Be a part of our family and share a cultural exchange. We would like our children to know it is a big, bright and beautiful world out there. We live in an inner city suburb about 15 minutes from Perth city; by the beautiful Swan River. We have 2 children (aged 11 and 14) and a cat and a dog. While it is school holidays we would like you to hang out with our children and do a few easy maintenance jobs around our home.
Babysitting / child care
We are a fun family that are active and often busy outdoors. We sail, swim, stand up paddle board, kayak, go to the dog beach, do surf life saving, surf and love visiting Kings Park. We would include you in our activities and general family life. We speak English and our children are learning French at school. Ideally we would like someone who can speak French.
The help we require is to interact with our children while we work and also to do some easy home maintenance. Our children don't need babysitting due to their age but would like some fun people to hang out with during the school holidays. Things they like doing during the holidays is to go to the beach, take a bike ride, play tennis and go to the movies. The maintenance job that requires doing is to paint the wrought iron gate and fence. All materials will be provided. We require someone with good attention to detail for this fiddley job; it isn't physically demanding.
English and limited (school based) French.
Exclusive use of a large bedroom with a queen sized bed and with its own ensuite. All meals will be provided and as the weather is lovely we will be eating lots of barbequed meals in our outdoor area. We would like a couple or 2 friends to come and stay to live with us.
We live right between Perth and Fremantle. The Claremont train station is a 15 minute walk from our house. There is a bus stop just down the road that can take you into Claremont or the city. We are a happy family that like to have a lot of fun. We like listening to music and our daughter is a keen musician. We live an a quiet suburban area by the Swan River.
