Old style elevated Darwin suburban family home- close to beach, bus stops and weekend markets. We are a friendly and welcoming female couple- an artist and a musician. Our kids have left home but live nearby! We have been left with the 3 cats.

We ask for your help 3 hours each a day- 6 days a week and then a day off. Work will be gardening, cooking, cleaning, spring cleaning! also in artists studio doing various jobs. We have a'Helpx Book'in which we communicate - we write your jobs and then you will record what you do every day in the book.

In return you will get your own COOL comfortable double room, use of bicycles. If you want to work 'double hours' one day then take a day off that's fine.
Meals can be a flexible arrangement, some people like to do their own food thing. We are often busy in the evenings and this arrangement seems to work out better for us at the moment.
At the weekends there is more time to share meals. In any case you will have use of your own fridge, and use of our big open plan kitchen.
Big rambling tropical garden with vegetable garden (that needs some work). We have a great salt water pool, lots of books, loads of birdlife in the garden; sulphur crested cockatoos, a family of spangled drongoes (like lyre birds)bee eaters, honey eaters, pigeons,scrubfowl.
We are a NON SMOKING, non vegetarian household, though we are very used to accommodating vegetarians, gluten free etc.

We will consider requests for a week at a time, and after that, it's all negotiable.

We are looking for sociable, self motivated COUPLES or 2 FRIENDS who understand and speak basic English- (or who can use a translator APP for every conversation.)
This is absolutely essential!

PLEASE CONTACT ME DIRECTLY BY EMAIL; sometimes I don't check the Helpx website.
Kind regards!]
