I'm Maria Carme, originally from Barcelona and with a background on Archaeology and Geographical Information Systems. After backpacking around the world for almost two years, I have settled in Kangaroo Island, where I work part time in a café and I try to write fiction based on my travels.
I love interacting with different cultures, and I have been a workawayer and helper myself, doing some gardening in New Zealand, and helping with the daily house shores of a lovely family in Adelaide.
I live on my own in a lovely cottage in Penneshaw, with a view over paddocks and the see, a bit up hill, but only 15/20 minutes walking to the beach and to the town centre.
I need help at the moment because I had an accident and I have a limited use of one of my hands until I recover. Your job would mainly consist in doing the dishes and some cooking as well as in basic cleaning and gardening.
Help in the house
Hope you will enjoy the island and maybe we can exchange interesting experieces about our travels /cultures.
One person for one week to one month to help with:
3 hours a day, 5 days a week.
You will be in a private room with twin beds. You won't need to share it.
As you work only 3 h per day, we share food costs or you can buy your own if you prefer it.
The area has full internet coverage with Telstra and some coverage with Optus.
During your free time, in Penneshaw itself, you can enjoy the beach and beautiful hikes with plenty of wild live. It is very common to spot Kangaroos, wallabies, pelicans, dolphins, seals, and, if you look for them, peguins. Kangaroo Island is full of beautiful landscapes to explore!
