    My name is Miranda and I am looking for single/couple of hardworking, fun and exciting individuals who are willing to do a homestay here in Yass (2.5 hours from Sydney, 45 minutes from Canberra and 6 hours from Melbourne).

    Here’s a little about myself – I live and take care of my father and the house, while studying and working fulltime. There are 2 cats and 2 dogs that also live here (they think they are humans). We are friendly, outgoing going people that have an interest in many things. We both work fulltime so we would love for someone to help us with maintaining the house, yard and whatever else may be needed at the time. I am also looking at setting up an organic vegetable garden.

    We want to give you the opportunity to learn about an Australian working family and give you a cultural experience of what its like as an Australian family that is lives semi-rural area. You will be treated like family with respect, trust and privacy– in return we ask that you do the same. A MINIMUM stay of 1 week is required so that we can learn from you about your way of life and culture.
