  • Description


    Emerald Beach is a gem of NSW North Coast. Beautiful beaches, whales out sea and kangaroos in the front yard. It's the iconic image of Australia.

    The house is within 300m of the beach and close to seval headlands, sandy beaches, national parks and marine reserves. The area is famous for surfing, diving and general beach style living.

    I live with my beautiful German Shorthaired Pointer, Mr Keith, who is asleep on his own lounge as I type.

    I'm working full time, plus building a blog detailing my travels that form a Spatial Science PhD undertaking. I also support my parents on their farm and am starting my own Surveying consultancy... I'm time poor. Any help would be appreciated. Please read below for specs,

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Well I'm sure I could help teach something of the world if you want, I'm a serial polymath autodidact who is captivated by ancient mysteries who travels for the discovery of megalithic sites that predate known civilisations. It's a great hobby.
    But really the value of this place isn't what I can offer, Emerald Beach is a wonderful, quiet, relaxing place where you can learn to surf or just chill. Coffs harbour is 10 minutes South if you want to be in the busyness, while the State forest is 10 minutes West if you want to run forest tracks in the wild. It has it all.

  • Accommodation


    It's a large bedroom with own bathroom (bathroom i sold and needs a reno sorry), new kitchen put in a month ago.
    The room only has an air mattress at the moment, so first job will be pick out a new queen bed and linen etc, and get started on making it beautiful.
    The bedroom is very quiet and cool in summer.

    Depending on how much you want to work/what food you eat , I'm sure we can come up with something to best suit us both. (Job 2 is buy a bbq)
