    Hi there and welcome to Brisbane. We love traveling and welcome people from different backgrounds to experience sunny Brisbane. We are a married cple with 3 kids aged 10-13 and a dog. We are quite a busy active family and like to follow a healthy lifestyle and are always doing something. We would especially love someone who can speak Mandarin to help our two girls. Anyone who is good with painting is also a good thing 😀

    We live in a lovely area called Brighton which is 15 mins walk to the sea. There are lots of cafes and the foreshore is a lovely recreation area where lots of people come to visit. We welcome people from different nationalities I myself have relatives living all over the globe. We are originally from the UK but moved to Oz in 2001. We look forward to meeting you.

    Hi everyone, we are looking for someone who can speak Mandarin as our two girls are learning it. With Mandarin we would like you to engage them in conversations or when you speak to them to speak in Mandarin to help them understand and speak Mandarin. We would also like you to listen to them read and help them with their writing and stroke order.

    We would also like some help around the house with household chores.

    I am also painting at the moment so would love help with that.

    Thanks for looking and we look forward to hearing from you.

  • Accommodation


    We have a multi level home. Living areas are upstairs our bedroom and kids lego/music room is downstairs and the other bedrooms and living room are on the front level. We have a pool in back garden. You would have your own room with a queen bed so we can take a single or a couple but would share a bathroom and the living areas.

    You can walk to the foreshore, library & local shops or there is a bus/train to the city, shopping centres etc. On the foreshore there is a pool, numerous cafes and icecream shops, surf connect who run water sports as well as a couple of parks.
    We have a spare bicycle. Just about everywhere I go is in cycling distance so this is my main mode of transportation.
