We are a family of four, with 2 daughters 4 and 1 . Renee is a nurse and Marcus is a stonemason and we have a stonemasonry business. We live in Broad Bay, 20 minutes from the city and even less time to majestic beaches and walks.
We have a basic sleepout which has a heater and is rather lovely (read, in summer) though in need of a renovation. It is situated in an overgrown garden that also needs some input (read - overhaul).
Time is sparce and we would love some help in freeing up hours for getting onto some of our little house renovations and garden. We have a lot of visitors and love that but would like to improve on what we offer them by starting work on the sleepout. Renee needs 10 hours over a week for our business administration so a bit of time in the garden with baby Véra and the odd drive/walk to Kindergarten/the beach would be sublime.
Unsure of the details until we meet but think we could provide accomodation (the mattress is great and there is a heater) and negotiate on the meals as Marcus is away a lot for work.
We have travelled and welcomed couchsurfers over the years and enjoy the company of travellers and tales. We are in the 'busy' phase that seems to steal time away from socialising but of course we enjoy a change in routines immensley and think help x is a very nice medium until we can relax into couchsurfing again in our later years: )
