  • Descripción


    We are an older couple, Vicki and Herman, living on 5 acres in north east Victoria. We have olive and chestnut trees, raspberries, lemon and orange trees and a small veggie patch. We have many trees in a park like setting with a dam. Help required is weeding in garden area, hand watering pot plants around the house, pruning, general maintenance, mulching, composting, whipper snipping, planting and general chores of maintaining a home and acreage. We currently have no animals. We are relaxed, well travelled and love cultural exchanges. We have house sat in Turkey, UK, France, Netherlands, New Zealand and Australia. We are also avid Airbnb uses and house sitters. We are looking for people who would like to help maintain our home and enjoy sampling country living. We are retired, healthy and active. We volunteer in our local community and care about our environment. We have solar power connected to main grid, tanks and bore water and self contained sewerage system.
