  • Description


    We are an easy going family consisting of mum, dad and our 16 year old son. Nathalie is a teacher and Kerry is an accountant, both working mainly from home. We are a busy household, our son is homeschooled and we are often working on different projects around our house.

    We offer food and accommodation in return for 4 hours of help per person per day or accommodation only in return for 2 hours per day.

    Flexible as to times and you can also work longer one day and have a day off.
