    Description

    Looking for a place to stay in May? We would be very grateful for an extra pair of hands to help with childminding and home duties.
    After 1 yr of very successful and enjoyable exchanges with people from different parts of the world, We are now interested in hearing from workawayers available from 15th of may until May 31st

    About us: I am a primary school teacher working casually and my husband is a tradesman. On the weekends we operate a mobile business (foodtruck) selling crepes and coffee.
    Your duties would include taking care of our son 2-3 days per week (including washing, dressing, preparing meals and fun learning activities).
    Whilst you are at home during the day we ask that you contribute to the running of the house hold by assisting with general cleaning, clothes washing/hanging etc and garden maintenance if you are so inclined.
    if need be, you will have use of 1 of our vehicles so you can get yourself and our son to where you need to be.
    We can also discuss the use of our car for your personal time. There are limited times where we may require some assistance in running our food trailer (We sell French crepes and coffee) and we would love someone who would be interested in learning some hospitality skills
    Whilst here you can enjoy the beautiful Australian summer/autumn.
    You will have a private space to sleep and relax, separate from the main house. We can share meals, a few wines or beers and laughs together but you may also enjoy your own privacy and quiet time.
    In exchange for your help we will provide you with comfortable accommodation 10 minutes from a very famous surf beach on the great ocean rd. We have push bikes so you can get yourself around. Also we are very easy going and relaxed and looking for a mature, easy going, outgoing person to join us :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live within walking distance to Ocean Grove Surf beach and both my husband and I love surfing. If you were interested you could ride your bike to the beach in your spare time and enjoy the natural beauty and also catch a few waves. My husband is a native French man and I am an Australian teacher. We would be happy to share our love of learning, studying and gardening. You could also gain experience in the hospitality industry if you were interested in helping with our food trailer and of course gain experience in the childcare industry which is a booming industry in Australia
