  • Description

    Description

    We are currently renovating our house and could use help painting, cleaning, moving furniture, garden tidy etc. We can offer a safe, comfortable place to stay for a month or more for the right enthusiastic helpful person/couple.

    We are a loud, fun and just a little bit messy family of 5 (mum, dad, + a 16 year old, 13 year and 6 year old). We love our large home in the Blue mountains and happy to share our guest room with talented travellers. There are a lot of creative projects we have around the house inside and out, and if you can help out in between your travels - what a great partnership. We do have 3 cats, and a bunny (they add to the fun & messy part).
