I have a house on half an acre in the Eastern Hills of Perth. Most of my garden is just bush (no lawn etc) and native plants - except for surrounding the house. I have had lots of couchsurfers stay and they all like the fact that it is really laid back here and a good place to relax. I have 3 spare rooms - 1 double, 1 single and 1 with a camp bed. It is about 4kms to Mundaring - the nearest supermarkets - and public transport isnt wonderful, but there is some. Nearest commuter train station is Midland - 20kms away. With CS I have usually managed pick ups etc. I am close to the State Forest, Lake Leschenaultia (good to swim in fresh water) and John Forrest National Park.
Really I am looking for people to stay occasionally and help me clear up leaves and tree bark from the back garden (never ending in the Hills) and take it to the tip. I also sometimes have gutters to clean or weeding, or general handyman stuff but mostly can do that myself. I do have some veggies and herbs growing but I am not a wonderful gardener:-) I can offer just accommodation, or provide food too but prefer if we share the cooking (I am not into cooking much) I am happy to wash up afterwards! I am pretty flexible and relaxed. Generally I would like people to stay maybe 3 or 4 days but am willing to do one day if someone is stuck. I wouldn't expect more than 3 hours a day from a helper for accommodation and reasonable food and we can negotiate. An Aussie or international licence would be good to take the leaves to the tip but not essential. I have travelled a fair bit myself over the years and have enjoyed hosting loads of couch surfers so am used to people from different countries and cultures. Only really speak English but have a little bit of French.
