We love this program and enjoy having people stay with us! We are a family of four. Arnie and I in our mid 40s, 12 yr old girl and 18month baby.

Please do not apply if you are employed in any capacity, freelance work or otherwise. We have found this to be a bit tricky managing it all.

Please do not apply if you are unwell (as we have a 18month year baby).


Thank you for your interest. We have been part of this and other program for around 5 years and we love it. We have had wonderful experiences. We are a buzzing family with lots going on in our household! Short term rental guests, film and photo shoots sometimes etc etc.

Please note that we get many people contacting us to stay in our home, and it is hard sometimes to reply to every message - we apologise in advance if you do not hear from us. We are mostly last minute takers, so feel free to message us more than once, and closer to the time you wish to stay.

Please make your emails clear:
1) dates available in first sentence
2) names and ages
3) skills
4) please include your photos in your profile

We prefer focused, healthy, clean and self-reliant guests. NO SMOKERS PLEASE.

Also, lots of great cafes+pubs close by. Mickey's around the corner do fun $10 weekly dinners too.
