  • Description


    Hi Travelers. My name is Chad. I'm a full-time builder with my own construction company and also a full-time dad to my two daughters aged 13 & 15, who are now currently home schooled. As you could imagine life is quite busy for me. We are a tight little family who enjoy exploring/laughing and relaxing.

  • Help


    What I am looking for here is helpers that are into gardening (SO MANY WEEDS I HAVE NO TIME TO SORT), General house keeping (vacuuming, cleaning windows, mopping floors etc), and cooking if you can as I think it nice to share the load in the kitchen and try other peoples cooking skills. Mya eldest daughter wants to be a chef so she is in the kitchen alot.
    Also if anyone is interested in Building....there is opportunity to come with me to the building site and earn money if you have a working holiday Visa.

    Depending on when someone decides to stay, I should have a little run about car ready for your use to get around while your not at home. But in the meantime there are two bicycles to use with helmets. I live near the beach, so if you love the ocean this is a great spot to visit. There are bars and restaurants also, markets on weekends and a museum that could give you all the insight on the area.
