  • Description


    Hi there..

    Come stay in a large house in a beautiful, leafy, quiet area near beautifully beach Cronulla ( 5 min drive = 20 min walk)

    It's 50/45 mins by train to Sydney centre. 40 mins to airport by train.

    We have a salt water pool but it is currently being painted! Will be ready in 2 weeks.. about dec 16th- we are close to beaches though!! Beautiful ones.

    We have a have 2 dogs, 2 free range rabbits ( one is a new young bunny that is adjusting to life here) and 2 cats

    I have an organic online shop with eco travel tips in the free resource section.

    My father is retired Radiologist and my mother was a primary teacher from Boston.

    We lived in Saudi Arabia from 79-84 (and before that the USA) and have been in Sydney since.

    We have wild possums -birds: Cockatoos, Kookaburras and Rainbow Lorikeets.

    I like to be economical with when drive so if we can coordinate I can drop you off at a train if you want to go into the city or elsewhere.

    My folks usually go out once a day or every other day to the shops so they can drop you at the train station too.
    Or you can walk or catch buses/trains/ or Ubers around.

    National parks nearby, beaches, great cafes.

    There is also a huge shopping mall nearby with lots of great places to eat and a great movie theatres.

    We have solar panels, worm farm for composting, 4 rain water tanks and we grow a few herbs.

  • Help


    Decluttering!! Selling our things on gumtree and FB. I have recently had an operation so can't do much.. my mom and dad are old..we need help with everything from cleaning to decluttering. Indoor and outdoor,

    Renovations, building and then painting will be needed. We will have professionals in too probably but if you could come help start.

    I often need help to clean my shop space which is in the garage. I keep my eco products in there. Help around the house too.. cleaning and cooking. Lots of outdoor sweeping.

    Currently we need help with cooking and cleaning up after.

    If you like to eat well and help cook or cook a meal yourself, of course we provide the food.

    Easy tasks:

    2 Cats - 2 puppies (7-8 months old) 4 bunnies- need to be feed, bowls need to be cleaned
    Helping to train the puppies, walk them, to have clean water every day and patted.

    I can't walk them until I am fully recovered in about 6 more weeks.

    I've done workaway before and know how important it is to be able to see the area and have time off...because you are on holiday but also to do the things to keep the household happy... communication is key.. if you want to sleep in or have a nap... let us know... we can work around what works for your lifestyle.

    Workaway is better if its not like a job... I think it is better if it is flexible and people get enough rest but also do enough work to help out so we all feel happy.

    I look forward to meeting you!
