Hi there!

We are a couple in our 30' and 50', no kids but currently pregnant with twins :) , one friendly dog and speak English, French, German and Spanish. (Geoff's mother tongue = English, Celine's mother tongue = "Swiss"-French).

We leave on the hills 25 minutes drive from Perth (Kalamunda WA Australia) with a bus commuting directly to the Perth CBD from our street and plenty parking if you have a vehicle. Kalamunda village and its shops, cafes, pubs and market is 2 km away and easily accessible by bus, car our a 25 minutes walk.

Apart of Perth and its coastal life, there are plenty of activities in the surrounding of the Perth hills: for example the Bibbulmun Track, camel ride, outdoor cinema in the forest, John Forest National Park, Lake Leschanolti, Mundaring Weir, Boutiques Wineries, Kayaking, etc.

Our large family colonial house needs some renovations in the basement and around the house. Occasionally we also need help with the general cleaning and weeding.

In the future, we will also prepare the land (garden retainer and soil preparation) to enlarge our orchard (all organic) and when this is done we envisage to also build a chicken run/pen.

The tasks would be mainly some help with handy work to help Geoff with some projects around the house.

There will be as well some house maintenance (with a little bit of weeding, some ironing and some help with general cleaning (floor) in the house and at mealtime).

In addition to the task allocated, if you like cooking, we appreciate a turn over or help in our roles for preparing the evening meals (if you choose to share meals). Indeed we found this to be a nice experience to share new culinary ideas.

If you are willing to help for 5.5 hours per day, 5 days per week (so you have 2 days off in the weekend) we can offer you in exchange free food (breakfast, lunch and dinner), self contained accommodation and wifi.
Other arrangements are possible for example if you provide your own food then you work only 3.5 hours per day for 5 days in a week (so no work during the weekends).
If you are needing some particular days off during the week, and you prefer to work more per day but only certain day, we can also negotiate this.

Our rooms: double beds in two bedrooms on the top floor which have their own bathroom... and a superb view from the private balcony!

We can accommodate for up to 2 individual persons or 1 couple who are happy to share two rooms (with a bed each) and a bathroom between them.

No pets and non smokers preferred but we can find some arrangement if you must have a few cigarets :)

Happy to accommodate for any special diet requirements, although help and ideas in the making of those special meals will be welcome.

Happy to provide more info if you are interested to join us in this adventure.

Celine & Geoff
