  • Description


    Hello Workawayers.
    We are now also looking for someone to help from May 2023 onwards. We are looking for minimum of a months stay.

    We'd love to have your company. I need help running the house and 2 kids(both boys 11 and 7) in our general day. We would like to help you learn English and teach you our culture. You will never be alone here there is someone always around to chat to and help with chores. Most of the time I cook a lot but would be great if you would cook sometimes too or at least prepare the vegetables etc and we can then cook together, Along with helps with the kids, I would also need help cleaning the house and general day to day duties. We have great atmosphere in our house We live in the countryside 3km from local town that has great social life and atmosphere within the town. We life very near beaches(Google Inchydoney and Clonakilty) where you can walk, surf or just sit and enjoy. My husband is a mechanic and does work at home sometimes. We have 2 dog who lives outside but visit inside every evening for a few hours and we got 2 cats who live outside, sometimes calls in to say hello. Thanks for taking the interest and time to read my profile. Hope to talk to you soon. Please write to me for more information if interested.
