What we offer
Your own sunny room with single bed, wardrobe and desk. The room is off the kitchen, and we are up early so if you like to sleep in it may not suit you. We tend to go to bed fairly early so shouldn`t keep you up late at night.
We love welcoming travellers into our home, sharing culture and conversation.
We have a busy family home in inner Melbourne suburb of East Brunswick. We live in a very cool suburb, 5 km from Melbourne CBD. It is a vibrant local area with loads of parks, bars, cafes and restaurants and culture, with trams right here to get you into the city in 20 minutes.
We would like to exchange 20-25hours of light work for room and board. We are looking for a helper who is willing to help with housekeeping, gardening, maybe some cooking and painting,and to pick up kids from school. We enjoy welcoming helpers to our home to enjoy some cultural exchange. We would prefer someone to stay 1 month or more if possible, but shorter stays are possible.
We are an energetic family who are busy with lots of sports, study and work. We are up early in the mornings so if you like your sleep ins you need not apply. We also try to live in a sustainable way, and would love a helper who has a green atttitude.
Our family consists of Sophie, a 44 year old physio who works full-time, Harvey a 16 year old high school student, and twins Fred and Frank who are 10 years old. We have a very affectionate and intelligent dog called Rosie. We love music and sport, and food and the beach. We will teach you how to kick a footy AFL style amongst other things, and hopefully have lots of fun.
