A shout out for caretakers/house sharers for large owner built home and garden in the beautiful Otways. This opportunity would best suit the self-sufficient enthusiasts, maker of things big and small, permaculture lover, writers, artists, environmentalists, handy people, and anyone who wants to live and feel more connected to nature. The property is located adjoining national parks and is quite isolated, 1 hour from Colac and Apollo Bay in a peaceful quiet bush setting. A desire to embrace an alternative lifestyle required; whilst this place would be perfect space to get your creative juices flowing and into action. There would be general upkeep of house, lawns to mow, garden to maintain, wood to chop, fires to light. An ability to use a chainsaw is essential. A large very productive vegetable garden to enjoy and maintain. Ample opportunity to grow extra to sell at local markets; as well as to preserve, ferment and create your own sauces and jams. A sweet natured dog and friendly chooks to care for who will follow you around the garden and love a chat. You would need to be quite fit and healthy with your own income or be self-employed. This is a MUST as there is limited employment in the district. Looking for handy, competent, trustworthy, open-minded, happy, person/s to stay long term +12 months – couples, singles, friends, etc. Bills to be shared and minimal rent - all negotiable for the right people. Feel free to get in contact telling a little bit about yourself and ask any questions. Please no timewasters, deadbeats or homophobes, as life is too short.
