We are a family of 2 women with 2 grown children. Our kids are aged 16 and 18 and we all enjoy having people come to stay.
Rachel works in the public service and Amy works coordinating a toy library in the inner city.
We don't eat meat and we like to cook healthy meals.
Our house is only about 8kms from the city centre and we are very close to public transport. The tram that runs past our house travels through fitzroy to the city.

Help around the house
Travelers will learn about how we live as a queer led family in the inner north of Melbourne.
They will gain insight into the everyday happenings of family life and may learn some things about chickens and gardens if they are so inclined.
They can learn about Melbourne’s art and cultural experiences from people who live here.
We have a bedroom and bathroom that is separate from the house in our back garden.
We sometimes need some help gardening and cleaning. We would not expect more than a few of hours a day help and you would be free to go off and explore Melbourne or relax here at home the rest of the time. We live near good cafes and are very close to the Merri Creek.
We need people who are self motivated and are not afraid of messy work, especially cleaning, gardening and painting. Please note, our kids are adults, don’t offer us childcare!
We can take one or two workaways.
We have a queen size bed and bedding that you can use.
We have wifi throughout the house.
We live in thornbury and are walking distance to preston and northcote. We are a short tram ride away from north fitzroy, fitzroy and the city.
