  • Description


    Hi my name is Rowan, I am a single father of 3 beautiful children. Two girls, Jailyn aged 16, Tiarna aged 15 and the boy, Jaspa aged 8. I am very busy with work so we decided to look for a fun loving Au pair (Nanny) or preferably a couple to assist with child care and house duties. The kids live wth me full time, and i believe this is just as good for them to learn about other cultures as it would be for you to learn about ours.

    We prefer a long term stay (3 months or longer) but happy to discuss other options that may suit.

    We have been doing this for 3 years now and staying with us is very cruisey, so I’ve been told, it won’t cost you anything!!

    We live in Helensvale , Sth east Queensland, Australia. 15 minutes from Surfers Paradise and 45 minutes from Brisbane. Public transport, both bus and train, walking distance away. I am happy to assist where I can with transport, with my own vehicle. I also have a spare car for you to use!

    When writing please put the code word 'happy' into description so I know you are not spam.
