We have enjoyed a lot of travelling in the past and would like to continue our connections with travellers from our lovely home.
Scenic Samford valley features Samford Village, which is 2.5kms from our home. There are bicycles available to borrow. Nearby there are many mountain biking trails and numerous bush walks.
Samford Village contains several preserved heritage buildings, a fascinating history museum, several cafes and restaurants, a century old pub, an old-fashioned Saturday country market (monthly), an active arts scene and an active community particularly at the Samford Commons.
At home there is a relaxing atmosphere, a large pool to enjoy in summer and open fires in winter. And if you need a city fix, it's a 30 minute drive to the CBD or 30 minutes by train from Ferny Grove Station. We can make arrangements to drop you at the train station on some days.
We are an older couple. Phil is semiretired and busy with some community work. I am working full time, starting a new business. We are keen for assistance regenerating the rainforest along the river (it's more like a creek at the moment), upgrading and maintaining the flower and vegetable gardens and orchard, playing with our three beautiful poodles, cleaning the pool and cooking. There is the possibility computer tuition could be helpful for Phil and some social media content creation would be useful for Kristina. If you're into yoga I would enjoy some yoga lessons. There is always some kind of work to be done on the property so general maintenance, painting or cleaning are all possibilities. There is also the possibility of some art projects should that interest you. If you enjoy cooking it would be great to have some input in the kitchen.
We have two double bedrooms for guests. One is occasionally occupied by our adult children when they visit. One bedroom is in the house on the ground floor. The other bedroom is next to the pool away from the house. There is a shared bathroom on the ground floor. Our accommodation is upstairs. There are fans but not airconditioners in the bedrooms. As the house is rammed earth it's temperature is cool in summer and warm in winter.

We provide all meals and accommodation. We are meat eaters, but love vegetarian and vegan meals and can happily cater for you if you are vegetarian or vegan. If you are interested in cooking that would be good.
We are neat and would ask the same of any house guests.
We have enjoyed having people from many parts of the world crew with us when we have been cruising on our yacht and look to continue the cultural exchange with workawayers.
