    Last minute update:
    at this stage we can only host for a maximum of 4 nights. We are looking for help with painting and for a carpenter. It is ok to contact us at the last minute. We prefer non smokers as we are trying to quit!

    We live in central Geraldton (near Northgate shopping centre), a windsurfing town 400 km north of Perth. We are a couple in our 50's but act much younger.
    We live a simple life and are very laid back. We are riders and enjoy combining motorcycle riding and travelling.
    We offer short term accommodation only more if we work well together. You can use our kitchen to cook your own meals. You’ll have your own room (2 single beds with good quality mattresses) with a TV in the attic. You will have some privacy and some ocean views.
    In exchange we are asking for 4 hours of help per day.
    We can speak English, French, Italian and little Spanish and are happy to meet people from all around the world, especially from Spain and South America as we would love to practise Spanish!
    We live in the centre and enjoy nice sunset views over the HMAS Memorial and the ocean. Watching the sun go down while exchanging travelling stories and discussing different cultures and life adventures is a nice way to end the day!
    We are looking forward to meeting you.
    PS: Geraldton is a great place for vacation if you like the beach. Geraldton is also called “Suncity” as the weather is great all year round. The Abrolhos islands are situated off the Geraldton coast.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in a coastal town with great weather and ideal for windsurfing.
    The beach lifestyle is the main attraction. Geraldton is called "Suncity" as the weather is great all year round.
    Geraldton is the biggest town between Perth and Darwin.
    You can get to Geraldton by Transwa bus from Perth. Around 6 hours trip and $70 a ticket. There is limited local bus transport in town. So it is good if you have your own transport. However we live right in town, 10 minutes walk from Coles or 2 minutes by car. You can see the ocean from our backyard and walk there in 20 minutes. The Abrolhos islands are off the Geraldton coast.
