    Description

    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, Coco and cat, Amber.

    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 language skills (but it is not essential that you speak this language). Also my pets love visitors.

    Stay could include pet sitting for my furry family - Coco (dog - Labrador/German short hair) and Amber (kitten - Burmese) while I go away (I teach in Sydney a few days/nights a week and prefer not to commute each day). They are great company and Coco 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.
