  • Description


    Hi traveler, we are a family of 5. I'm a professional freelance photographer, my husband is a self employed landscaper. We are looking for someone, who likes kids, wants to improve their English and is happy to help around the house. Our boys are 3, 7 and 9 years old and they are super friendly and fun. We have had young travelers staying with us for 3 years now and we love it. We have several good references on other sites, just trying a new side here, to have more options.

    Looking for help on 15th May

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a friendly and supportive family. We had several travelers with very limited English and they all improved dramatically. I am in immigrant from Czech Republic my self, so I understand very well the challenge of living in a different country, learning a new language and adjusting to a new culture. We live close to the city and beach, so plenty of possibilities to attend ;language schools, socialize with other travelers or look for a job.

  • Help


    We are a family with 3 lively boys. We require mainly help with household chores: Cooking, cleaning, dishes, laundry, clean the whole house once a week (mopping, vacuuming, dusting, wash the bathroom and toilet...) and occasional babysitting. At this very stage, we would prefer a male helper as we feel the boys connect with our male helpers better. Minimum stay is 6 weeks.

  • Accommodation


    Your own bedroom upstairs, big bed, your own bathroom. WiFi. Small house, if you are not used to live with children, you might find us too noisy. Melbourne city only 15 min by underground, 15 min to beach, 5 min to shops and restaurants. Beautiful residential location with bus and train within 8 min walk.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Your help will be needed mostly in the mornings and late afternoon. During the day, you are free to explore the city or go to school, or find a job. There is only occasional child minding, the goal is you help with the house chores, so we can spend more time with the kids.
