Hello, my name is Graham.
NOTE "As of the 20th of December I have 12 days off out of 14. Please come and stay and enjoy Christmas with me.
And a little work. LOL.
I am a 57 year old gentleman who owns 2.5 acres of sloping land in the country thirty minutes drive west of Mackay.
I am a non-smoker who enjoys a drive in the country, markets, cafes, fishing and camping. My home overlooks a small valley and has some charming characteristics.
Airlie Beach is less than two hours away by road.
For your consideration:
Although there is a major highway near my home there is no public transport, so if my helpxers have no transport I usually collect and drop them off from the Mackay Airport, local transport terminals or Airlie Beach.
I am interested in many things, sustainability and world issues among some of them.
My home-stay is a place to recharge your battery's, study, watch tv, read a book, learn English, save money.
WI-Fi is available, around 50 GB in total per month, plus mobile phone reception is ok.
I love to show my guests around the area if they are interested.
Markets, bush walking, wildlife, cafe's, are all possibilities.
The work is housekeeping, washing cars, making meals, dusting, feeding a cat, sweeping at the moment. My house is very dusty at the moment because the neighbor is doing earthworks.
I enjoy the different and varied company and the work is easy.
I enjoy helping with English, explaining my life experiences and listening to my guests stories.
My main requirement is you respect my property.
Sometimes I will take holidays if I have a major project to complete.
Be aware I work in Mackay for five days.
I am away all the day but home at night when working.
Then I have 5 days off, then work 5, then 5 days off, and so on.
