  • Description


    Hi we are a family of 4! My husband is FIFO worker so is away for 9 days and home for 5 days. In the current covid situation my hubby is working from home week on week off! I’m a stay at home mother in a massive 7 bedroom house and a little granny flat on the side on a 3 acre block of land in the rainforest in a place called speewah. 5 mins from Kuranda 20 mins from cairns. There is plenty to look after here it’s hard to do it all on my own especially juggling a 9 month old and a 3.5 yr old. My family also runs a lime farm in Mareeba 20mins from my house but it’s the off season at the moment! I am looking for somebody who has had experience in looking after babies and kindy age kids and who isn’t afraid to step in and give me a helping hand with yard work eg gardens, house chores and supervising kids and playing games! Offering free accommodation and some meals, also we can do online grocery delivery here in speewah! we are very cruisy and chilled here and are isolating ourselves in this covid situation so you would be expected to do the same. If you do come and stay with us you will have a granny flat to stay in and be asked to isolate yourself from us for 2 weeks before interacting fully with the family! It would be an advantage to have your own car. But not essential. We also have 2 beautiful dogs and ducks and chickens to play with and feed.
