I live with my 10 year old son on a 5 acre property just outside Margate. We have a large dam, and pastured paddocks where four alpacas roam. We also have 2 cats. It's a beautiful place, very quiet and private.

The accommodation is adjoined to the main shed near our house and is self-contained with queen size bed (and couch/sofa bed). It has basic kitchen facilities, and more can be added depending on the needs of the occupant.

I require help with maintaining and tidying the property (including some handy work around the house), and house cleaning. In particular my front fence needs replacing with vegetation removed. A vegetable garden is under construction, but as I don't have a green thumb I'm happy for helpers to be creative!

I have a well equipped workshop in the shed and would be happy for helpers to use the facilities for their own projects. It all belonged to my late husband who liked making wooden toys. There is everything from a lathe, drill press, circular saw, all hand tools and many besides. I also have all gardening power tools imaginable.

I have wi fi available although I don't think it reaches the accommodation. Happy to share house facilities.

We are about 1.5 km from Margate shops, so a car would be handy but not essential.

I work almost full time for the Antarctic Division involved in modernisation projects. I have a passion for Antarctica and would be happy to share my knowledge!
