Hi from the beautiful South West of WA. I have been a workawayer and traveller myself. Having returned from living in Italy for the last 10 months, I would now like to host at my home.
My husband, 22 year old son & I live on a lovely 30 acre property near the town of Bridgetown, a couple of 100kms south of the capital of WA, Perth. I used to breed Welsh Mountain ponies but now we only have a few cows.
The closest little town is Greenbushes (approx. 4km) and a bigger town with all amenities is Bridgetown (16kms). Bunbury is about 1 hours drive and there is a daily bus from Bridgetown. It would be easier if you have a car but if not, I go into Bridgetown regularly and to Bunbury every couple of weeks, you are welcome to join me.
Our property is surrounded by state forest, beautiful for bush walking, running or mountain biking. We are also very close to the Bibbulum Track.
The house is comfy and casual, you will have your own private room on the ground floor and share a bathroom with us.
Help in the house
Fresh air, physical activity and a sharing of cultures and conversation. I have hosted lots of Couch surfers over the years and love meeting people from other countries. On your time off you can try mountain biking (we have bikes), bush walking and swimming. You will learn how an Aussie household operates! My husband Martin is from a farming background and can do most anything so you can learn a variety of different skills when he has the time.
We want to do some much needed maintenance on our house and garden and would love to host a couple of people to give us a hand and to share cultures, meals and good conversation. I am home during the day and will be recovering from neck surgery so will be limited in what I can do physically.
We need fit people as the garden needs some attention as well as some odd jobs around the property. 2 people would be great and we can put another bed in the room if you are not a couple.
We need fit, honest, energetic, clean people who are happy to do a variety of jobs, can keep their space clean and tidy and are happy to be part of the family. No drugs, drunks or freeloaders. (non smokers preferred, no smoking in the house).
We are flexible so you can enjoy your time in this beautiful part of the world.
English & a little Italian
You will have a large comfortable bedroom with a queen size bed on the ground floor off the gym area. The room has direct access to the outside. We only have 1 bathroom so you will share that with the family. (We do have a second toilet :-)) The house is comfy and casual with wifi.
My husband works long hours but is very sporty and you are welcome to join him swimming, mountain biking (we have bikes you can use) and road biking. We also have a small gym (your bedroom is situated off this) that you can use. I expect anyone staying in my house to be tidy and pickup/cleanup after themselves.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week
