The Experience

Looking for people who can help around the house and land recently bought. New house needs some finishing. Garden needs lots of work. Ocean views, mountain backyard, walk to beach and train. Very relaxed and not a strict working schedule...I just need some help.

Very good. Pick up from a train station. Easy walk to the train station. Short trails nearby, bikes available. Private room. Full kitchen access. Work is good, Rob and Diana are always willing to help best they can. Felt like friends there, very welcoming. Surf is close as well! Area is near in the bush, it's awesome!
Tips: boomerangs in Wollongong, Tim Tam slams are a must, bring organic soaps!
Have a great time, you are lucky if you are chosen.

Rob and Dianna were amazing, they always helped with anything I needed, besides they took to climb and to get my transport when I was going. The meals were incridible, made lovely.
The house is new, so it needed some repair, it may be your task, but in general it is clean and organized.
The tasks are flexibles, it depend on the need of Rob, I helped in the garden and basic carpinter sevices.
I superb reccomend this experience, you can trekking, climbing, riding bycicle, sharing ideas around a pieceful and beautiful city with special people.

Thank you Guys!

Rob is a total legend and he has a superb new hosue nestled on a hill near some beautiful coastline. He is great to work for and extremely flexible. You are required to use your own initiative to do a variety of tasks. You will learn things from these tasks if you want to. The surrounding area has hiking trails, beach access and cylcing paths. All are fantastic for getting outdoors and within 5 minutes walk. The surrounding towns are quiet and offer a fantastic beachside lifestyle. I would highly recommend Rob and this place and I would definitely go back given the opportunity.

I was at Rob's for two weeks, there is a lot to do yet! But I had plenty of time to do my own things.
It's a great place to relax and go to the beach. Very quiet, comfortable and y
I could work with a total flexible timetable.
I got on very well with Rob and we had some nice dinners and showed me cool places around like the National park!

About the host

The area has the best lifestyle. Quiet enough to get a wave to yourself but close enough to the city and bars if you need. Stay in a beautiful house with ocean views and experience a slice of paradise only an hour by train from Sydney.
