We have a lovely block of land on the outskirts of Melbourne, which is situated on a quiet country road. Our is house nestled beside a bush reserve where we can see many beautiful gum trees and enjoy the sounds of native birds all day long. We also have a resident kangaroo named Graham and the occasional echidna wandering through the yard. It is very peaceful place to stay. Peter and I are in our fifties and have 3 grown boys who are no longer at home. I work part time and Peter works full time. We have a very large garden so much of the work required by helpers will be in the garden. It is important to be fit as there will be some moderately heavy work (mainly with a barrow). We also require help around the house to clean windows and do general cleaning inside and out. We have 2 spare rooms with double beds. The bathroom will be shared. During leisure time it is nice to sit in the garden and read or go for a walk through the quiet tree lined streets. We are close to a local bus stop, which takes you to the nearest train station. We are happy to drive you to and from the train station. We require help with cleaning and gardening activities as well as a small indoor painting task and cleaning and sealing the deck during November or early December. Meals, bed and facilities will be provided in return for 4 hours work per day. Each evening meal will be home cooked with fresh produce from our vegetable garden. I cater for gluten intolerance and vegetarians. We look forward to hosting overseas visitors as we have spent some time living overseas in England, America and China.
