  • Description

    Description

    We are David and Asha, father and daughter and we live in an old but comfortable home about 5km from Perth in suburban Mt Hawthorn. I have been blessed to meet some truly wonderful people through this fantastic website, had awesome experiences and made good friends, but I have not had any guests since the virus hit. But I am looking to take in guests again from about May or June.

    I would like to swap board for housework and yard work, perhaps some light home maintenance.

    We have wifi, air conditioning, a swimming pool, Netflix and a pool table. We do not have a dishwasher or a clothes dryer. We are a queer-friendly household.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I have lived in Perth all my life and will gladly give you the best of my local knowledge. My daughters are Aboriginal through their mother. I am white 6th generation Australian through my Mum and a blend of southern Asian and northern European through my Dad. I love the cultural exchange that happens with workawayers. My dog comes from a rescue shelter and has trust and commitment issues. She thrives on meeting new people who are willing to love her.

    I love meeting new people, finding good, warm, open conversation with interesting thinkers and broad-minded people. If you like to sit around in the evening with a drink or a cup of tea, we are already friends. If you are a native French speaker please insist on speaking some French with me every day.

    We are both vaccinated and I will ask you to show me your vaccination certificate before you get here.

    I offer my guests two weeks' stay. We can extend that depending on my work commitments and how well things are going.

    We live in a not-too-big 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom house in a safe neighbourhood, close to the city. There is public transport nearby and excellent bike paths into the city and to surrounding parklands. I have bikes you can borrow.

    You will have your own bedroom, if you are a couple you will share that bedroom and bed. We have wifi, air-conditioning, a swimming pool and Netflix.

    I will make sure there is plenty of what you like to eat.

    This is a great neighbourhood. Plenty of cafes, restaurants, pubs and clubs within a km or two. Lots of guests have found part time work nearby. There are wildlife reserves and parks nearby and a bike path down the road. We are a short bike ride from Perth city.
