    Hello everyone. I am in need of a couple or single to give me a big hand at my home near a mountain very close to the city of Brisbane.👍🌻

    Hi friends, my name is Lozz and I live with 7 chickens, 1 cat Max and a pooch called India. We are nestled into a leafy area of Brisbane at the bottom of Mt Coot-tha 20 minutes from the city.

    I am vegetarian and am a teacher and an NLP Practitioner. I've been opening up my home to foreign exchange students and workaways from all around the world for the past 9 years. I like cooking and traveling whenever I possibly can. I also love meeting new people, sharing what I have, and learning about new cultures that could potentially leave a footprint on my home.

    I choose to live my life through happiness and laughter with positive people and plenty of smiles. If this sounds like you - I'd love to give you a big fat welcome to Brissy. India will love to meet you all too. I am looking for someone to help me with cooking and cleaning and yard work, keeping the pool in good order. Walking and spending time with the pooch is also fun.

    I am looking for someone/s to help me out with cooking the evening meal, keeping the house and yard and pool tidy and most of all spoiling my beautiful animals with walks and cuddles. I am looking for people who can jump in and help out especially in these areas. You start each day walking the pooch and help clean the chickens area and keep the pool and yard in good condition. In exchange I offer you an Australian experience and a happy, warm and friendly home to experience. Anyone who is handy with tools would be a bonus. I am vegetarian so sorry no meat. Anyone who likes to cook would be amazing.

    Anyone who has handyman skills is really needed around my home. Lots of fix it up jobs need doing. A very big place for one person, who works, to keep on top of, so any help would be great. Looking forward to sharing my home with you.

    I have big house that I have trouble maintaining and lately it has been a battle between Lozz vs garden, especially after the flood. Sadly, the garden is winning the war. I don't have enough time to put the love into my house that it rightly deserves. Some extra sets of hands would go a long long way. Everyone has different skills and talents so I'm confident there are chores around this place that urgently requires your help. From building to gardening and everything in between, my house needs some serious love and attention that I don't have the time to give. The pool needs constant care and my gutters need cleaning, and garden is getting away from me. Bring your energy and your can-do attitude. Anyone with building experience would be amazing. I would just love to have someone who loves to cook of an evening meal (vegetarian) or we can do it together and walk my pooch and collect the eggs and keep the house and pool all neat and tidy. There will be loads of time left to go out adventuring the sites of Brisbane. If you play guitar or piano I have those for you to tinker on. Special jobs I am needing done ....planting in the garden and some painting inside the house. Look forward to meeting you. 👍😀🐕🐈🐓🐓🐓🐓

  • Accommodation


    I have a large 5 bedroom house with spare rooms with leafy outlooks. There is free wifi and meals are included. If you enjoy dabbling in the kitchen this is the place for you. There is a mountain at the end of the street so hiking or walking (especially with my pooch India) is fun. In summer a dip in the pool to cool off after your hike. In winter there is a warm fire place to curl up around.

    What else ...

    There is a beautiful bush walking track at the end of my street that takes you right up the top of Mt Coot-tha with breathtaking views of Brisbane. It's very addictive - and feel free to take India the pooch with you. She loves it. There's a bus stop down the road that can connect you with anywhere you want to go. Please non smokers only as I lost my dad from smoking so my home is a smoke free zone. Looking forward to meeting you. 😀🐕🐈🐔🐔🐔🐔
