Our property is located in dairy farming country on a hillside that overlooks Wilson's Promontory National Park. The closest village is Fish Creek - a 10 minute car ride. We can meet you at the bus in Fish Creek. We have a large garden and require help with landscaping and gardening as well as house maintenance. If you have a car, we are 15 minutes drive from fabulous beaches and hiking country. We sometimes have a separate loft available, above the carport and removed from the main house for occasional visitor accommodation giving visitors more privacy. Rosemary is a Dutch speaker with an understanding of French so welcomes Dutch and French helpers in particular although all nationalities welcome but smokers discouraged. Roger is a retired academic (mathematician) and Rosemary is a retired university exchange program manager. We value meeting enthusiastic, energetic helpers who like to share their stories and experience around the dinner table. The best helpers for us are those who are not clock watchers but are prepared to get a job done. Good workers who can go with the flow and work when the weather is good, will be rewarded generously. The garden awaits lots of care in preparation for the Winter - weeding, landscaping a water garden. Experience in gardening, house painting or cleaning is valuable. Smoking only outside. The beaches and coastline await your exploration not to mention the little towns with coffee shops and galleries. Below you see the following 1. Roger and Rosemary. 2. View over surrounding hills, 3. Main house from patio entrance 4. House buildings from dam below. 4. Coastline on Darby River walk at the Prom. 5. Loft above the carport.
