My Husband and I own an acre backed on a reserve south of Perth, complete with ducks, chickens, dogs, fish and numerous wildlife and birds. We are finishing off numerous projects and intend to run marriage courses/ workshops here in the near future. Close to the city but still a country feel, we are central to city, beaches, mountains, airport and close to shops. We have a pool, a bike path (bikes to use) out our back gate, guest would have private room with spa, fridge, kettle and toilet. There is a lot to see close by Cohuna for koalas, Kitty gorge, Mt Hood for hiking or Mt biking, Dams, reptile farms, breweries, cideries, the lure of all Perth has to offer bus runs every half hour to train station during the week and hourly on the weekend. In exchange for work we will provide cereals/milk for breakfast, sandwich fixings and fruit/snacks for your day and evening meals with us if desired. We are asking 4 hrs a day m-f with weekends off so we can be an ambassador for Australia and show you some of it while also allowing you to self explore, there is much to see and do!!. We are "specifically" looking for someone who has building or carpentry skills, mechanically inclined, doesn't mind painting, gardening and has a great work ethic, honest, reliable, positive attitude when it comes to work, nonsmoking, animal loving and humor is welcome! The term of stay and when hours are worked is negotiable and dependent on integrity. You will find us respectful, kind and appreciative. We are well travelled and in our 40's.
