Hello,.
I have a lovely property which I have listed on airbnb for paying guests, pool, spa, sauna, lovely rooms, great garden, bbq, games etc While I don't have paying guests I invite travellers from Helpex to enjoy the property in exchange for work. You will stay in very clean, comfortable and private rooms.
We need help in the following:- up to 6 friends depending on dates, carpenter, handyman, electrician, mechanic, plumber. You will need good English (to follow instructions) a happy personality and a good worker. Also need gardening, mainly weeding unless experienced in compost making, pruning etc.

Also need someone strong able to use chainsaw to help me collect wood for sculpting. If you'd enjoy working on the sculptures, sanding and polishing and have the skill (I can teach you but it does require fast work and energy - it is rewarding to see the wood transform).

Perth is now the most expensive city in Australia - the 15th most expensive in the world - (more than New York!), so I will expect a fair work exchange. I am a fair and happy host who goes out of her way to assist people, and help make their trip pleasant, (check out my references!). We eat well(mainly organic and healthy) and enjoy life.

Work hours depend on how well you work and skills involved. Longer hours can be worked in order to take days off for sightseeing. For proper building trade skills 3.5 hours, otherwise 4.5 hours for simple gardening or unskilled labor. The hours worked will really depend on your efficiency in getting the work done, just so long as it works out a fair exchange for both of us.

U can use us as base camp if u want to go on elsewhere! Sometimes people leave their luggage or cars to go to Bali or camping and pick them up later. We have some camping gear, tents, sleeping bags, etc for loan.

Must be able to work alone with initiative and follow instructions, with good English, good work ethics and be reliable. (i.e. be proud of your work - do a good job).

EMAIL FIRST - list your work experience your likes and dislikes.
I am a friendly host - willing to show guests good spots to go. We have nice rooms, great house and good company - relaxed atmosphere. Includes use laundry, travel/health library and Wifi for emails but not for downloading.
