  • Description


    Hi we are a busy working family living by the coast on the South Arm Peninsular. Our home is hilltop wooden sanctuary surrounded by trees and a view of the ocean out to the Tasman Peninsular and Betsys Island. There is a walking or mountain bike trail ( Tangara Trail ) behind our house that runs for around 35 kms and there is a surf beach across the road.There are plenty of places to explore and birdlife is abundant.
    We love food and cooking and have a fully equipped kitchen.
    If you work with us you will have use of a car and mountain bikes and you can work in with my husbands roster to have days off in a row to explore the state. We are 30 minutes from Hobart where you can explore Salamanca , MONA, Cascade Brewery, micro breweries and the many shops and restaurants that Hobart is famous for.

    We are looking for 1or 2 honest, fun girls or a couple with a "can do "attitude who can look after my 2 year old son named Oscar.
    This will include feeding, changing nappies, playing and putting him to sleep during the day. I would also ask you to do some light cleaning duties like clothes washing and sweeping or vacuuming when needed.
    It is important to have a drivers licence and helping with children check.
    We will need you for about 6 weeks.
    During that time you will have blocks of days off to go and explore with the use of one of our cars. My husband has 4 or 5 days off in a row so you can also help around his roster.
    We can negotiate that some money will be paid at the end of your stay for your efforts.
    I will be with you for the first few days of your stay so you can get a feel for our routine and Oscar can get used to you both being his carer. He is a happy and playful boy with a keen sense of humour.
