We love Darwin!
We are a family of 5, with 3 boys (12, 10, 7yrs) and a spaniel dog called Cossi. We live in a large, stylish elevated tropical home in the beachside suburb of Rapid Creek.
Rapid Creek is a great suburb with the foreshore just around the corner. We are very close to “The Beachfront”, our local pub, Nightcliff public pool, free tennis courts, bike paths, weekend markets, cafes and bars.
There is a bus stop close by. If you have a car, parking is on the street. Easy biking.
What we can offer you:
We have a self contained flat downstairs (we live upstairs). You will have your own private, open air ensuite, simple kitchen with fridge, double bed with good linen and fan.
Non-smokers only. Best for couples or a single traveler.
The flat opens out onto our beautiful pool. You are very welcome to use and enjoy the pool.
We will show you around as we can. We will share our local tips and suggestions to help you explore and enjoy this town as much as possible.
It’s best if you make your own meal arrangements as we have a busy life between work, evening sport and other commitments. We’re keen to learn about you and your travels so most likely we’ll invite you to join us for dinner. We’ll provide some starter items like milk, tea, coffee, breakfast items and some bread. There is a large chain supermarket close by, as well as corner stores and an organic food market.
The type of help we need:
We would expect 3 hours a day (hours are negotiable and you can double up to get a day off upon negotiation).
We will use a “HelpX Book” to communicate jobs and you can let us know what you get done or if you need anything.
We have an established tropical garden but have started an ambitious gardening project. We need some help gardening, landscaping and tidying. If you have any particular skills (stonework, pizza oven making, carpentry, let us know!
Tropical living means we always need help cleaning louvres and fans, as well as non-tropical living things like cupboard tidying.
Cossi, the dog, would enjoy whatever attention you’d like to give her.
The length of stay is negotiable but we suggest 7 days. Let us know your plans.
Please have travel insurance.
We're looking for help in August 2019.
