  • Description


    I live in an 8 bedroom palace in southern Sydney. My 10 year old daughter Sasha has begged me to get workaways because she's had so much fun with them in the past, and she loves attention. I also have a 14 year old son "Tristan" who is an introvert and I need help to get him interested in stuff. But they're only with me 25% of the time so you'd have a lot of free time.

    Since this place is so large, we want it to be full of life and full of people. We want to throw parties, but note that none of us are heavy drinkers.

    If you can write (fiction) then that's a plus.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are all interesting people and can talk about all sorts of things. I'm particularly interested in languages and my Brazilian flatmate is interested in learning handyman skills. His wife is good at dancing, teaching dancing, working with young kids and physical training. We are curious and smart people who enjoy learning new things and meeting new people. I work with computers and I know a lot about startups and international business. (Anyone from Finland, Sweden, Holland, Estonia, Slovakia or Denmark?).

  • Help


    The main thing I need help with is to entertain my daughter, who needs constant attention, and who especially loves craft projects; and to try to bring my son Tristan out of his shell by finding something to interest him which is not on a screen.

    If that doesn't use up much of your time then it's a large house and there are various other ways you could help out.

    If you write fiction then we would have a lot to talk about. If you're an introvert then you wouldn't fit in.

  • Accommodation


    It's a large and beautiful and fancy house with a swimming pool and various entertainment areas. There are 6 bedrooms plus another 4 rooms which could be used as bedrooms. We have 180 degree views of the valley. We have a bit of bushland too.

    Transport is worth discussing. We're 9 minutes' drive from Padstow Station which is 30 minutes' train journey from Central Station. To get to Padstow Station, you can take a convenient bus at certain times in the day, or use the house bicycle, or get someone from the household you drop you off there.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our pocket of Sydney is beautiful, green and tranquil but there's not a whole lot to do around here. For kicks you'd be wanting to travel into the city. But for a place to wait out a coronavirus lockdown, you couldn't do better than here.
