I really enjoyed my stay here! I stayed 3 weeks with Sharla and her lovely children while Peter was working overseas. We had a lot of fun and adventures.
My job was to keep the house clean and entertain the kids. Elitiger and Lilygrace are very cute and you will not get bored with them! :) I love Sharlas sweet potatoes and the bananabred!
I really enjoyed my stay and I already miss my like little Aussie family!

My husband and I stayed at Sharla and Peter's house for 6 weeks and absolutely loved our stay. We felt right at home and were always comfortable. Sharla is an amazing cook and it was fun sharing different recipes together.

My main job was watching the kids and keeping the house clean and I found that the exchange was always fair- and fun! The children are adorable and every day I looked forward to my time with them. I miss them dearly now! The work hours were perfect, ensuring we had play time during the day before watching the kids.

Having a drivers license is recommended as a car is the only way to get around. They let us use their Volvo during our free time which was so handy for weekend trips and beach days during the week.

If you aren't from Australia and are looking for an authentic Aussie stay- this is your place!

I have worked two weeks for Sharla. It was a really good time with her and the two kids. She ask you only to do easy job like vaccum, mob, tidy, wipe...just to help with the housekeeping. I have feed the chickens. And take care of the two childrens, on the evening dôme Times I read a book to the oldest kids. Somedays she can drop you in Noosa.
Thank's Sharla for the two weeks
