  • Description


    Hi. My wife and I met whilst travelling in Australia and spent over 2 years in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and South East Asia. We love meeting new people from all over the world. We have 2 children 7 & 9 and lead a very busy lifestyle. We like to travel as much as possible so we are looking for people to come help us around the house doing housekeeping or house sitting while we are away and also helping with the children babysitting etc. My daughter has a pony (its 12.2 so may be too small to ride) but we may need help at the yard at the weekends. I do a lot of diy so if you have those skills it would be great if you could help out doing that kind of work.

    We live in Torbay, one of the most beautiful places in the UK. we are a 10 minute walk from Abbey Sands beach and a 20 minute drive to Dartmoor. Our children go to school in Dartmoor so we can take you there any day you want. Torbay is a very typical seaside resort that has lots to offer people of all ages.
