  • Description


    We live in Arcadia in Sydney. It is a small farm with 1 horse and a couple of dogs. I have a pool and a lovely house.
    This is a fun, busy and hectic family. Running 2 small businesses. I have a son with a disability who goes to work every day. He is easy and has a beautiful attitude and is also great fun. He is an important part of the household and it's part of the job to enjoy his company and respect him and spend time with him.

    There is some fence painting and garden work to be done on the property currently, and some "full on" cleaning.

    Its a beautiful area to live if you like animals and the nature and still want to be just 45 minutes away from the big city! You will be largely unsupervised and have plenty of independence. However I do require someone with a drivers license, a work ethic and to stay for a minimum of 2 weeks. I am not interested in anyone who just wants to stay for a few days and then move on. There is a car available at all time and weekends are free to travel or visit the city. Own room and bathroom.

    Non smoker is a requirement - and we have internet (obviously). Im vegetarian would love someone who loves to cook.
