Looking for a female to help maintain the 2 acre bush garden - $20 a week off the rent for every hour spent watering etc in the yard. Suit wildlife lover, gardener, artist or anyone who likes nature. Short or long term, minimum one week.
Freshly painted private and secure furnished room in a simple country bungalow sharehouse on 2 acres of healing tall forest bushland in Glenwood, a leafy housing estate in the Cooloola Coast hinterland 1/2 an hour up the Bruce from Gympie.
Wake up to red-necked wallabies, king parrots and a multitude of birds in the morning, and listen to tree frogs, boobook owls, brush-tailed possums and yellow-bellied gliders at night.
Clean, freshly-painted newish house with insulation and ceiling fans. Own lockable bedroom (can be airconditioned if wanted) and share facilities, including studio/art space. Plenty of space for a vegie garden; not fenced for kids/pets but something could be arranged.
Private bushwalk within the grounds; ideal central location for Sunshine, Cooloola and Fraser Coasts. An hour’s drive to Great Sandy National Park, Rainbow Beach and Fraser Island through state forest (dirt road).
Five minutes to Glenwood shopping centre (shop, cafe, servo, pharmacy, hairdresser), quarter of an hour's drive to the nearest small town (Gunalda – post office, pub), half an hour north of Gympie or south of Tiaro, and three-quarters of an hour west of Tin Can Bay. Two hours to Hervey Bay whales or the Burnett Downs. Two to three hours open road to Brissie.
Small nicely furnished room with double bed (new mattress) and forest views available (pictured), or unfurnished single room, share basic but clean kitchen, bathroom, toilet and laundry (tank water). Easy-going, non-smoking household.
There's a twice daily bus service to Gympie/Brisbane/ Tiaro/Maryborough/Hervey Bay, with half an hour's walk to the bus stop. School bus to nearby Glenwood State School stops 5 minutes walk up the road. Otherwise no public transport but use of a share car is available.
Broadband (Telstra 3G) and shed storage available. A spare bedroom is currently available for your visitors/kids.
Would suit a non-smoker who likes a peaceful abode set in nature and is okay with taking care of the house and yard.
Share part time with owner, 60 year old quiet male arts professional (photographer). I work away about half the time (3 months at a time sometimes) and also have a property out west. So you'd have the house to yourself most of the time.
Knocking $20 a week off the rent for each hour spent on light caretaking duties on the 2 acres, such as watering, occasional whipper-snipping (battery electric), collecting mail from Gunalda etc.
I'm friendly, cheery and happy to help, but keep to myself.
Phone or message if this would suit you,
