  • Description


    We have a big, beautiful house surrounded by nature, with amazing views of the water and mountains.
    The house is owned by myself and my niece.
    We are doing some small improvements and decorating the home and would like a hand with moving, painting and cleaning.
    I travel back and forth between Sydney for work. Whenever I’m not there, my niece will look after you.
    Our ideal workaway volunteer has a warm and friendly personality and is really keen to help us make our home even more beautiful.
    We are very generous hosts for guests with good intentions.

    Please mention in your message if you smoke. We will accept smokers who are very respectful. We are very clean living and avoid toxins. Please do not bring any red meat, drugs or alcohol into our home.
