    Description

    If you are looking for down time from travelling and need to find your feet for a while, Sandy Beach is the perfect place to do it. We are a fun loving, easygoing, family that live beachfront in quiet seaside town on the East Coast of Australia. Our Family is made up of Karina and Dave (mum and dad) and kids Lila 9 and Olive 5. We own and run the only shop/cafe in the small town so are busy working and need a little help around the house, with the kids and in the garden. The shop is directly opposite the beautiful Sandy Beach about 15 minutes north of Coffs Harbour in New South Wales. Our home is on a small acreage about 300m down the road. We would love to have someone join our family and experience this amazing Coastal life style. Tasks include getting the kids ready for school and onto the bus, general cleaning of house and some washing, -we are also preparing the organic gardens for spring crops so planting of seeds and seedlings and preparing garden beds. There is also the option to live at the shop, for the right person, to help with general maintenance / painting and general duties around the place.
    If you love the ocean, surfing, snorkeling, exploring coastal beaches or fishing, Going for walks, watching the sunrise or gardening then this is the perfect place to land and call home for a little while. Happy to except a couple if they are both willing to help out and can work independently.
