5 star Helpx in return for 5 star help.Our Balinese style 3 bedroom home has private access to Bradleys Beach on the beautiful car free island of Dangar Island, 1 hour north of Sydney on the Hawksbury River. The property was previously an exclusive holiday hideaway, now a private home. The island is a short ferry ride from Brooklyn (Hawksbury River railway Station) and the owners also have their own boat for transport. The island offers lovely walks, peace and quiet apart from the extensive birdlife, a café/general store overlooking the river and a fully licensed Bowling Club serving meals open Thursday to Sunday. The retired owners offer 1 or 2 supersize bedrooms (see photo) with private bathroom, all meals and unlimited WiFi in return for 4-5hours assistance daily with painting,garden, pool and house maintenance and some housework. Short term stays (up to 2 weeks) preferred. Peter is a trained teacher of English as a second language and we enjoy helping visitors with their English.
Animal lovers only as we have 2 dogs and 2 cats. No smoking please. Our Helpers enjoy the experience of visiting the island and our comfortable home, and experiencing the River lifestyle. Couples and mature travelers especially welcome. References essential. We take helpers for an average of a week in each month and we get a lot of applications, so don't be disappointed if we say no!
