  • Description


    We are a family of 2 - myself and my 6 year old daughter. We live in southern Adelaide hills and have a spare room in our house that we'd love to open to travellers. We're located within 20 minutes of Adelaide, Glenelg (beaches) and McLaren Vale (wineries). There is a bus stop 2 minutes from our door and a train station nearby.

    We are a fun and active little family. My daughter loves to play outside, create and act out stories, dance to silly music and tell jokes that aren't as funny as she thinks they are. I'm currently working on an international arts festival. I have a police clearance and we have hosted many travellers already.

    We are happy to show you around the Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu Penisula and Barossa regions as well as Adelaide city and beaches. Most weekends we go out visiting friends or spending time at the beach, national park or seeing a festival. You will be considered as family and are welcome to join us on any of our excursions.

    We are seasoned travellers ourselves so are more than happy to help you plan your next adventure.

  • Help


    We are looking for someone to help with one to two afternoons of babysitting a week, plus an hour here and there when needed. At times I'm required to work on evening events as well. We're very flexible with times and days.

    There is no cooking required unless you want to share with us your favourite meals from home.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in the Adelaide Hills, a true home among the gum trees, we even have a koala that calls our back yard home. The area is known for its welcoming community and artistic flair. We are 20 minutes by car to Adelaide CBD. 15 minutes to beaches, national parks and wineries. We have a spare bicycle and helmet for you to use too.

    We have a bakery, pharmacy, butcher and takeaway at the end of our street and are 3km from the nearest major town with major supermarkets, a number of affordable gyms, cafes, bakeries and stores for most other things.

    On weekends we go to the farmers' markets and visit friends, both nearby and in the Fleurieu and Barossa regions. We like our volunteers to feel like part of the family and include them in all of our adventures and fun. We also like to learn about their life and culture too.
