  • Description


    We are a family of 2 women and 2 children. Our kids are aged 14 and 16 and we all enjoy having people come to stay.

    Rachel works full time in the public service and Amy works part time coordinating a toy library in the inner city. Both kids are at school 5 days a week and in their spare time they enjoy reading, playing on the computer, friends and cooking.
    We don't eat meat other than fish and seafood and we like to cook healthy meals.

    Our house is only about 8kms from the city centre and we are very close to public transport. The tram that runs past our house travels through fitzroy to the city.

  • Help


    We have a bedroom and bathroom that is separate from the house in our back garden.

    We sometimes need some help gardening and cleaning. We would not expect more than a few of hours a day help and you would be free to go off and explore Melbourne or relax here at home the rest of the time. We live near good cafes and are very close to the Merri Creek.

    We need people who are self motivated and are not afraid of messy work, especially cleaning, gardening and painting. Please note, we usually do not need people to cook for us or look after the kids.
