests are always welcome :)
