  • Description


    Beautiful Mexican inspired Villa, 10 mins drive from Byron Bay and amazing beaches. We are a local family that have been slowly building our dream home for the last 10 years.
    We are specifically looking for someone handy with building and tools. (and ideally, a few muscles to move things about).
    Having helpers for the past 10 years on our property has helped us to create our home and make our dreams become reality. We have 2 children 7 and 11 years old who are fun, loving adventurous kids who love meeting new people. We enjoy meeting new people from different cultures and working together on different projects. We appreciate all the help we get building and maintaining our home and property.
    We would also like someone who is able to drive, pick the kids up from activities, and also look after the kids a couple of evenings per week.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have had the pleasure of hosting people from all over the world. We work together with our helpers and enjoy lots of fun times together, especially in the kitchen sharing recipes. Being so close to Byron Bay beaches is always a plus. Surfing, beautiful walks and nature and visiting lical attractions like Byron Bay lighthouse or whale watching.

    What else ...

    We love our life and our home. We would love to share it with you. We enjoy setting tasks and achieving our goals. We appreciate all the support and help we have received and hope that you will enjoy being here too. Sometimes we like time alone and others we like to share time together. We eat predominantly vegetarian, and healthy food.
    The house is approx 15kms from Byron Bay center. We often drive into town and can offer lifts where possible. However if you are happy to occupy yourself, hanging out in nature, read a book, chill get the idea.
