    Description

    Hi We are Rachel and Ulan. We are both artists that live on a property in Bega - half way between Sydney and Melbourne, Australia. We have lived here for 16 years and over that time have created a beautiful home and garden.
    Our 2 children Indigo and Taj are 18 and 16 and come and go from our home.
    We have a number of animals including 2 dogs , chickens and some sheep.
    We have built a natural swimming pool and have a large vegetable garden and many orchard trees.
    Its good to give us advance warning of a visit so we can organise a project to suit your skills.

    One of our other great joys is preparing dinner with a glass of wine.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We offer a beautiful artists retreat for travellers to come and rejuvenate. We have done a lot of travel ourselves and love the idea of opening our home to others.
    We are happy for people to be independent but also happy to include you in any of our gatherings and parties with friends.

    There is always different jobs to do depending on the projects we are doing. We are happy to be flexible with your interests and skills. Jobs would include weeding/ gardening work, cleaning, plant propagation picking and preserving fruit.
    Happy to set you up with a job but needs to be an independent worker as we will be doing our art work.
    Ideally we would like people to stay for 1-2 weeks

    We offer a bedroom inside our home. We also have a very large garden with lots of private areas to explore. In the summer months if you prefer we can set up an outside area / tent .
    We are happy to cook and eat dinner over a glass of wine at sunset. We will provide the food but ask people to make their own breakfast and lunch to suit their own eating habits.

    What else ...

    We are situated almost half way between Sydney and Melbourne and only 3 hours from Canberra.
    We are surrounded by beautiful National parks and pristine beaches.
    There is great surfing, fishing and snorkelling spots.
    As we are only 5 minutes to town so we can drop you into town where there are shops, library, art gallery and access to buses.
