PLEASE NOTE: We are often booked out in advance over the warmer months so please be specific about the dates you are requesting.

We live in a small house in a quiet tree lined street in Elwood, very close to St Kilda and very close to the beach. Excellent access to public transport and the city. Bicycles and helmets are also available to use.

Great loft room that is very private, TV, DVD, CD, large comfy bed, reverse cycle air conditioned and opening ceiling windows. Access to WiFi and all mod cons available.

DIY breakfast stuff supplied, dinner provided ( hoping for someone who can cook now and again but not essential).

It's an old period house, so only one shared bathroom but renovated with good kitchen and living spaces. The room has one large bed so it's ideal for a single, at the moment we are unable to accommodate couples or groups.

We are an older couple, now both retired and would like someone to help do a bit of outdoor yard work, basic house maintanence and maybe some cooking if you can actually cook. If you have any specific skills that would be great but also an opportunity to explore Melbourne or plan your next move. Looking for no more than a contribution of 2/3 hours a day on average, very flexible and relaxed.

You must not only like dogs but have experience with them as they are part of the family! They also love a play and a walk. Our kids are grown up and you must be self motivated, we are not that interested in parenting anyone! You would be welcome to join in with all family activities and events.

Length of stay negotiable but please clearly indicate how long and dates you are looking for if making enquiry. Preference is given to stays of two weeks or less.

Please don't send us a generic message, tell us a bit about yourself. Sorry but we do not provide resettlement or long term accommodation and prefer an exchange with genuine travelers in the spirit of helpx.

We also prefer people without a car as parking can be very difficult in the area. No smoking inside the house but outside is fine.
