  • Description


    Hi guys,

    We are currently looking for a couple to live in our room and clean our 3 guest houses. Ideally we are after LONG TERM guests if possible.. starting from the end of the year sometime.. maybe October onwards.

    My partner Erick (Puerto Rican) and I (Australian) live in inner city Sydney in Redfern, running three beautiful guesthouses in the same complex. We are offering a couple free accommodation/wifi and bills in exchange for cleaning our apartments between short term rental changeovers while we are away. You'll be living in the heart of the Indigenous area of Sydney only 25 mins walk / 7 min bus into the city, the area is also scattered with cute cafes that do amazing coffee and beautiful parks to picnic in (and watch cute dogs!!).

    Our places- two converted cathedral style apartments with white tiles and industrial style furniture, and a tiny two bedroom apartment. All in the same complex, where we also live.

    The place we live in, is a tiny tropical 3 bedroom place with one other housemate Afiq, an awesome Malaysian guy, and an absolutely lovely girl Anastazia from NZ. You will have your own fully furnished small room with a double bed, space for clothes, and a TV with netflix. Couples preferred as days on 3 cleans can be a lot of work for one person. Best for two :)

    Did i mention we have an outdoor luxurious tipi for you to use?

    We need applicants to be GREAT cleaners, FAST, reliable, good attention to detail and nice :) The changeovers between guests will have to be done in 4 hours total. So we need the right person as it's quite important to us to get the job done well. You don't need to meet our guests, just text us when you've started cleaning, and when you've finished.

    10-2pm working days at the very most. Most days you'll have between 1-3 changeovers, some times you'll have none. Those days you're free to do whatever you like.

    No food provided, just accom. As long as our housemates are happy and the guests continue to give us 5/5 reviews - especially on cleanliness, we'll be happy :)

    Please do not apply unless you have previous experience cleaning or consider yourself very good at cleaning!

    Thanks :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Get ready to have a real inner Sydney city experience in a quiet and historical neighbourhood ! We live in Redfern, which is an area deeply rooted with Indigenous Australian history, therefore hosts a high population of Aboriginals. It also has an array of art bars, and large cultural centres such as Carriageworks, and also many cute cafes with an eclectic and eccentric local community. We are also quite close to many tourist attractions such as Sydney Opera House and the rocks. In doing this job, we can teach you how to do these changeovers and what is involved in being an entrepreneur, if you'd like to know :)

    You'll be staying in your own small furnished room that has a double bed. We have a three bedroom granny flat and a shared bathroom. The place is tiny but very cute with interesting decor and courtyard outside with a giant buddha. It doesn't have a lounge room, but it does have a hallway laden with fairy lights and art, as well as a table for two. No food provided but supermarket closeby and all access to kitchen with utensils you'll need.

    The apartment block we live in is beautiful. It's surrounded by a balinese style garden, with 7 different apartments within a secure complex.. and a luxurious tipi in the garden for your morning coffee before you start your day. HEAVEN!
