We live on a beautiful quiet 3.5 acre bush property in Healesville, about 1 km from the shops. There is plenty of space and it is a lovely, peaceful environment here.
Our place best suits an independent couple or two friends who would like their own space as the accommodation is In a small separate cottage. I am a very busy single parent so although I can join in with work sometimes, I’m not able to do as much as I would like!
The main work is removing weeds in the bush such as blackberries by digging and pulling out. We don’t use poisons. Sometimes, some cleaning too :)
Accommodation dates vary as the cottage is also online for rental and is sometimes booked so stays need to fit in with that. We can find times that work though!
We have travelled a lot in the last few years, spending time mainly in France and surrounding countries and parts of S E Asia. Before children I also travelled through Africa, South America, USA, Europe, Middle East and North East & West Asia...We am very interested in other cultures!
Please note we are a smoke free property.

Our bush property is a great place to experience the Australian bush without having to go too far from Melbourne. With beautiful big trees, there are many birds and even the occasional kangaroo!
Having travelled so much, we are happy to meet people from other countries and welcome them to our place but we are also a quiet family and need our family time :)
The little cottage provides a beautiful and private bush retreat.

A tiny cottage to yourself, with two rooms - kitchen/dining and a tiny sitting area with double loft bed over plus bathroom with a bath and a verandah facing the sunset
At other times there are holiday guests who stay so it needs to be left in a super clean and tidy state.
I provide food and workaweyers manage their own meals. There is a simple two burner hot plate, a toaster, jug and bar fridge.
Please ask if you have any questions :)
