Are you happy to be VEGAN while in my home?
Are you a complete NON-SMOKER?
Are you interested in SUSTAINABILITY?

THE GOOD LIFE
You're invited to sample eco-living at Frog Palace. Home is on a north-facing block with orchard, herbs, veges and chooks (hens). Permaculture informs many of our choices; we like to live well - kindly, simply and joyfully.

GETTING PHYSICAL
Home is just a few steps from the beautiful Canning River. Borrow a kayak or bike and keep your eyes open for dolphins. Take advantage of the trampoline, treadmill, hand weights or fitball. Maybe join me for pilates/yoga (home) or swimming (Melville pool).

GETTING AROUND
It's around a 10 minute walk to Bullcreek Station, the intersection of Kwinana Freeway (north is city, south is Mandurah) and Leach Highway (west to Fremantle port and beaches). Despite this convenience, Frog Palace is protected from traffic noise in a sheltered dell. Parking space is available if you have a car or are doing up a van ready for "The Big Lap". And don't forget the bikes as a transport option; they're permitted on trains for much of the day.

AMENITIES
Your bedroom (queen) is 100% private. Bathroom and toilet are also used by visitors, so please keep them looking presentable.
We share laundry, kitchen, living and sun-room.
Washing up liquid, laundry detergent, and dishwasher powder are gratis, as is deluxe 'Who Gives a Crap" toilet paper!

STAYING CONNECTED & ENTERTAINED
There's good wifi, though not enough for streaming movies or playing games.
You may use my card to borrow from the local library, including books in your native language.
Relax with Netflix, enjoy the piano, chill in an easy chair to read or use laptop, indulge in a jigsaw ...

SWAP
2.5 hours / person / day of cleaning, gardening, odd jobs etc which can be scheduled to suit your plans for play, study, work or exploration. I might have a project that requires a 'blitz'.
The low hours reflect an expectation that you have a mature house-sharing ethic. Here we each clean up after ourselves as a matter of habit (e.g. put things away, wipe down sink, bench, basin, toilet after use) and do that little bit extra like empty a dishwasher or shake out a mat as required.

FOOD OPTION A
Completely self cater. Perhaps we could cook for each other once or twice a week.

FOOD OPTION B
5 x evening meals included for $50 pp/week. Served at 6.30pm.
