After looking after an absolutely divine young couple for a day whilst our friends were away, we thought we would try and host some other travellers of our own!
We live on 8.5acres, adjoining 200 acres of Crown Land, 5mins from the major shopping centres and the largest growth corridor in Australia. The house is newly renovated, 3 bedroom, super modern, open plan style. We have anywhere between 3-7 riding horses (not really the quiet trail riding types), Jimmy Cricket - the Whippet (Dog) and plenty of wild life incl Wombats, Kookaburras and Kangaroos.
We are 30-40yo married couple (4 years) with a highly independent 3yo. We are not far from lovely sanctuary parks, train stations and general public transport.
My husband is a Veterinarian and I run a few businesses from home, a little entrepreneurial!. Our interests are photography, boats, travel, hiking, horses and new ventures. We both work hard and live fairly relaxed at home, nothing is high maintenance though always bits and pieces to do.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
We aren't after any slaves! We would just like to help some young travellers enjoy their stay in Australia. Plus an extra pair of hands if and when available would be much appreciated.
Gardening could involve - whipper snipper the grass, watering plants, pruning maybe even planting.
Babysitting - would be in very short spurts i.e. 30mins whilst I ride a horse.
Help in the house - maybe the odd vacuum?
Animal care - taking rugs on/off horses (generally 2 horses), helping with feeding. out
A moderate bedroom with Queen size bed, your own toilet, with large shared bathroom. We have a massive kitchen and large stone top benches, so knock yourself out if you like to cook! There is internet, computers, a large study, heating/cooling.
There are cafes, largest shopping centres in Australia i.e. Chadstone and Fountain Gate, Nationals Parks and Wildlife, amazing scenery, horses and we have a wealth of knowledge of what else to see whilst you are in Australia.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
