Hi there, we are both semi retired professionals, Robin a teacher and Linda a nurse. We have hosted students from all over the world for the last 10 years but Covid has slowed this down. However as the world opens up we are working hard updating our home and garden and need some practical help, language practice and fun company.

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
You will enjoy being part of our family and have the opportunity to explore the beautiful Sunshine Coast. You will have plenty of time to surf, swim, hike, climb mountains, drink coffee, cycle or just chill in the garden. There is off road parking or you can catch the bus to the beach/town from a nearby stop.
Oil the outside deck, help with painting and cleaning, some heavy gardening and lots more if you're really handy!
