    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.
    We pay $250 per week.
    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 6/7weeks starting on the 27 th September or earlier.
    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 days off in a row per fortnight which will allow you some time to really explore beautiful Tasmania.
    You will be paid at the end of your stay for your efforts.
    I will be with you for the first week of your stay so you can get a feel for our routine and Oscar can get used to you being his carer. I can show you some of the surrounding areas so you can feel confident finding your way around.
    Oscar is a happy and playful boy with a keen sense of humour and easy going nature. Watch out he may steal your heart!
