Welcome to Karinya, means 'peaceful home'.
My home is in Wentworth Falls, in the Blue Mountains on the edge of the national park with trees, birds and uninterrupted view. Only 20 minutes walk to small shopping centre and train station, 2 hours train ride from Sydney CBD. The Blue Mountains is a beautiful area with lots of walks, things to do and places to eat.
I have large garden and maintenance work that I would like to have help with.
I live here with my dog, Peppa and cat, Ebonee.
Help around the house
Enjoy staying in a home in a lovely setting which is close to cafes, bush walks. I am very relaxed and friendly, I love to travel and meet people. At the moment I am trying to improve my Spanish and German language skills (but it is not essential that you speak these languages). Also my pets love visitors.
Stay could include pet sitting for my furry family - Peppa (dog - Labrador/kelpie) and Ebonee (cat - Burmese) while I go away. They are great company and Peppa loves to have a walk 30-45-minutes each day, preferably in the morning as that is her routine.
Help with spring cleaning house, cleaning windows and car and maybe some painting.
Work outside is working in the garden - removing /trimming plants, planting plants, feeding garden and adding bark chips as cover garden beds. Note some areas of garden is steep.
House where there is a guest room with a double bed. Own bathroom for guests. All linen (towels, sheets) provided.
Meal preparation/laying the table and washing up can also be seen as a shared responsibility.
Would like help keeping house clean during your stay. Prefer non smokers.
There is a large number of bush walks, different lengths through beautiful national parks. Also visit the famous three sisters, scenic railway/ skyway / cable car, historical houses and hotels, small galleries and lots of cafes and restaurants.
