I'm Emma, I live in Thornton NSW with my partner Chad, son Samson (3) and our little girl Noa (1).
Both Chad and I have used the workaway website whilst travelling in Europe. We liked it so much we decided to become hosts.
Location.. we are approx 30 minutes from Newcastle which has some of Australia's best beaches with public transport available and the same distance from the hunter valley wineries with some of Australia's best wineries there isn't much public transport out there but we are more than happy to try and help you organise a wine tour.
Work.. We have a house that we have renovated most of the inside of but now we are doing the outside including gardens, retaining walls, roof, fences etc. Ideally a couple would be great so you could both work together or possibly one help Chad out and the other give me a hand with the kids, house work, laundry, cooking etc., . working 4-5 hours a day 5 days a week.
Accomodation.. You have the option of staying inside the house in your own room with double bed or you can stay in the yard in a fairly modern caravan (up to you to keep clean). Shared bathroom inside.
Both Chad and I are pretty easy going and really just after someone that is going to fit in like family, help at meal times with cleaning up. We don't expect you to be doing everything but would hopefully be sharing the duties equally.
No smokers please!
We look forward to hearing from you.
