    Description

    Hi everyone
    we are Yane, Peter and Lorena , living on and maintaining four houses on a bush property in the foothills of the Blue Mountains . We enjoy sharing our life with travellers, showing them the Bluey's (Blue Mountains) We can always do with some help in the garden, landscaping, building etc in and around the houses to keep them up and running. We have many interests including gardening, music, bushwalking, canyoning, yoga, motor bikes and many more.
    Yane is Danish/Australian, Peter has Danish/Canadian background and Lorena is German/ Argentinian. Some times Lorenas children stay with us, which is good fun. We enjoy working on and planning different projects that arise here. Peter's mum Yane lives in a house nearby and always loves a helping hand in the garden or cleaning some windows. She makes a great cup of tea :) we also have some chickens, hope to have some more soon.
    We do prefer people who are over the age of 25, can speak and understand English relatively well and also with some previous skill in building or maintenance work.
    If you think you might fit in, please send us a message.
    Hope to see you soon :)
    Cheers

    Pete, Lorena & Yane
