Helpx help required from 8th August
Have had Helpx cancel at last minute. :-(

We are looking for someone to join us in August for three weeks as a minimum, but preferably for a month or two or more...

Contact by email only please. Sorry no couples (no room).We can only reply to people if in your profile you include your skills, hobbies, and photo!

We are a family of four, lucky to be living in beautiful Noosa on the Sunshine Coast. We are a relaxed, happy, easy-going and friendly married couple kept very busy with our 4 year old identical twin girls. We also work part-time as well as running our AirBnB properties.

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, hanging out laundry, maybe mowing lawns, light gardening and planting (e.g. flower beds, veggie patch), maybe painting, or oiling decking.

[Note - last year we sold our cruising restaurant boat, which was mentioned in some of our HelpX reviews, replacing it with another AirBnB property]

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.

SORRY ROOM FOR ONE PERSON ONLY - NO FRIENDS, NO COUPLES. As even if you're sharing a room, we don't have enough extra living space for an extra body, sorry. No vegetarians either (too hard, sorry!).

Contact by email only please - preferably with a little information about yourself and your travel plans, not just a link to your Profile (often too brief).

We look forward to hearing from you - and to welcoming you to our place in paradise!
