    Our region offers a variety of good activities from beaches, bush walks , horse riding etc. A vehicle and or bikes would be supplied to suitable person so you can explore the local region during time off. The property has a well established garden and a relaxing atmosphere. A suitable person would very much become part of our family and included in our activities as much as possible. Both partners work so would expect the house duties and child care aspects all to be in order when we get home n the evenings.
