  • Description


    My husband, me and our two cats are living in a Mediterranean style house with a tropical garden by the ocean. We love the fact that we can hear the surf and walk down to the beach in three Minutes. Byron Bay is 6km away and we ride the bikes into town on a beautiful bike path. We enjoy planning little garden and renovation projects around our place. Cooking, reading, art projects, beach life, sharing time with friends are some of the things we enjoy.

    I am Swedish-German, John is British. However, you will mostly experience and share an Australian lifestyle by the beach as we have lived in Australia for thirty years. John is a retired 5-star chef (you could pick up some cooking lessons here :) ) I am teaching language, literacy and numeracy two days a week and am working on little art projects in my free time.

  • Accommodation


    You will have a private room in our house and you have excess to all other areas in the house. Just like a share accommodation situation. Work usually starts in the morning. After helping us, you can go to the beach, borrow a bike to enjoy Byron or hang around home. Breakfast and lunch we just do as we go. Dinner we prepare and have together (flexible). We eat predominantly vegetarian meals.
