  • Description


    Hello, I live in a large house with garden. It is a five minute walk to the city centre of Dundee.
    I want you to come for a minimum of 1 month but up to 3 months or more.
    I ran an antique restoration business for 23 years and still like to potter around in the workshop occasionally.
    My home is very comfortable and is often busy with children playing and friends and musicians visiting. I love music and go to see my favourite bands and musicians every week. There are always instruments and music in the house.
    I have a small dog called Bonnie and a Labrador called Rosie.
    I would like someone who could help me in the house, cooking, cleaning, laundry, making beds, gardening and general maintenance.
    Dundee is a great university town with many sights to see and a great music scene.

    Dundee is a beautiful city built on the estuary of the river Tay. It boasts a world famous University, dental hospital and medical school. The city is thriving and for someone who likes live music, it is wonderful.

  • Help


    Ideally someone or a couple, who want to come for a minimum of 2 months. I would like someone who will see a task and just do it... initiative to help when something needs doing ie the dishes, dusting, make beds, vacuuming etc someone who can tidy up in the garden, paint woodwork on outside of house. I have a fully equiped workshop.
    I would like a happy person who will blend in with the family, someone with a good sense of humour.
    I would also like you to come to see our local bands and enjoy our City. Someone who plays the guitar would be good and someone who has a good sense of humour. Someone who can blend in like a family member, make cups of tea, clean the bathrooms, kitchen, offer to make lunch or evening meal. Nothing i wouldn't do myself. Things which you would do in your own home and garden. I have had many au pairs over the years and workaway guests, lots have become longstanding family friends. :-)

  • Accommodation


    You would have a comfortable bed in a large fully furnished room. The house has every modern convenience and is only five minutes walk from the City Centre.
    Dundee is a university city with loads of bars, a vibrant music scene, theatres, galleries and a beautiful river frontage, there is also a beautiful beach however the water is only warm for a few days in the summer. Within a ten minute drive you can be in the beautiful Angus countryside where the scenery is gorgeous.

    What else ...

    Fun loving and kind person.

    We have had many au-pairs in the past and they keep in touch and visit regularly, we see them as family now. :-)
