Hello Workawayers, we are Padma (Australian citizen), Arthur (Dutch citizen) and Zoë (born in August 2018). We moved from Amsterdam to Sydney in early 2019 and are in the process of starting our own business in the vegan food services sector. We live in Annandale (inner west), in a modern three-bedroom townhouse, looking out over Rozelle bay, next to the Glebe Foreshore Parks and less than 100 meter from the Rozelle Bay lightrail station (20 minutes to Sydney Central Station).
We are looking for an English or Dutch speaking Workawayer with babysitting experience to look after Zoë, perform household duties and do other ad-hoc jobs around the house. We would ideally like someone who would like to stay at least one month, but will consider anyone staying at least two weeks. We are vegan and therefore a vegan person would be preferred but otherwise we would welcome someone who is happy to eat vegan food only in the house.
See the calendar on this page for availability and please note that our guest bedroom will be occupied from 25 July - 20 August 2019. You can stay in our third bedroom (used as our office) for a couple of nights if your stay overlaps with the beginning or end of this period.
Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
Our house’s location in the inner western suburbs and its proximity to a light rail station and bus stops provides an excellent opportunity to explore Sydney’s museums, parks and other sights, and experience the Sydney lifestyle.
There is also the opportunity for the Workawayer to try a variety of different vegan food and learn how to cook some meals if they want.
Looking after our baby daughter, Zoë (playing with her, going for walks, feeding her, changing nappies, etc), and performing general household duties (such as vacuum cleaning, mopping the floor, cleaning the windows and bathrooms, and possibly some help in the kitchen with meal preparation). Often, one of us will be home too (working from home).
English and Dutch
You will sleep in our guest bedroom (with new, high-quality queen-size bed, airconditioning, desk and own courtyard) and have your own, modern bathroom. Breakfast and either lunch or dinner are included (all meals will be vegan).
Our house is a 100 meters away from Rozelle Bay light rail station (20-minute trip to Sydney's city center) and bus stops, making it an excellent base for exploring Sydney and its surroundings. Across the road are the Glebe Foreshore Parks, nestled against the water of Rozelle Bay. With their beautiful views of the city center these parks provide a wonderful setting for relaxing, running, etc.
