Looking for someone to join us for two weeks, or a month, or more.....
Contact by email only please.
We are a family of four, lucky to be living in beautiful Noosa on the Sunshine Coast. We are relaxed, happy, easy-going and friendly but kept very busy with our 4 year old identical twin girls, working and also running our 2 Air BnB accommodation.
We live in a lovely quiet area (a cul-de-sac with no through traffic). Our house and large pool back on to a koala conservation area - a quiet, natural forest setting. Other than the visiting kangaroos, it's very private with no over-looking neighbours. Peaceful and relaxing round the pool...
You'll have your own huge room with a queen-sized bed and large flat screen TV/media player, en suite bathroom with double bath and shower (no more sleeping in the back of a car or sharing a 10 bed dorm with a noisy person on the top bunk!). You'll have use of wireless internet, the large swimming pool (and poolside hammock), mountain bikes and kayaks too.
Why not have a bit of luxury to break up your travels?!
There is off-road parking, if you have your own transport. If you don't, we are always out and about and are happy to give you a lift.
The beach is about 10 minutes drive away (plenty of buses). The Sunshine Coast is one of Australia's top tourist destinations where you will experience a laid-back lifestyle, pristine beaches, freshwater rivers and lakes (hugely popular with surfers, kite-surfers and stand-up paddlers), subtropical forests (great for hiking or mountain-biking) and warm sunshine - even in winter! Or drive up to the cool and creative hinterland villages for more hikes, waterfalls and lakes.
The bus stop is about 10 minutes walk away, or a 5 minute bike ride.
We can give you all the local information you need on great markets, live music, the best beaches and other locals' secrets!
In exchange for your private room in awesome accommodation plus board (three meals a day: self-serve breakfast and lunch and joining the family dinner each evening), you would help out with such things as: house work/cleaning, maybe helping cook dinner, cleaning cars, laundry, mowing lawns, light gardening and planting (e.g. flower beds, veggie patch), maybe painting, or oiling decking.
We have just bought a second apartment and will be using it for Airbnb etc so need help, with cleaning, maybe painting, setting it up etc
Note - we have just sold our cruising restaurant boat, which was mention in some of our HelpX reviews.
In exchange for room and board, we ask for 5 hours help a day for 5 days, with the weekends off. We can be flexible with days off, hours etc. Minimum stay of 2 weeks.
If you're the right fit for our family, then why not stay longer? Maybe even do some extra hours if you want eg babysitting if we have a "date night" or extra jobs on top of your HelpX hours and earn some pocket money? We've had helpers stay up to 6 months...
We can collect you from the bus station at Tewantin or Noosa...easy!
Come and experience a bit of luxury during your trip, in one of the most beautiful spots in Australia.
