  • Description


    Hi, my name is Dave. I traveled around Europe and the Middle East for 5 years in my twenties. More recently I've visited a bit of Asia and a lot of Australia. For the last couple of years, I travel away for work in blocks and then return home for periods between jobs to work on my house and gardens. Due to the nature of my work I will not know whether I can accept a booking request for greater than four weeks in advance.

    I'm offering accommodation and all meals while I am at home working on my house and garden projects.

    I currently have one older male housemate. Besides the house activities, I'm into rock climbing, yoga, guitar, circus, festivals and camping.

    I am registered to be able rescue and care for injured native wildlife during their rehabilitation so you may have the opportunity to take part in this process.
    It is no problem for me to provide vegetarian food. Catering for vegans would not be much more of a stretch as I already avoid dairy. I don't however provide expensive vegan diet supplements or "superfoods".
