  • Description

    Description

    We are a retired couple living in inner Brisbane with adult children and their families nearby. We are non smokers, and we do not welcome smoking on our property. We live on a medium sized block, (1100 sqm) with two dogs and two cats and a lovely garden. We keep bees, and grow our own vegetables. We’re looking for help in the garden, and assistance around the house. We are close to public transport, and our lovely city is easily accessible.

    We are both well educated, enjoy conversation and are keen to share our knowledge of our country. Visitors will have a chance to practise their English language skills, we like meeting people. We have travelled extensively, and love to hear about other people’s journeys. We enjoy sharing meals at our dining table. We enjoy all foods and are both exciting cooks.
