Hi Travellers, we live in a beautiful leafy suburb of Perth, close to the city and the beach. We are a family of 5 so there is always something to do around the house. Our 3 boys are lots of fun and also keep us on our toes. Perth is a city that will not disappoint. Get off the beaten track of the East Coast and come enjoy the relaxed pace of the West Coast. We'd love to show you what's great about our city.

Help in the house
We love to meet new people and hear about your adventures, background and culture. Staying with us we can give you an insight to real family life in Perth. We are happy to show you around our lovely city.
Summer is the perfect time to be in Perth as this is when the city comes alive. We live only a short bus trip from the beach. Perth beaches are some of the best in the world. Watching the sunset over the water is amazing.
Within a short walk from our home is a picturesque lake and a small shopping center with everything you need including a lovely little café.
Our 3 young boys tend to create a lot of mess, dirty washing and they constantly want to be fed ;) I'm after some help with chores around the house such as changing bed sheets, folding and putting away clean washing, general tidy ups and some help with food preparation. Over the summer holidays the kids will have a block of swimming lessons so help would be appreciated for this activity too. We would require 12 -15 hrs help per week.
We have a large spare bedroom to offer which has a queen size bed, walk in robe, small desk and ceiling fan to keep cool. The bathroom will be shared with our two oldest boys. We will offer all week day meals and internet/Netflix access. During the week we always cook meals but weekends we tend to grab something quick and easy so your welcome to make what you like from what's available at home.
In your spare time here are some of the great places to check out: Fremantle, Elizabeth Quay, Hillary's boat habour, Rottnest Island and the Swan Valley. We can provide a push bike but there are also easy public transport options within a short walk from our house. We have previously hosted travellers and are happy to offer contact details as a reference. We are hoping to find someone who will become family friends as our previous guests have become. We would expect someone to help contribute to general running of daily life such as helping to clean up after dinner and keeping the living areas tidy.
