Do you fancy a stopover in London on your way to other places? We have had great experiences hosting workaways and au pairs, and need someone to be at home with our l two boys (aged 12 and 14) in a single or couple pair of hands around the house and garden and the holidays.
We are a family of four - working mum and dad, boys Sam and Jacob.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
We live in a residential family house in West London: walk one way from our house and you have leafy roads down to parks and the river Thames; walk the other way and you have the huge bustle and multi-cultural glory of Shepherd's Bush. We love hosting people and watch them discover the joys of London far away from hostel or backpacker life. In our allotment, you will see the joy of vegetable growing - and the idyll that sits as a secret within the city centre. But you will also see that working in London just doesn't give us the time to fix a shed roof!!
UPDATE - WE are now full until February 2019! We need someone to be an alongside our boys after school (4.30pm onwards) and cook the evening meal. We'd all eat together after my husband and I get home from work 7.30pm. We love our city and would direct you to the sights of London - galleries, museums, open spaces and more!
Quiet double room with small private outdoor terrace overlooking garden and own WC adjacent. Part of family house, with large living room, open plan kitchen and warm heart.

We've had a number of au pairs live with us successfully who have found cheap ways to make the most of this great city.
