Room available from approximately April 19th.

We have a comfortable 4 bedroom home and would love to host a helper or 2.

Our household consists of myself (Jeanie), my girlfriend (Jo) and our son Corbin (14). Please note we are a lesbian couple. If that makes you uncomfortable this home isn't for you.

We also have 2 cats and 2 dogs.

We are looking for someone willing to help with some cooking and general cleaning e.g. vacuum, mop, dishes, tidying and some dinner meals (when you message please let us know 3 meals you can make). As we recently moved in would also like help unpacking a little.

It is important that once you are shown how to do something e.g. use dishwasher, washing machine or dryer that you can then use it without supervision and further instructions. It is also important that you have experience cleaning your own house and know how to clean up after yourself.

Days and times you help are somewhat flexible.

It is expected you cook dinner 4 days of the week, and tidy up after dinner every night.

The day you come to stay you are expected to do 3 hours work.
We provide lodgings and meals for 21 hours per week (or 4 hours per day if staying less than a week), per person.

When doing chores they are to be done in a solid block of time.

We ask when doing chores you mark them as completed on an app we use. This helps us log how much time has been spent and keeps things fair for both you and I.

There will be no babysitting or care requirements.

With knowledge of most if not all of Australia due to our own travelling we can help others in planning and experiencing the best Australia has to offer.

We love cooking, sharing a good meal and are perfectly willing to discuss and try to cater to your dietary needs.

We have cooked for the following: vegetarian, vegan, diabetic, halal, gluten free.

Jo is aboriginal, Torres straight islander and among the meals we frequently do are Kangaroo and Barramundi.

We don't smoke, however you are welcome to smoke outside. Alcohol is fine just not in excess.

Dinner is a family meal all together, breakfast and lunch you help yourself from our pantry and fridge. We always have fruit so help yourself!

Weekend breakfasts are cooked and a family meal.
Anything from full English breakfast, miso soup with fish and rice to fluffy pancakes/waffles with fruit and maple syrup - we mix it up!!

The bedroom has 2 single beds (We will provide towels and linen/ bedding).
You will have access to laundry facilities.
The bathroom is shared.

As we are reasonably close to Melbourne there are plenty of public transport options.

Would love to discuss your stay further.

LGBTQI+ Friendly!
