  • Description


    Hi I live in a share house with one other person (male) and a cat. I live less than a 5 minute walk from Narrabeen Beach which is a suburb about an hours bus ride from the city. I'd love help tidying and cleaning my house as I am not a good housekeeper. If you have permaculture or vegetable gardening skills that would be fantastic. I also have some painting and building work. I have Norwegian heritage and travel to Europe regularly. When I work I work in the Film and TV Industry finding the background artists (Extras). PLEASE SAY HELLO KARI I LIKE CATS when you respond I will not reply to messages that are obviously sent out to everyone who lives in Sydney!!!!

    a lazy older Australian's way of life very close to the beach :) Local knowledge I love showing you the sights. My thoughts are you are here to see a new country so I don't expect you to just be tidying my house the whole time, I want you to have fun and see the sights, to be beneficial for both of us, I'd like to make new friends, not have you stay in your bedroom all the time, if you are up for a swim every morning with me that would be an added bonus. I lead a healthy lifestyle, cook healthy foods and like to see you enjoying yourself, you might even get to play cards against humanity with my friends or pub trivia, after all this is your holiday BUT it is my house, if I feel you are taking advantage and not being respectful you'll be asked to move on, if we connect and all is smooth sailing you can stay for awhile :)

    I need help cleaning; tidying and organising my house and garden. No smokers or vegans or special dietaty needs like gluten free. Must like cats and be mindful not to let the cat escape. Prefer older workawayers 40 or over. if you haven't read this I'll not respond. Permaculture or vegetable garden experience an advantage. Painting or minor building projects.

    Google Northern Beaches Sydney - I live between the surf beach and a lagoon. Narrabeen is one of the top surfing beaches in the world it's a half an hour bus ride to Manly Beach. There's bushwalking, kayaking, paddleboarding, fishing, swimming and surfing. Restaurants and cafes are within walking distance. Lots of bushwalking and coastal walks.
