  • Description


    We would love to host a female long term, 6 months or more if possible, but we would consider shorter stays also.

    We are looking for someone to help with cleaning and on occasion to look after our 3 children, Isabelle aged 9 and Gabriella aged 5 and our son Ashton who is 16 months old. We have recently moved house and now live in a little town called Mullagh. There are pubs, shops and a lake nearby and fabulous nature walks. We live on a small housing estate where the children play outside most of the day. Isabelle is well behaved and loves being outside, she loves creative play and arts and crafts she is very chatty and adventurous. Gabriella is very quiet and takes her time getting to know someone, Gabriella is very well behaved. Ashton is a good sleeper. He warms up to people quickly and is very funny, all 3 children have a great sense of humour and always try to make each other laugh. Our house is a very quiet considering there are 3 young children in the house.
    As expected it gets messy and the laundry is a constant battle.
    We are all fun loving and easy going. As my husband is away all week in collage and working when he comes home I love to chill out and have my own time.

    Both Isabelle and Gabriella are home schooled and we absolutely love it, if your coming to learn English it would be a good opportunity to learn as the children learn. We would love someone to come stay with us that love children and are compassionate, loving, kind and love spending time with the children.

    We would love to exchange culture's and try foods from other countries. Isabelle loves food and will try anything. Gabriella is a little fussy when it comes to food and is not as adventurous as Isabelle, Gabriella is also extremely allergic to nuts so you would have to be careful and also learn how to use an EpiPen.
    My husband ben is in full time university so he won't be at home during weekdays so I could use all the help I can get. I would love for my children to learn another language so if you can teach them it would be great.

    During your stay with us we want you to consider our home as your home, help yourself to the food when you want, there is no restrictions at all, if you fancy a glass of wine we would prefer for you to purchase your own alcohol. We are very flexible with the days you can work and you can swap and change as needed with the exception of Saturdays, as I work on Saturdays I will need child care for that day.
