  • Description


    Hi All you beautiful people!!

    I´m looking for someone with building, carpentry, plumbing background/experience to do some small projects around my house and garden.
    If you are hands on, motivated I will provide you with all meals, a beautiful outdoor open area under the house, wifi, music while working and a nice athmosphere:) .
    In return I expect 4 to 5 hours work per day, weekend is off.
    If this is not you and you are just looking for a free place to stay in Cairns,please don´t reply. I will only respond if you did read my profile, please write the word "Aniki" in you response:)))
    Many thanks and I hope to meet you here soon:)))

    The place is a beautifull Queenslander style house (a timber building on stilts), located fairly central in Cairns. There is myself, Aniki the cat and two friends living with me. I a 47 years old female, german born, australian by choice:))
    The place is very open and tropical with lots of atmosphere and a lush garden.
    I love to enjoy an easygoing lifestyle, listening to music, having friends around...but that also depends a little on my work schedule, I do work as a tour guide around the area.

    This place is ideal for anyone who likes to explore Cairns, the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforest on the doorstep. It's only a short distance to the center of Cairns. a bus stop is around the corner. Also of course I will show you around and you will get to meet my friends and are very welcome to join me on social occasions.
    I look forward to meet you :))
