  • Accommodation


    Brick house in a good neighbourhood, newly renovated kitchen, open plan lounge, a nice little garden in the front and a spacious backyard. We're located in the heart of Dannemora/Flat Bush area, very convenient to get to places. You will have your own private bedroom, the house is north facing so we get good sunshine throughout the year. As the number of working hours required is minimal, we will not be providing meals unless the helper assisted with cooking. Please note on rare occasions if we have another paying guest staying, you may be asked to share a bedroom, you will be provided another bed.

    During time off, the helper is free to explore locally and we're happy to make recommendations. Public transport is quite convenient in our area. In the weekend if we go out, we're more than happy to take the helper with us for sightseeing etc.
