  • Description

    Description

    We are a small, friendly family with one dog living in a quiet, picturesque part of Sydney, 5 minutes walk to the beach. We are non smokers and expect that you are too. The city of Sydney is a 40 minute bus ride away.
    Mother is a retired school teacher, husband is a retired plumber. We have 2 adult daughters. We are well travelled and enjoy hosting interesting and helpful guests. We are happy to host travellers who are neat and tidy and are able to work unsupervised on a job. We are especially interested in taking anyone who can clean, iron etc and don't mind a little bit of gardening. We are NOT vegetarians so works best if you are not as well.
