Hi, we are a family of three living in close city suburbs of Sydney (30-35min by car). We love hosting people and sharing our home as we are blessed that we can do that. We will give you a private room, a private shower/toilet. We try to host 2 but if needed and depending on “what’s in it for us?” we can host 4. Just light duties like keeping things tidy, cooking, cleaning but mostly interacting / culture / language exchange with a 10 year boy (Kabir) who already is very independent so it’s not really babysitting.
My wife Ruchi and Kabir will be going for Europe and South America travel for a year so this is all to prepare them well.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Learn from our life and travel experiences. We have lived in Sydney since 2007 but originally from India so we can really contribute in terms of enriching your knowledge of both Australian and Indian culture.
Caring - be at home till 8.30am for Kabir to leave for school; and be back by 5pm (Only on Tuesday and Wednesday) to teach him 30-45 min of language and play with him. We are flexible to ensure you are happy staying with us so we can discuss clearly your expectations of “working” as well. We would like to ensure that you have enough time to explore a beautiful city like sydney.
Language exchange / learning need: Spanish, French, Italian, German
Private room, private shower and toilet. House is in a very safe, quiet neighbourhood. Food - I am happy to buy groceries for the house for what we eat usually. We tend to not cook meat at home but I (Nirman) and Kabir we can eat meat and Ruchi is vegan. But if you want to cook meat at home for yourself - that’s ok.
I am not a really good cook so we will need to share cooking and cleaning duties together.
We will make plans to show you Sydney with us and you don’t have to pay for fuel :-)
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
More than two
Maximum 2-3 hours a day, 5-6 days a week (weekdays 9-5pm is free for you to explore Sydney)
