We have an architect designed renovated, wooden 3 bedroom holiday house, within walking distance of Shoreham Beach (and Honeysuckle Beach).

This beautiful, comfortable and peaceful property, set within an acre of garden and bushland has a feeling of seclusion and space.

We are looking for a responsible, trustworthy, independent couple (minimum age 26) to help with a range of jobs, including painting, varnishing, cleaning and many things related to getting the house sorted for holiday stays. We seek people with DIY & painting experience - people who can whipper snip, mow the lawn and weed the garden. We are looking for people who have energy and enthusiasm & a good eye for detail. We have some extra furniture stored on the property that needs bringing up to the house (20metres away & nothing too heavy). The right couple will be given some independence at the property as we come and go. This also means that you can also cook for yourselves and we will provide the food.

We will drive you to the house from Melbourne (75mins) and back again at the end of your stay or you can bring your own vehicle. Once on the property, you will need to walk to the beach & take a bus to the shops & other villages.

The house has a new modern kitchen, all modern facilities, BBQ, TV, comfortable beds, an open fireplace and heaters, an outdoor seating area - all of which make this a great place to stay. You will have your own bedroom with a queen size bed. There are two bathrooms and a large open plan living, dining, kitchen area.

We estimate that the jobs needed will take at least 2 weeks, possibly longer.

We built the house in 1978 and have recently renovated and made it a more comfortable & workable holiday space for family and friends. We are professional people and our energy levels allow for certain tasks and not others. We now need the last big push to complete a few remaining jobs with your help. We enjoy meeting new people and hope that you will get in touch with us.

Shoreham is situated on The Mornington Peninsula. It is a small coastal village on Westernport Bay, Victoria. It is an area of great beauty and there are many local wineries, walks, hikes, horseriding, beach access and surfing. There are also a few resident koalas around the property and beautiful birds. The nearest shops accessible by bus are at Balnarring, Red Hill and Flinders.
