  • Description

    Description

    I am a retired single male, ex-public servant living on a small property at Mooloolah Valley Queensland (State of Australia) I am open to single travellers male/female as I can only cater for one traveller at a time. You will have your own bedroom with a separate toilet and bathroom. I'm not alternative but open to all aspects of the lifestyle.

    I am within walking distance to the rail line north or south. A vehicle would be handy but not essential. If required I can pick you up at the Mooloolah Rail station. (make sure to get a train that travels to Nambour)
    I am active however I need help with house and yard maintenance and general help.
    I have a miniature fox terrier (Paris) friendly to adults not so to small children and other pets. I do not totally take responsibility for her behaviour as she is a rehomed dog. But her personality makes up for it. My Vet says she is a girl with attitude I like that.

    I regularly travel to Brisbane (about 1hr.20min)to visit family (two daughters) and check on the boat whilst it's moored in the Brisbane River

    I have an 11 metre motor cruiser which is best operated with two people so there is the opportunity to get some boating and fishing experience and live onboard for a few days. The boat is normally moored in the Brisbane River. (one of the pictures shows) living onboard for a few days (whilst exploring Brissie is a possibility.

    If you would like to experience a semi-rural lifestyle with ready access to other places of interest plus if you are into boating then this opportunity may suit. If you get seasick easily please tell me so I can modify the boat trip to suit. Rather than having to abort a trip after having organised a three-day + passage.


    Please note I am not prepared to accept travellers who smoke or only want a short stay. (min 2 wks)

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Own room with Separate toilet and bathroom. I'm lucky to be connected to town water so there are no issues with restricting water useage. Many of the residences in the area rely on rain water tanks. . Wi fi not provided by host however internet can be connected through a standard Australian phone plan. No landline connected. Mobile phone reception requires going outside to get reception or make a call. No big deal in this climate. The mosies can be a problem at times. I have no restrictions with regard to diet. Open to others personal preferences. May be I can learn something.
