  • Description


    I am a 39 year old guy, living with my 2 adorable pugs on the shores of jervis bay in southern NSW. I have a gorgeous 3 bedroom beach house that needs regular maintenance and love. Im a 2 minute walk from the beach, 5 mins to the local shops. Swimming, surfing and fishing are all daily routines in our household. I am on a renovation project at the moment and need some help with weeding gardens, walking the dogs, cleaning the house and simple help as i work around the property making my home modern and updated. I am about half way through the project and only have another 4 to 6 weeks to complete before i need to head back to Sydney for work.
