We are looking for self-contained accommodation. We would consider a large room in a share house with our own bathroom in a situation where we have enough living space so we can maintain some separation. At home we have hosted travellers from all over the world so are used to sharing our living space with people of all ages and backgrounds, but right now as much as we would love to be a part of a household we are spending a lot of time with elderly relatives and friends while we are in Melbourne so need a situation where we can maintain social distance if required. We will be in Melbourne until April, possibly longer so looking for a place for 6 months or more. We are happy to trade gardening or other skills for some of the rent in the right situation and are experienced gardeners and house/pet sitters with a background in organic farming and can provide references and police checks. While we often have access to a vehicle, we don't have our own car, so looking for places close to Eastern Fwy or Bushy Creek bike paths or somewhere close to the Box Hill train line. Our ideal location is in Mont Albert North/Balwyn East in the area bordered by Union Rd, Elgar Rd, Greythorn Rd and Strabane Ave. We are in our late 50s. Jeff is an amateur photographer and musician (acoustic guitar, mainly folk and alt country covers along with a few originals), recently retired from a career in land preservation. Jan is a jill of all trades with a particular focus on organic farming and gardening and cooking. We are both into bushwalking and other outdoor activities and when we are in Melbourne we volunteer at an indigenous plant nursery and for Gardens for Wildlife. Jan is doing a Permaculture Design Certificate course. Jeff practices guitar most days and sometimes plays online concerts so looking for somewhere quiet where his playing won't disturb anyone.
