  • Description


    We live in Manly NSW right at Manly Beach, one of the beaches on the Northern Beaches and the closest to the CBD city. Manly Beach is just a walk down the stairs from us and you can hear the waves from your room.
    We are very active and have a sporty lifestyle of going out to the beach, surfing, paddle boarding, cycling and beach walks.

    We have two girls aged 10 and 7. They are very well behaved and have had babysitters and aupairs all the time. They love having chats, having playdates, being outdoors and at playgrounds.

    I'm looking for someone to help drop them off and pick them up from school. The times are 8- 9am and 3-6pm four days a week. You will be taking them to after school activities from 4-5pm or doing homework. All at a walking distance. Cooking and cleaning is expected.

    I work locally but casually so not guaranteed to work on some days. You will have weekdays school hours and weekends to yourself if you want to explore or work.

    We live close to the shops and have everything from banks, post office, hospital, school, shops, supermarket, and restaurants at a walking distance. Public transportation is easy to take and the city is 20 min by ferry passing the iconic Harbour Bridge and Opera House.

    In return, you will have free accommodation in one of the best suburbs on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, healthy food, unlimited WiFi, a two minute walk to the beach, and access to sports equipment ( surfboard, body-board, paddle board, bike) and even free passes to the gym! I can also drive you if free. I can pick you up from the airport if it's not during work days!

    I only have accommodation for ONE FEMALE so please no males, no couples, no smokers, and someone who can speak English well and is comfortable with cooking meat.

    You will love sunny Manly! The surf beach culture of healthy eating, active lifestyle, local cafes and international restaurants, major events/art/concerts in the city of Sydney, making friends from around the world, and learning English from interacting with our family as a family member and a friend. I have never met anyone who didn't want to stay in Manly and no one ever wants to leave!
