Cathy and myself are energetic early 60s couple that live on a small 5000sqm fruit orchard and gardening block here in the whitsundays. Although we are semi retired we find we dont have enough hours in the day to keep up with all our gardening and light maintenance needs. I am a retired builder and Cathy is a Art dealer and we have our own art gallery in our magnificent home that i built, she represents top emerging artists from all over Australia, We also do Airbnb accommodation from our home and meet people from all over the world and call our home the Airlie Arthouse. We are also the founders and organizers of the inaugural 2020 Whitsundays Arts Festival coming to the Airlie Beach foreshore, so as you can see we sometimes need some help in our busy lives. We have a separate fully self contained lined shed with all amenities for your accommodation so you can come and go as you please. There is also an inground pool for your use.
Please Note, this is not a paid position, Accommodation and meals provided in exchange for your labour thanks.
