About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

Hello! Thanks for reading my information and I hope you have a wonderful stay if you choose to come to the Sunshine Coast! I live on the picturesque Sunshine Coast in Queensland. I have a 4 bedroom home with a pool in a suburban street. I can accommodate 2 people to stay at a time, either singles or a couple, singles would each have their own bedroom and share a bathroom. I work full time as a teacher and so I need volunteers to be reliable and self motivated as I am at work 5 days a week. The beach is a 2 minute walk from the house and a short 10 minute walk to the river. There is a large shopping centre about 15-20 minutes walk away. I need someone to do general housework and dinner preparation (I'm not a good cook!) as well as house maintenance and gardening. I will supply all of the food for meals and can negotiate buying food that you like to eat. I have 2 small dogs that live inside/outside and they are very affectionate. My home is drug free and also non-smoking. My daughters come home to stay sometimes, but have their own room. I am happy to help out with English language learning and engaging in conversation. Best wishes for your travels wherever you go.

I am a mother of 3 adult children, they all live out of home and visit regularly. I work full time as a Primary teacher. In my spare time I like to read, go for walks on the beach or bike path and go out with friends for coffee at cafes. I am also learning guitar and am in a choir. I am a quiet person and love to listen and learn about other people and their cultures. I used to work in the Northern Territory on a remote AboriginaI community which was fascinating and I have visited Europe, America, Canada and parts of Asia several times.

Part of the help I need is for the evening meal to be cooked, I will help out when I can, but cooking is not a strength of mine unfortunately! (I will supply all of the food, and try to buy things that you enjoy eating). We can share our evening meal together.
