    House cleaning and possibility some gardening and pet care. We have 2 small dogs that love nothing more than to be spoilt with attention in return that will entertain with love and laughter. 2 cats, African fish, a turtle and an eastern dragon. Can you tell we love animals? All our pets love people. Someone with a good sense of organising would be Great!. Will not accept volunteers under the age of 25 . No volunteers who are looking for accomodation and wanting to job search but that can be discussed for long term stay. We would also prefer to host those who wish longer term stays. We have had many wonderful experiences and enjoy different cultures. I am a chef and have enjoyed learning different cuisines from our past workawayers.

    We have a fully furnished bedroom with a king single bed, and access to other parts of the house.There is also a relaxing court yard almost a zen feeling when you sit out there with lots of greenery and a small pond and the sound of the waterfall is so tranquil. A small turtle who plays with the fish will come out to say Hi. Internet is unlimited which your welcome to. Our house is always fully stocked with food, mostly fresh produce.

    What else ...

    We live in a suburb but the best part of the multicultural suburb. There are 5 shopping malls or centres surrounding us. Everything is very close.
    There is a bus stop right outside and across from the house. Train station is a 5 minute walk. It takes about 20-35 minutes to get to our major city melbourne by train. This depends on the time frame.
    Melbourne is a beautiful city with so much to do, it is the arts capital, winner of the best liveable city again in 2016 and our country side there is so much to see from small rain forests in dandenong ranges to beautiful beaches and mountains. We have a lot of parks that are great to explore all can be reached by train.
    Once again will not accept workawayers under 25 years of age and those who are searching for employment or full time studying while staying with us, sorry we tried it a few times and it did not work . Also dietary although I prefer a vegetarian diet the others in the house eat meat . I work in an industry that I have to provide different diets so unless I at work I do not wish to accommodate those who are on other dietary needs. We do not eat pork or pork products at all and try to lean More towards kosher
