-Please read the entire profile to ensure you match what we need. We prefer single female travelers, non smokers who are dynamic, pro-active, health minded and who love children. We prefer to host ONE person at a time-

We are currently looking to host an amazing helper!!!


We live in a cottage in an eco village in Currumbin Valley on the Gold Coast. We are surrounded by a lot of beautiful nature, walking tracks in the forest and lots of wild kangaroos in our backyard. We are on about 1 acre of land and we are setting up a vege garden. We have a guest room with en-suite bathroom (with shower and toilet). There is no public transport next to us but if you need to go to town we can give you a lift or organise it somehow. The beach is 10-15 minutes drive from us and Byron Bay area is 40 minutes away. Surfers Paradise is 30 minutes by car. You might like to read about Currumbin Eco Village on the internet. It is one of the top environmental developments in Australia.


We seek a female helper who is really great with children, good with helping run a household and handy with the garden type of work. We have two daughters who are 5 year old and 7 months old.

It would be ideal if you have experience with children. All people who have experience or just very natural with children are welcome. Please tell us what kind of experience you had with children (younger siblings, cousins etc, babysitting etc).

In addition, are you someone who has experience to be able to clean and help organize household (you know how a vacuum machine works, how to clean out a fridge, clean windows and how to look water a small garden).

We are really open to international guests. We don't mind if your English is not fluent. In fact, we even prefer that you speak your native language to our daughters so that they are exposed to more cultures and languages.


My husband is from Ukraine and I am from Russia. We have both traveled extensively and love meeting interesting people. We are passionate about healthy lifestyle, vegetarian food, sustainable living, environment natural/gentle and aware parenting. We are interested in natural health and healing, sustainability and personal responsibility and growth. We would love it if you have similar interests. We treat our helpers as part of family and we like you to spend time with us.


We are looking for big hearted and hands-on people who enjoys the dynamic family life and who enjoys to help with the practical things around the house and garden.

We love people who are pro active who go through life with a smile and open heart. You must be a non smoker. We do not eat meat products in our house so if you are into plant-based diets you will love staying with us. You are welcome to use the stove or the oven, however you need to return the kitchen setup the way it was after you are done. We have a good quality blender as well.

Over several HelpX experiences I have found that it is hard to coordinate mealtimes and food preferences therefore the rules are that you are welcome use the kitchen, you will have access to your own small fridge, and if you wish to have any fresh organic fruits and vegetables from our fridge, please ask to ensurenthat it is not part of a meal for the little ones. Also, we do not own a microwave.


We would love for you to contact us if you are interested. Please let us know a little about yourself and why you would be interested to join us in our home. You can tell us what things you are passionate about, what you are good at and what you enjoy doing. And of course about your experience with children. Please also specify your availability and how you will be getting to the coast. Please start your introduction with the code word "wonder-full" then I know you have read my entire profile and are not spamming us :)) . Us hosts can see how many emails a helper sends and how many characters so we know if you have spammed us and other hosts with a generic mass mail. We want people who are genuinely interested in OUR profile and what we stand for. Also those who have an attention to detail and can take instructions! :)

We will give it a two days trial to ensure we are all compatible and happy. We want people to feel part of our family!
