  • Description


    Hi! We're a family of blended proportions! We live 4km to Adelaide CBD (you can walk home in 30mins or so) and have a great vibe to our living space. We've got a beautiful house, with loads of character. It's a 4bdrm 1880's house with a modern extension. And lots of green spaces in the backyard. We live next to all public transport options, bus tram train. Also we like to loan out our bicycles to our workaway helpers, which makes it easy to get around if you want to save on costs. We live near Goodwood road, which has all sorts of coffee shops, desert bars, plant based restaurant, cafes and a cinema. Other attractive local things are the outdoor swimming pool (open until May) the library and community centre. The showgrounds (at the end of our street, seriously) with the farmers market on weekends and a few other gems
    I'm a vegan and cook delicious vegan food and would love to share this with you.
    We've got a great open living space and would invite you to be part of our family. We speak German and English.
    We've got a young one, and preschooler. And half the time we've got a bunch of other kids staying here too! It certainly gets busy, but it's never boring. We love playing video games, board games or imagination games, so there is always something to join in on.
    We've got a piano that doesn't get much love anymore and all the mod cons on a modern house.
    We would love if you could join in on our family day to day life. That looks like playing with the kids, helping clean up from dinner, and pitching in with the housework. Some other jobs may look like cleaning, gardening, dusting, cobweb removal, painting of jobs. We like to negotiate with the individual but we feel it's a good exchange if we provide all your meals, and you give us 3-5hours of help 5 days a week.
    We are open to most exchanges, but prefer longer stays of over 1-2 weeks. We could possibly fit a couple or two friends, just ask. We're friendly and don't bite. 🤣
    We are very welcoming of people with their own living spaces and just need a base!
