We'd love a friendly couple to come and give us a hand on our property. We live on a rural property in one of the premier wine regions of Australia, close to beautiful beaches and 45 minutes from the city of Adelaide.
There is some public transport to the township of McLaren Vale and to Adelaide, with a bus stop app 1 km walk away, but your own car would be best. There is a good shopping centre in McLaren Vale, which is about 3 km.The area is noted for fine food and wine and there are over 70 cellar doors, plus restaurants and a lovely weekly Farmers Market. Mobile phone reception is good and limited WiFi is available. We have a dog and a horse, so visitors will hopefully love animals.We are an older couple who love good food and wine, music, country life and equestrian sport, but due to recent surgery, we need a bit of help with gardening and odd jobs. The accommodation provided is private, with your own bathroom and sitting room, so, good for a couple, but due to health issues, definitely no smokers.
Work is mostly outside, so you need to be fairly fit but it's not demanding.Previous HelpXers have done around 4 hours a day, staying for 2 weeks, which we found worked well, so we'd like to continue with that.
There are excellent swimming beaches about 15 minutes away by car. You will need a car for extensive sightseeing, as this is a delightful area and there are lots of places to explore. We can collect you from the station or bus on arrival and we're happy to take you sightseeing, but we could not provide a daily taxi service to get around.
We do have bicycles you could borrow and the district is quite flat, so good for cycling.
