This is a small AAA 4.5 star rated award winning retreat located on 5 acres in Bridgetown, Western Australia (just a 3 hour drive south of Perth). Adjoining Maslin Reserve KalyaaNa's garden is water wise and designed using permaculture, organic and sustainable living principles. Includes 30+ varieties of fruit trees, fire pit, walking paths, shaded seating areas, animal feeding (with a fistful of hay and muesli you’ll be an alpacas best friend, get up close and learn all about our alpaca and our other fury friends) and bird watching. More than 80 bird species including Western rosellas, parrots, blue wrens, honey-eaters, finches, red robins, whistlers, pigeons, kookaburras and numerous water birds, reside in the Blackwood River Valley for all or part of each year. Reducing compost are our keen gardeners (in both consuming pests and providing manure) the chickens, geese, ducks and turkeys. They keep our kitchen well stocked with free-range eggs and provide enjoyment for our guests. The KalyaaNa spa facility adjoins the retreat. Within the spa facility is the Zen Fitness Studio and which is adjoined by the Dharma Meditation Room. Retreat living couldn’t be more inspirational while watching the sun bathe the lush Maslin Reserve with a majestic golden hue.

We are looking for either a couple or two people travelling together to help with the running of our retreat and gardens. Practical, honest, social and reliable people willing to learn new skills are very welcome. You need to be physically fit and able to speak good English. We offer a one week trial with the option to stay longer if suited. We will provide accommodation and three meals per day (breakfast/ lunch and evening meals). In return we require 20 hours per week. Times/ days flexible. Variety of work including gardening, mowing, weeding, pruning, painting, cooking, light house work/ cleaning, light farm duties, and carpentry/ building. If you have other skills we would be interested in hearing about them.
