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.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
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.
We love peeps who enjoy gardening and getting involved in our projects around the house. This could be painting, helping with renovation etc. we also have general cleaning jobs inside. Car washing, sweeping paths, weeding the gardens etc.
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.
Our little Suffolk Park community is a laid back, surfing community. Shops, bakery, post office, pub, cafes are in 5 minutes walking distance. Byron Bay 6km (we have bikes). Beautiful Tallows Beach 3 minutes walk from our house. Ideal for surfing beach walking or sun-baking. Broken Head National Park, a Tee Tree Lake and great walks all around the corner.
