We are needing a caretaker for our 10 acres - Mowing, slashing, whipper-snipping. In exchange for accommodation. An absolutely gorgeous area to live. Please contact mobile asap.

If you love beaches, then please message us.
Anytime is a great time to visit the tropics.
If you are a keen machinery bod, proficient at using mowers, brush-cutters, whipper-snippers, ride-on mower and tractor, you are welcome to show your style on our 10 acre property. We aim to return the property to its former glory so we can relinquish our dreams for it to someone else who will love and enjoy it as much as we have - it is to be listed for sale.

We have 2 properties - a high set house on a large block in town where my husband and I currently live. Here we enjoy city living with a pool.
The low set home is nestled on a 4 hectare block near beaches north of Mackay. We have several mango trees that produce magnificent fruit every summer. This property is where we lived for 18 years and raised our family. This property is near the best beaches in the area - lots of them. Wildlife and bush abound. This is where we need the most help. Especially with brushcutting and whippersnipping.

We actually like people to share what they know and love the most. eg carpentering, painting, gardening, cleaning, home decor, cooking etc.

As we both work long hours, it is good if you can work on your own through the day.

Our three sons have all grown up and left home. We are used to hosting folks, having been in the wwoofer program for years and more recently in Airbnb and Helpx. We are not able to sign for a second working holiday visa though.
We would like to travel overseas but at the moment we enjoy having overseas visitors come to us.:)

MORE info -
Helping through Helpx is not a job.
We are not able to sign for a 2nd holiday visa.
Help times will be flexible - need to fit in with hosts and helpers.
Sunday is always a day of no projects for us.
Good help means being able to contribute as much as we do.
Good help is in exchange for the great accommodation we provide.
We encourage you to provide and cook own meals so your specific eating style is catered for. We work long hours and have erratic meal times so being independent with meals is best option for all.
No smoking, no drugs and no alcohol consumption on properties pls.
We like to do projects. Before and after photos show clearly where your help has made a footprint on our tiny patch of Earth. :)

Communication is the key to an enjoyable Helpx experience for all parties and we are very approachable. Ask if you do not know or understand and if you want something clarified or confirmed. Sharing your travel experiences and your special skills is welcome. :)
