Job Description

Green Gables Warburton

The Opportunity – Start Aug / Sep 2021

The Owners of Green Gables Warburton are inviting proactive Couples (or individuals) to apply for the role of live-in caretakers of this beautiful 6 Acre estate. This is a unique opportunity for a dedicated couple willing to be hands-on with the running and maintenance of this accommodation centre.


Green Gables Warburton is a property that occasionally accommodates hotel guests, essential workers, seasonal workers, government groups, bike enthusiasts, and group retreats. Whilst the property is becoming increasingly popular in Warburton, it is still underutilised. Couples who could assist with further growth are encouraged to apply, with the view of maximising the property’s full potential. Green Gables is also perfectly suited for school camps, religious retreats and family getaways. The owners would like the caretakers to actively pursue these opportunities and would be happy to discuss renumeration rewards for these prospects.


The day-to-day duties could include; gardening, cleaning, taking bookings, basic catering (if there is a conference booking) and general building maintenance. Currently there are more guests on the weekends but this may change as the seasons change. The property will accommodate the couple in a private residence (unfurnished). The residence is similar in size to a 2 bedroom apartment. It would be suitable for a couple, but a plus one (baby or adult child) would also be considered. Experience in hospitality, tourism, campsites, marketing or catering would be well regarded but not essential.


Living expenses such as accommodation and utilities will be covered. Additional renumeration will be discussed with individual couples and will depend on experience and expected contribution to the growth of the property.

Individuals or couples who engage in part-time work (eg: home online business, or work in the immediate region) are encouraged to apply as the role does allow for regular downtime and at times requires only one person’s part-time attention.
