  • Description


    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 13 and 16) and a cat and a dog. While it is school holidays we would like you to hang out with our children do a few easy jobs around our home and help with cooking evening meals.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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; our son is also learning Indonesian at school. Ideally we would like someone who can speak French.

  • Help


    The help we require is to interact with our children while we work during the school holidays. Our children don't need babysitting due to their age but would like some fun people to hang out with. Things they like doing during the holidays is to go to the beach, take a bike ride, play tennis and basketball and go to the movies. The maintenance jobs are small jobs around the house and garden. It would be great to have some meals cooked for when we come home.

  • Accommodation


    We live in Perth, Western Australia. With the current quarantine laws due to COVID-19, it's probably easier (and cheaper) if you are already in Western Australia. 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 are happy for a couple or 2 friends to come and stay to live with us.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    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 so if you can play guitar - that would be a bonus as she would love to learn that instrument next. We live an a quiet suburban area by the Swan River. You are welcome to use our push bikes (bicycles) in your free time.
