  • Description


    Hello, I am a single working mother of 1 boy aged 9.
    We have a lovely family home only 10 mins walk from the closest beachfront (and coastal walk), 20 min bus from Kingston and 45 min bus from central Hobart.

    You would have your own private bedroom. And shared access to kitchen, bathroom and lounge room spaces.
    I have a backyard with enough space to sit and relax, whilst watching the birds fly in and eat from our feeders.

    I am looking for non smokers happy to help around the house and gardens in exchange for a place to stay. I cook vegetarian meals but can cater to most diets. We have free WiFi and Netflix you can use :)

    I have a cat and a dog. Both animals are inside/outside animals and bathed weekly. Our dog Morris is small/medium sized terrier cross and wonderful with kids and loves people. Looking ideally for someone who would like to stay 2 weeks or more, allowing you to settle in and get into the swing of how things work around here.
    #we now also have 2 guinea pigs in a hutch outside the back door.
