A newly renovated self contained studio amongst the gum trees and have even had koalas living in them.

Fancy a soak? Well, you can take your pick between the shower or a full deep relaxing bathtub overlooking the forest. No sharing with kids.

Your room will be located on the lower floor on our house. We are all located upstairs. You have a separate entry to your studio, so you can come and go as you please without disturbing anyone.

Great pocket money $230 - $250 per week.
Extra paid babysitting jobs with friends if you want extra money (no pressure)
Travel experiences. I am in Byron Bay a lot for work so go there often and will need to stay for a few days at times. Also both of our parents live on farms / acreage so if you like horses, cows and want to see the country we will also have access to this.
We will try and sort our schedules so that you have some time off for travel too.
