Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Welcome traveller :)
You can stay for long or short term. We can take you for a minimum of one week as we prefer to really get to know you.
Longer term stay is preferred for a compatible person. There is a short trial period so both you and I together can decide if we will extend your stay.
You will enjoy our family home nestled in beautiful Australian rainforest just outside Brisbane. Our home is not in the city.
You will see wildlife, birds, reptiles, lots of nature and kangaroos.
Our home is 40 minutes drive to Brisbane city. There is no public transport, however, I drive to the outer suburbs a couple of times a week and can take you with me. From there you can catch many choices of public transport.
You will be staying with a household of 5 others, two cats and me.
You get three meals a day and accommodation in exchange for four hours work a day. If you stay for a week you have one day off.
Your tasks are housework, cooking, cleaning and a little garden work. Occasionally there is some building, fixing, administration, computer help and other random stuff.
If you let me know what work you are good at, I'll do my best to give tasks relevant to your skills.
You will be required to cook a quick, simple, healthy meal each night. You do not need to be a chef. We eat very simple food, that is easy to prepare. Meat, rice and vegetables or a one-pot meal are perfect. You will need to be able to follow our recipes in English and cook it on your own without help.
We are meat eaters. I don't mind if you don't eat meat although you will need to prepare and cook meat as part of your tasks.
We supply good, wholesome, healthy food. We do not supply sugared food, treat food, dairy products or snacks between meals. If you would like these foods, you will need to supply them yourself.
If you are vegetarian or vegan you will need to supply your own food outside of the small serve of vegetables for lunch and dinner that is provided. You can have large serves of rice or pasta and bread with your meals. Our meals are made up of mostly meat and we rarely eat a purely vegetarian meal.
We are very busy people who work from home, in the community and in Brisbane, so you will need to be able to do your tasks independently.
We bushwalk, swim, dance, do yoga and workout from time to time. We play, sing and laugh in our spare time. And love it when you get involved. In work times we are very structured and focused.
I do not take smokers. So if you intend to smoke please do not apply. If you would like to take this opportunity to have a break from smoking or to quit – even if it is just while you stay with us, then you are very welcome.
I am unable to sign for your visa due to visa policy or sponsor you.
Dates six months in advance is all that is currently released. If you'd like to book in later than the next six months, please contact me later in the year when these dates are released.
What you will experience here are authentic, alternative people who are real and who show their emotions. :)
