Hi there,

I have below advertised for a housemate, but in the meantime I thought I could offer the room free for 1 week in return of some gardening duties. I just can't do it all by myself and need some mowing done, weeding, fertilizing and sewing some lawn and some pool cleaning and patting my dog every now and then :) I have all the tools. I'd offer a week or so in a great house in Bayside.
I have a spare bicylce to use. Can pick up from train station. Great beachside suburb, enjoy summer at the beach while you can !
Anytime between now and around the 17-20Mar.

Anyone interested get in contact !!

Hi Juan, have you been succesfull yet ?

Beaumaris is about 25km out of the city centre, are you sure you would consider that distance ?
I have the room free until the 15th at least
