Want to visit the beautiful Macedon Ranges, 1hour north-west of Melbourne? We live in the township of Macedon, within walking distance of the train station, grocery store, cafe and pub. We are happy to host singles for short term visits. Ideally, visitors would be able to take on daily household chores such as cooking the evening meal, doing the laundry, packing and unpacking the dishwasher, and completing cleaning duties such as sweeping, vacuuming, mopping and dusting. On occasions we need help with heavier indoor cleaning tasks, such as windows, cupboards, walls etc. Some tasks are outdoors and include gardening (pruning and weeding) and help with maintenance. We offer queen bed accommodation inside the house, with small lounge attached. The bathroom is shared. Attractions in the area include Honour Avenue, Hanging Rock, Mt Macedon, and the towns of Woodend and Gisborne. We have 12yr old twins, a cat, some chickens and some quail. We are both professionals and work during the week.
