We live on 17 acres and produce most of our own food through a veggie garden and have a couple of cows, sheep for our own meat, goats for milking and cheese making, ducks, chickens, turkeys, guinea fowl and two dogs. We also like to catch fish in our boat.

We have been Couch Surfing hosts, but thought HelpX would give us the cultural exchange that we enjoyed with something back for providing accommodation and meals.
Look up our reviews on CouchSurfing for recommendations.

We have some general work around the place that needs doing with main jobs being in the garden, some minor painting, cleaning and clearing around the house/land.

Our kids have moved out of home and you would have your own bedroom and bathroom upstairs. Honesty and care for my home is important to me.

I would prefer non smokers, but smoking outside only will be allowed. Prefer non fussy eaters as we make most of our food from scratch from whole foods from our own produce.

We are close to Kingscote, less than 1 km in to town. Kangaroo Island is a true natures paradise with lots of beautiful places to visit and things to do.

About 4 hours work a day seems to be what expected for accommodation and all meals. Working more some days to have others off is negotiable and recommended to be able to enjoy the beautiful places Kangaroo Island has to offer.

I would like a minimum stay of 4 days with a maximum of 12. Longer stays may be negotiable by mutual arrangement.

Please note that Kangaroo Island is about 150 km long and 50 km wide. Although we might visit some of the closer beaches as weather allows, you will probable need to either do a tour or hire a car to see some of the more remote places. I am happy to give you great food and accommodation, but cannot be your tour guide. Having your own vehicle gives you the best flexibility.

Please contact me through the HelpX site by email initially.
