  • Description


    We have some availability in February.

    We have a beautiful Federation Style house in Cottesloe , best beach suburb in Perth and only a walk away from the beach., We are very close to public transport (train station and bus) going to Perth City and Fremantle. We offer 3 healthy (mostly vegetarian) meals. We have a camper van that we travel with often and can give you many tips where to go.We are young at heart and enjoy good conversations and good food.. In exchange we ask you to help us between 4 and 5 hours a day,depending what needs to be done, however it is not hard work. We have a good work ethic and ask the same of our helpers.
    We need a helper that can understand and speak English ( not perfectly ) likes housekeeping, that has common sense and sees what needs to be done.
    On February 21 our house guests leave and there will be lots to do , like cleaning and laundry, ironing, garden work, etc.

    We have a studio in our garden which we rent. One of the tasks would be to do the changeover.
    We are also in the process of simplifying our lives, which means we are getting rid of a lot of stuff, taking them to the market to sell.
    Plus we will be moving at the end of March.

    Looking forward to your reply.
