We are a professional couple looking for one or two helpers for the forthcoming school holidays - April 5 to April 21 (or possibly an extra week). Ours is a historical beach-side property on the rugged Phillip Island. Tiziana is a language teacher and Charles is an artist and educator in Landscape Architecture.
We are hoping to find someone with building / carpentry experience who will be able to work independently -someone who can install a window in the wooden cottage as well as do some maintenance jobs such as sanding, painting, revarnishing, window cleaning, gutter cleaning, etc. Please do no apply if you do not have this skill set.
There are 3 dwellings on the property, the renovated chicory kiln (which has received a lot of press), the guesthouse (you can see the pic of the room for our helper(s)), and a settlerís cottage which Tiziana uses as her textiles studio. Itís only 1.25 acres but there is a lot to do.
Accommodation will be in the guest house. There are 2 comfortable bedrooms there. We would prefer to host either a couple or a pair of friends so that you won't feel lonely. There is a spacious bathroom, separate toilet and laundry. Sheets and towels, blankets, pillows, etc. will be provided.
All meals will be provided in exchange for 5 hours work per day, 5 days a week. (Days off will probably be week days.)
We have a full internet connection.
This is a great place for nature and water lovers. The beach is less than a ten minute walk away.
YOu can see the guest house to the right of the converted chicory smoking kiln in the picture and the bedroom for the helper. We love our local beach!
