They enjoy hosting guests.

    We have a large garden that often needs weeding. There are simple house cleaning tasks or splitting firewood. Lucia produces games and programs for speech therapy, so there is some work making up game kits, laminating, cutting, collating cards. If you are good with uploading photos, simple website maintenance and computer work, this could be useful. The kitchen needs painting... We will find a job for you!

    Marlo is situated in a remote area which does not have a lot of public transport. We can drive and pick you up/drop you off at the nearest town which is Orbost. Orbost is on the Vline bus route. Sometimes a pick up /drop off from the Vline train at Bairnsdale or Sale is also possible.
    The area is very beautiful with untouched beaches, an estuary (where we paddle) much wildlife and amazing bush. We love to cycle, run and stand-up paddleboard. We can certainly lend you a bike (as we have many). There is opportunity for hiking on the bush tracks or on the beach, swimming and paddling. The birdlife is incredible and you are almost guaranteed to see a kangaroo or wallaby during your stay. Photographers think this place is heaven.
    There is only one pub and two small shops in Marlo - so not a lot to do when it comes to shopping!
    We also host cycling tourists who LOVE staying here.
    The area suits someone who loves the outdoors, exercising, or someone who is after a quiet retreat.
    We cook vegetarian meals (occasionally fish).
