    Important; due to Covid restrictions in Australia you have to currently be in the country to apply.

    We are an Australian-Icelandic family in St Andrews Beach on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula close to both front beach and back beach surf.. Around the area there are plenty of things to do including trail riding on the beach, wineries, bush walks, snorkelling, surfing, swimming with dolphins and so on..

    I am looking for a helper that has can help with children and that is happy to help out with some general house work, cooking and baby sitting in exchange of comfortable, private living and food.
    We have an converted garage with good beds, sofas and tv and you will have access to bathroom in the main house.

    I have two boys 11 and 8 years old and we can speak English, Icelandic and Swedish and a little bit of Spanish.

    The work will be based on 4h a day 5days/week including house work, babysitting, taking children to activities and doing homework with them, however this may vary, you might have more work one day and more days off instead. This position would be great for someone that would like to do some paid work or study on the side as there will be plenty of spare time to do so.

    I am a traveller myself so I love sharing stories about places I have visited and lived.

    If you have your own car that would be a bonus and you have to be a confident driver with a valid drivers license in order to share the family car. If you do not have a car I will make alternative arrangements so we can both get around.

    References are a bonus!

    If you think this would suit you then please feel free to contact me via e-mail.

    Kind regards,
    Hlif (Leaf)
