  • Description


    Hi There, I'm Denise. My children have grown up and left home and I started having travellers come and stay about 7 years ago. I've had lots of people stay, via word of mouth, workaway and other schemes.

    I work from home making jewellery in my downstairs studio and it's sometimes very busy. Help with the house, garden, my dog/s and ongoing renovations is always needed.
    I love cooking good food, sharing a wine and hearing about other countries and cultures. I have travelled quite a bit myself, but never enough, so it's wonderful to hear of others adventures. I am looking for couples or females to stay and prefer a minimum of 2 weeks and maximum of 1 month, but everything is negotiable.

    The house is on the north side of Mount Coolum. We used to have ocean views, but the beautiful trees mostly block them now, although you do get a glimpse.
    It's a nice healthy walk to the beach or to climb Mt Coolum which is virtually on the doorstep. Coolum is a beautiful beachside town that is a quick bus ride or a 6km walk, or just half an hour bus ride to either Noosa or Maroochydore.

    I am looking for help to keep the house clean and tidy, share cooking and I have a 1/4 acre block which is always in need of loads of attention, I am also doing a renovation at the moment so need help with keeping things tidy, painting etc. The set up probably suits a couple best.

    What else ...

    I have had a few people stay over the years, mostly by word of mouth and have really enjoyed the experience. They have mostly helped a little in the studio, in the garden, with renovations as well as basic housework and spent their spare time at the beach or enjoying all that the beautiful Sunshine Coast has to offer. This house enjoys nice food and wine or beer and like to be fairly social if there is time. its a non smoking house, but outside smokers are okay.
