    Description

    We are a fun energetic multiracial (Australian, Malaysian Indian, Papua new Guinean) and multicultural family of 6 which includes my husband and I, our daughter who is in college, our 2 boys age 14 and our youngest daughter age 4.
    My husband and I travel overseas very often as our business is in Papua New Guinea and we need a couple (male/female) to look after our children, and attend to our household needs.
    You will definitely enjoy our fun and exciting family lifestyle where two days are never the same!
    Our property is a riverfront ( Brisbane River) residence with river frontage and its own pontoon jetty, with tennis court and large pool in family-friendly suburb of Chelmer.

    Accommodation

    You will be staying in a cabana (granny flat) type accommodation overlooking the river that is fully equipped with a TV, free internet, lounge, large stainless steel outdoor kitchen, butler’s pantry plus loft bedroom and en-suite. You may do your own cooking but I suggest that join us for meals. Most of the time I cook if I'm not travelling or busy. But if you prefer to do your own cooking, you are most welcome to do that as well.
    You will have your own privacy.
