    Description

    We, Liam (37, from Texas) & Sabrina (30, from the Netherlands), live on a beautiful property in Yelgun. Liam has two children, a 9 year old girl and a 13 year old boy. They stay most of the time with us.

    It’s a 41 acres property on top of a hill in Yelgun with an expansive view overlooking the ocean and jumping whales. Wake up with the most wonderful sunrises. A perfect location between Byron Bay and the Gold Coast and 5 minutes away from the highway.
    If you love nature this is the place for you.

    We are building our own place and we have a small cabin with kitchen, a cosy living room and a bathroom. We could use some help around the house, like helping in the household and keeping the house tidy, cook and prepare some meals, and someone who likes gardening. We really need someone to give the veggies some love and keep the grass in shape. We prefer someone who loves animals as we have a lovely cat Isis our queen of the house and the cutest dog Stella. We also have chickens so every morning you can help yourself with some fresh eggs from the happiest hens in the Byron Shire.

    At the moment our dog is pregnant and around the 22nd of May we expect her babies. It would be amazing if someone could look after her while we are at work.

    In return for some work around the house, single 20 hours and a couple 15 hours each, we have a beautiful tipi tent with a queen bed and a futon couch. You will share the kitchen, living room and bathroom with us. So although for the most part you'll look after your own meals. We would love to know you and have dinners together too. Just to be aware, on the property we live from a water tank so unfortunately we can’t have unlimited showers or doing lots of laundry.

    It’s a great place to relax, soak up the peaceful environment and explore the beautiful area. You could make use of the surfboards or kayak. It will we ideal if you have your own car as we live on top of a hill and there are no shops close by or public transport. Of course we can work out something and give you a ride to Byron and pick you after work for example. Everything is flexible and negotiable.

    Contact me if you’re interested :)

    Accommodation

    You will stay in a beautiful tipi tent with a queen bed and a futon couch. When you open the tent you can enjoy every morning the best sunrises. There is also a heater so you will be warm as its getting slowly colder. We have good internet reception on top of the hill. We have WiFi as well, but it works slowly and not very strong in the tent.

    You will share the kitchen, living room and bathroom with us. Just to be aware, on the property we live from a water tank so unfortunately we can’t have unlimited showers or doing lots of laundry.

    We offer food in exchange for 20 hours. The fridge is always full. You can help yourself or get some fresh lettuce or veggies from the garden. We have also chickens who provide eggs every day. Most of the time you will look after your own meals, but we will have family dinners as well.
