    Hi Travellers. My name is Chad. I'm a full-time builder and also a full-time dad to my two daughters aged 10&12. As you could imagine life is quite busy for me. We also have two cats at out residence. I may have some projects that you could help out on down the track as my brother and I are going to experiment with eco-building in 2019.

    What I am looking for here is mainly babysitters first off. My plan for next year if possible is to have a list of travellers that would like to stay with us in 2019 for as long as you wish who can pretty much look after my girls when they get home from school during the year. Their normal time to arrive home is 3pm in the afternoon, and I usually finish work at 5pm. So if your up for caring for two awesome girls in the afternoon and help out around the house, then I'd love to hear from you. Regards Chad

  • Accommodation


    I can accommodate two travellers at a time and unfortunately I can only offer the stay to females. This is due to I do not really want strange men around my daughters. Two single beds are on offer with a shared bathroom.
    In regards to food, Another volunteering site ask for 4 hours help per day in exchange for a bed and food. I'm happy for it to be like this.

    What else ...

    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.
