In addition to what we usually require (see below), we have an unusual opportunity for COMPETENT MALE TENNIS PLAYER. Our son will return from the States in JANUARY 2018 (he has spent 4 years playing collegiate tennis) and will require a hitting partner - a highly advanced tournament player who has received results in money based events and is still keen to get out there 5 or 6 days a week. We look forward to hearing from you if you think you could take up this opportunity. We will provide food and accommodation for 10 to 15 hours of hitting per week. This is NOT an opportunity for a social player - there are plenty of those in Cairns!

We live on a standard house block which is conveniently located on the northern side of Cairns.

Our home was built in the 1940s and is a classic Queensland timber home and therefore requires ongoing maintenance.

We require help with a variety of maintenance tasks, mostly gardening, some cleaning and cooking. Most of the work is in the garden. It is hot and humid in Cairns so I suggest that it is best to work early (6am to 10) or late in the afternoon (4 to 7pm). I think the work would mostly suit a couple at the moment. Landscaping and carpentry experience would be valued.

My husband and I both work full time and hence we would love to have you come and help us maintain our home.

This position would suit non smokers only.

We require 20 hours per week of work from each person in exchange for accommodation, breakfast and dinner. We are very flexible with how the 20 hours are completed across the week.

We prefer short term stays (a week to 10 days) as our accommodation is also listed on airbnb and homestay sites.
