We are a couple in our 50s, who love to travel, hike and kayak. 8 years ago we moved to Gympie and built our home. We have a rather snobbish cat and an exuberant dog living with us as well as chickens and bees.We are now working on creating a semi- self sufficient garden on our property in Gympie. We are also constantly building additions to the house.
Chris is a teacher and Phil is a nurse so we really have very little time to maintain the garden all by ourselves.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Our home is nestled on an acre in the heart of historic Gympie which is approximately 45 minutes from the Sunshine coast beaches and Rainbow Beach. The town is surrounded by easily accessible natural beauty. Whilst staying with us you may use our kayaks to access the many waterways in our area.
You will be able to use all our home facilities which include pool, sauna, spa, fire pit, xbox, guitars, internet and board games. We will provide food for lunch and breakfast for you to prepare yourself and dinner will be eaten together. We eat a mainly vegetarian diet but also cook chicken and fish.
We are a couple who work full time and therefore you will need to help independently and respect our property. The tasks can be tedious, for example mulching, honey harvesting, weeding, building and cleaning, however we only ask for 4 hours work a day.
You will have your own bedroom in our home. We have 2 bedrooms with queen beds so we have space for 2 couples or up to 4 friends who don't mind sharing a bed. Bedding and towels will be provided.
