    About us:
    We are a family of 4 with Sammy, a young Border Collie, who recently moved into their newly built home which still requires a little work here and there.

    We live in a quiet suburb on the beautiful Northern Beaches. The next beach is 5 min car drive away, the next surf beach, famous Manly Beach, a 10 min ride. The next bus stop is just 50m away with frequent buses taking you right into the city. For travellers with a car there is plenty of off-street parking in our street.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are an Australian-German family talking lots of “Denglish” around the house. :) We provide a space in a beautiful and culturally diverse home, living in an area where other people spend their holiday.

    I’m an environmental educator and if you are into nature I can point you to the most beautiful bush walks and landmarks in the area. I also follow a mostly plant-based diet, so fellow vegetarians and vegans can easily be accomodated (and meat eaters too ;)

    (There will be some gardening/landscaping, refurbishing furniture (sanding and painting), rendering/painting of a wall and some other maintenance around the house.

    If you happen to know a bit about dog training that would also be a big plus! :))

    So far stays are limited to 1 week.
