My 11year old son and I live right on the beach in Taipa, in a small cottage with a spare bedroom. I am a teacher at my son's school. Our situation suits someone who wants some peace and quiet and lots of time to walk the beaches. The work is mostly housework and maybe some cooking.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
We need help in the garden and on the land; sometimes little bits of maintenance on the house; anyone with a love of cooking is welcome to go for it in the kitchen; helping out in our local school or with children's projects; teaching us some new tricks on the computer! For us it is more about the company than the labour. Work can be very varied depending on what our guest feels drawn to.
A large and lovely bedroom right next to toilet and bathroom, quiet and private with a bush outlook and large windows. Contains one double and one single bed. Our house is 3 bedroom, two bathroom with two large living areas and open fires.
