Experienced gardeners and handypersons needed! Please email. Due to a change in work, we have homes in both Cairns and Bloomfield. Now, we need help getting our house in Bloomfield River ready for sale. It has been gathering cobwebs, mould and weeds for nearly a year. We need people to help by seriously cleaning, paint, mow, whipper-snip etc up there. Ideally stay up there for a few longer days of work, then have time off at our home in Cairns to be tourists. We are a couple in our early 50's & 30 year old son has recently returned from overseas and is happily here with us for now. Ben is studying engineering at Uni and into cycling. We prefer helpers aged 30+, so we can all relate. In Cairns we are 6km from city centre on half-acre (2000mm2) of gently sloping land that backs onto a creek & bush - very quiet & private. Spare room in house with double/single bunk bed. Two hours per day per person work, in exchange for accommodation and prepare your own meals in our kitchen (preferred), or 4 hours per day meals and accommodation. No smoking inside.
We have a dog, indoor cats & backyard chickens. Work is generally garden maintenance, cleaning, looking after animals, home improvements,mechanical repairs. Photos: guest bedroom,lounge room, chickens in back yard, Nerida (on right) & her sister by the pool, in Cairns. In Bloomfield (photo 5) we have a basic home in the jungle, walking distance to the wharf, shop etc & a self-contained granny flat with a single/double bunk bed combo, own bathroom & kitchenette.
