    AVAILABLE FROM:
    15 October 2019 onwards

    =================================
    LONG TERM STAYERS PREFERRED....minimum 3-week stayers please to limit disruption to both our family routine and our kids.

    COUPLES welcome however work is limited and you work at separate times from each other. You will also sleep together on a queen size bed as don't have two single beds.

    We have been involved in Workaway since February 2015 which is why our profile is so detailed!

    =================================
    PLEASE READ OUR PROFILE CAREFULLY, and ask questions if you have any further clarification.

    You must:
    - not be a smoker
    - not have a special diet (eg. not be a vegetarian or vegan)
    - have experience with YOUNG children (aged 4 & 6 years)
    - not be allergic to cats (we have two indoor cats)
    - be proactive with the help you give us as we can't constantly tell you what needs to be done
    - read and understand all details in our profile as it contains our expectations of you in our home

    =================================

    We are a busy family of four with two gorgeous girls age 6yrs old and a 4yr old. We live in a modern air-conditioned split level townhouse that is centrally located only 7km from inner Sydney's main business/shopping district (CBD) with direct public transport on our doorstep.

    We are both very busy professionals. Daniel owns his own business near Sydney CBD plus has a job near home while I (Helen) currently work long hours in digital marketing. While work is important to us, family time is even more important. That's where you come in.

    As a workawayer, you will be making our life easier so we get to spend quality time with the kids and not stress about maintaining this home. We love to go exploring Sydney as a family and spend time outdoors - at beaches, national parks and we go camping over the summer months (which you're welcome to join us). We also like a wide range of foods and I have my own recipe blog as I love to cook... but I'm also happy if someone wants to take over the kItchen and cook for us!

    Our oldest is in school, our youngest is in childcare (preschool) 2 days a week.

    Both children have no disabilities and are not allergic to anything.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a family that loves diversity and different cultures. Share with us your culture and even speak to the kids in your native language... and we'll share with you a bit of our Czech, Italian, New Zealand and Australian hospitality.

    I also can teach those eager to learn some tasty recipes!

  • Help

    Help

    The help is light - babysitting, pick up and drop off to childcare/school, help around the house (eg. housework, cooking, cleaning, washing, etc), gardening, home renovations and some physical help around the home. We will guide you on things required however on a daily basis, this is the bare minimum to do - empty dishwasher, hang/fold washing, clean cat litter, tidying up kids toys, and vaccuming.

    We are flexible enough with any workawayer to give numerous days off to explore greater NSW.

    The school is a 10-15min walk away from home. The childcare centre is a 5min walk away from the school. Car driving licence is not required and you won't need to drive our cars.

    NOTE:
    Doing dishes and clean up after breakfast and dinner are not included in your hours. This is what we would expect ANY guest staying with us in our busy family to do. You would also do this if you stayed in a hostel/backpackers. If you don't like this, don't apply to stay with us.

    What else ...

    Sydney is GORGEOUS! We encourage all workawayers staying with us to spend as much time investigating all that Sydney has to offer.

    On your days off, you are welcome to join our family activities (eg. Nippers surf lifesaving, camping, visiting beaches and national parks).

    TRANSPORTATION:
    The Sydney CDB is only 7km away which you can walk or take direct public transport there. The 438 and 439 bus goes past our home with a bus stop close to our house - this takes you into the city. Going the other way, the 438 takes you to the ferry at Abbotsford wharf.
