  • Description


    Hello - we are a happily married couple - James & Becs - both 35yrs old, and have a gorgeous 18month old son - Lenny - my husband is an Off grid Solar specialist and I am an Osteopath - we are both very down to earth, happy people, passionate about the environment and ideally looking for a couple that would like to stay onsite and help us during our home renovation.
    We live on a 3acres block just a stones throw from Bells Beach - it is an idyllic location - with a dam, wild kangaroos, ducks and echidnas.

  • Help


    We are doing a big renovation to improve our out door living/decking area and would love some help removing bricks and some basic labouring to assist the carpenters, maybe some painting etc.
    And also some child care for our gorgeous 18month old boy Lenny at times. We live on an awesome 3 acres block 1min drive from BELLS BEACH - so lots of surfing & bushwalking & chilling out when not working.

    As the renovation is inside the house - the accom would be a beautiful new Bell canopy tent in amongst the Ironbark trees with access to the kitchen, bathroom/shower inside. There would be power to the tent and TV and internet and even Netflix!
