Hi, we have a small farm in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland where we rent out a holiday house and have a caretaker’s cottage separate from the holiday house. This is not paid employment, rather we are looking to exchange a comfortable country cottage on the Mary River with services,  for around 20-25 hours per week for a 3-4 month period at the best time of year in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.

We seek a caretaker couple for the months of July to November 2021… ideally an active retired couple to take care of watering and weeding of the gardens, operating river tank pump to fill water tanks, a little tree pruning and hedge trimming, an amazing vegetable/fruit/herb garden, mow lawns with a quality push mower + ride on for the bigger areas (nothing onerous), launder and stack the holiday house sheets and towels, check that the cleaners have met our standards and keep an eye on things in general.  We have contracted cleaners who maintain the holiday house, so you just need you to check that they turn up on the right day, and also if there are any breakages in the holiday houses (alert us), you may need to call in a tradesman, order a gas delivery or make a small repair yourself.  You will of course need to clean and maintain your own cottage.

We have no pets to care for, though prefer a caretaker who is also pet free and smoke free.  Our holiday guests bring pets… and we can only cope with so many dogs at one time!

We would prefer that you stay in our caretakers cottage (comfortable 2 bedroom shed/house) with electricity, gas, bathroom, septic system, air conditioning, woodfire and full kitchen. We have room for you to park your RV or van if you choose to bring one. We do not have wifi, but do have good mobile reception with all the major providers except Vodafone.

Feel free to ask questions… though if you are seriously interested and available at this time, please email some information about yourselves to me with some information on your own criteria. My email is and Phone 0425 355951. Have a look at images on our website:

We are located in Kenilworth Qld 4574. Kenilworth is a vibrant village in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland… only 20 minutes from Eumundi Markets, 35 minutes from Noosa Beach and 30 minutes to Nambour.
