We are currently looking for people that can assist us in following projects:

> MAIN PROJECT: We are in the process of transforming/beautifying/landscaping our amazing 12,000sqm elevated bush property and that journey has progressed wonderfully since we started in January 2017.

If that sort of work interests you by way of experience or if you are capable and wish to gain experience, then pls get in touch with us. You need to be physically fit and prepared for manual labour.

> SECONDARY PROJECTS: As we find time & talents, as such not a high priority atm:

- Airbnb experts to assist us with our new listings.

- We appreciate & respect your private space as we appreciate you will honour ours.

- We appreciate mature, well-mannered, honest, clean & orderly people that are used to living in shared living arrangements. We are non-smokers and would appreciate anyone staying with us to be the same. We can cater for both, Vegetarians & Non-Vegetarians.

- We also have a long past owning & running Restaurants & Resorts, plus owning & managing Holiday Let's. As such, we are used being around guests & visitors.

- We are located in an elevated & forested area of the southern Gold Coast with close proximity to all amenities such as beaches, shopping centres, plus even an international airport (Gold Coast) etc.

- If you donít have your own transport, we can see that arrangements can be made for drop-offs & pick-ups.

- We have two reasonably separate guest rooms, both featuring queen size beds. We also have good cable internet access at our home, being distributed within the premises via WIFI.

Thanking you and looking forward hearing from you!
