  • Description


    Update: the room is free from mid-March.

    I am a busy guy starting a new job and am looking for some help with the house. I am a businessperson and environmentalist. I go to the gym each day, play golf and walk my dog daily.

    I love Bellingen because of it’s tranquility, nature and people and proximity to the beach and World Heritage Listed National Parks. Bellingen is halfway between Sydney and Brisbane. It is 15 minutes south and then 15 minutes inland from Coffs Harbour. It is 20 minutes to empty beaches and 30 minutes to World Heritage Listed National Parks. The town has about 3,000 cool people. It is an old hippy village which has a buzzy social scene with food, music, art and community activities. It is a popular spot for backpackers.

    The house is a two storey wooden house. It is made of local timber and recycled materials. It has a large deck over-looking the Great Dividing Range. It has a large open kitchen and it has plenty of places to relax in private.

    I am not here a great deal as I have started a new job. I am expecting around ten hours of tasks a week. I need someone to clean the house and car, attend to the garden, do the laundry and keep an eye on the dog. The dog also needs a walk for an hour a day (not included in the ten hours of work).

    I am providing a large private room with a king size double bed, air-conditioning and a mid-size TV set with Netflix and Amazon Prime. We share the lounge, dining, bathroom, laundry, toilet, outdoor area and home theatre. I can also pick you up and drop you off from/at Coffs Harbour bus station, train station or airport.
