45 mins to Hobart and 5 mins to the lovely village of Cygnet where there are markets on Sundays,lovely Cafe's, pubs and shops and a thriving yacht club.
We have almost 3 acres on the Huon River. Its a large wooden house surrounded by beautiful trees, gardens and lawns The property goes down to the river and we have a jetty where there is a small rowing boat and a Kayak which can be launched from there.
Downstairs there are two bedrooms with a double bed in each room. There is a self contained bathroom to service both rooms. The rooms go out to the garden and can be accessed from outside without having to come in through the house.
The outside area is covered and has a large table fridge & stove etc. An evening meal will be with the family. Bronwen is vegetarian therefore our diet is mainly vegetarian though Nick eats meat occasionally. All produce is grown locally and mainly organic.
I have mainly landscaping & gardening jobs though at the present there is a little painting left to do on the house and There are some stone retaining walls and steps under construction and finishing off a tree house is the sort of work one can expect.
I have a 4 wheel drive ute which is available to get you into town when you want and I have a "kanga" a machine which can bore holes. dig trenches, level and move soil etc.
For recreation we have a modern 30' sailboat which is used for poking around the Channel and Bruny Island. there is also a lapstrake boat which is available for fishing or exploring with a small outboard or oars.
Myself and my partner have two Children a boy Lachlan 9 and a girl Myffie 5 and our dog Bosun.
We are easy going and open minded and staying with us one would experience a friendly family type environment. We enjoy having our children meet different people with a different language and culture. We would be happy to host young or mature people with skills of some sort and if a couple we would like one of you with some cooking skills.
Jobs at the mo are painting, garden and landscaping, and just generally helping out however if you have specific skills we would be keen to utilise them.
A Happy disposition with enthusiasm for life in general is all one needs to stay at our place.
I would expect 5 hours a day of your time in return for board and lodgings.
C u soon I hope!
