  • Description

    Description

    Our family includes two children, Layla 12 and Sahar 10, our beautiful big, gentle dog Bamba and Cosmo the cat. We live in a beautiful beachfront home in New Brighton in the Byron Shire where the kids both attend school Monday to Friday. We enjoy taking Bamba for walks on the beach, trips to the river, playing sports such as basketball, table-tennis and soccer and playing music. Originally from Israel, we now live in Australia and love to travel around in the school holidays.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You would get to enjoy an outdoor lifestyle with direct access to the beach which is also a popular surf spot. We love being close to nature which is reflected in our home which has lots of trees and outdoor space including an enclosed outdoor shower. Layla is learning guitar and ukulele and loves singing and writing songs whilst Sahar is learning to play the drums. The kids are both creative and always active, so we would love travelers to get involved and become a part of our family, joining in with activities, adventures and trips. We like to try new foods and would love to try dishes from different cultures and can share some of our own Israeli dishes too. You would also have lots of free time where you could explore the local and popular towns of Mullumbimby or Byron Bay, work and earn a bit of extra money or surf and join in with other local activities. The local area is very multi-cultural, has an excellent live music scene and is very popular with musicians, creatives and artists.

    Help

    The main thing we want is someone to be around after school with the children and to cook an evening meal. It would be good if this could include help with homework, creative projects, music practice or language practice (we love to learn about new languages and cultures!) We also appreciate some help with household chores like washing and a bit of cleaning each week and sometimes general help with small projects around the house.

    Accommodation

    Accommodation would be in your own private cabin in a beautiful secluded spot at the end of our garden and we would provide all food as well. The cabin is fully furnished with a mini-fridge too.

    Ideally we would like someone to stay long-term - Whoever stays for three months or more would get a bonus at the end of their stay which we can talk about before you start.
