Who we are

  1. Hi my name is Kaaren I am 44 and an Interior Designer and writer. I am also a full time mum. My husband Mark is 45 and a clay modeller for the automotive industry and works abroad from time to time. We have 4 beautiful children, Tara 12, Amber 9, Kane 7, and Ella 5. They all attend the local Rudolph Steiner school which is just down the road. Before children we travelled extensively but have spent the last years raising our family. We are caring people who value our enviroment and our community. Due to Marks contract work currently in Orange County California we are looking for flexible people who are looking to spend some time exploring the wonderful area we live in and access all the other activities on offer in Melbourne. We hope to attract families that may like to take the opportunity for an extended stay, to truly feel the warmth and hospitality of hills communities.
