Hi, we are working on restoring our Queenslander styled home. We've been doing a lot of painting and gardening but would like some help with the finishing touches on a few projects and basic house maintenance. We would mainly like assistance with gardening, cooking and painting.
My family consists of myself, Fiona, my husband who works interstate, my two daughters who are 17 & 19 years old and are currently studying away from Cairns but who visit frequently and finally our little dog Lucky, who is energetic and is guaranteed to be your best friend!
We have traveled widely in Australia and lived in many locations. Meeting other people with different stories, ideas and backgrounds is something we enjoy.
We are situated only a 20 minute walk to Cairns City and have busses that go to the city and out to the beaches of Cairns only 5 minute walk away. We have bikes available for you to borrow as well, and a pool to relax and swim in when you've got down time.
On your time off you may like to walk to the botanic gardens (only 10-15 mins away), venture into the city, explore the Great Barrier Reef or catch a bus to explore Cairns wonderful Northern Beaches. You're also welcome to stay here and enjoy a day by the pool. :)
