    At the moment we are looking for someone to come on holidays with us in January. It's for 2 weeks on the sunshine coast.

    Mornings will be your free time to do what you want but you will be required to look after the kids in the afternoon and evenings, taking them to play at the beach, to the park and anything else that they want to do plus occasionally cooking them dinner.

    Just generally helping with the kids as needed.

  • Languages spoken

    English: Fluent

  • Accommodation


    We will be staying in a self contained apartment close to the beach.

    Food is included while you are looking after the kids. If you wish to explore on your free time than you will have to pay for your own food.

    While we are at home you will have your own room.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    On your time off, in your free time there are lots of places to see, Australia Zoo is close by and can be accessed by a bus. Lots of beaches, shops and cafes, surfing schools and other activities.

    We usually go to the beach as a family in the mornings, this will be your time off to do something else or you are welcome to join us if you wish.
    After this we head back to the apartment for a swim in the pool.
    Some days we go out exploring or visit attractions around the area.

    In the afternoons my husband and I like to catch up with friends and this is when you would be required too look after the kids.
