    Hi there!

    We are a young active family. Justin and Claire, with our 2 children: now aged 12 and 14.

    We live in beautiful Busselton, in South West, Western Australia.

    We are sociable and friendly, love meeting new people and finding out about other cultures and experiences. Our visitors can be involved in our meals and activities or be independent spending time freely.

    We look forward to meeting you!

    Your guest room:
    Our guests stay in tent, with bed, table, linen, towels etc provided. They also enjoy their own private garden room, with fridge, sofa, table, chairs, tv etc in the garden, with electricity - so plenty of space for yourself.

    Wifi is available.
    Toilet, laundry and shower are available in the house.

    Alternatively you can bring your own camp / trailer / camper van set up.

    House Tasks
    - If you love organising, light cleaning (possibly cooking but not usually) than you are very welcome to help to reorganise our busy home!
    - Tutoring in key subjects - are you an experienced teacher or tutor?

    Garden Tasks:
    We have a large garden, including herbs and vegetables which need ongoing weeding, planting and mowing regularly.

    If you prefer a project, you could help us by:
    - Creating new pathways in the garden.
    - Paint the patio fencing
    - Upgrading our hen enclosure, so that it is fox proof and tidy

    * We work from home online - so our guests must be organised, self-motivated and happy to work independently.
    * Experience is a bonus

    Our area:
    We live in beautiful Busselton, in the South West of Western Australia. The beach is a short walk or cycle ride from our home. This is a vibrant beach town. Perfect for guests that want to enjoy the relaxed ocean Australian lifestyle.

    We are close to the stunning beaches and national parks of Margaret River and Dunsborough, and a 5 minute cycle ride to the iconic Busselton Jetty. Perth is our nearest major city, approximately 2 hours away.

    We can provide information on the local area, travel and things to do.

    Coach travel is available from Perth to Busselton. We can collect from the coach station, or the local Busselton Airport (flights from Perth, Sydney and Melbourne).
    Note: public transport is very limited. A car is advisable, or a bike to get around easily.

    Food is not included. You are welcome to use the kitchen, BBQ and will have your own fridge. We do usually share some meals together with guests, but are not responsible for organising guest's meals and shopping.

    Guests must enjoy the company of young, active, chatty children and a small dog.

    Let us know if you have any particular practical skills, for example:-

    * Video editing or other digital skills.
    * Building / trade skills (carpentry, landscaping, walls, fencing, etc)
    * Sport, music or language coaching

    Volunteer Exchange

    In exchange we ask for 5 hours each day, 4 days a week, carrying out practical tasks around the house and garden.
    The rest of the time is your own free time to explore!

    We are flexible on times of days and days worked, but prefer an early start to each work day so that we can show you tasks before our work and school day starts.

    The majority of tasks needed are physical, practical tasks - so working clothes are advised:-

    • Gardening; weeding, planting, mowing etc.
    • Projects - fences, hen area, painting etc
    • Housekeeping: organising cupboards, cleaning, tidying can be useful

    Food is not usually provided

    Both parents work from home, so gusts must be able to get on with tasks without supervision.

    Please tidy up after your tasks and put items away.
