  • Description


    Hello - We have a new puppy - NED - he is adorable and we love him to bits. We are stuck while I'm at work and looking for a day mum to watch him while I am at work. Looking for helpers ASAP....

    I am single mum to 10 year old girl and 7 year old boy. I work as school nurse weekdays office hours. my son can have challenging behaviours and can be shy with new people but is very loving once he gets to know you.

    We are fun, easy going and love outdoors and the beach which is a short bike ride from our house. Weekends we swim in beach/local pool or play or bbq in parks and Sundays we attend church.

    I gym regularly and we eat healthy most days. We are usually a busy, on-the-go household. We love being spontaneous.

    Amber our first dog is very loving!

    We live on the outer parts of Hervey Bay so have cows and kangaroos close by.

    You would hav own room (either room 2 with a single bed or room 3 with a double bed) shared bathroom. Room 1 I use for an air bnb which I solely run occasionally or use for when family visit. I just ask you keep shared communal spaces and bathrooms neat and tidy.

    All meals provided. Limited wi fi as I don't have home broadband. Own MANUAL car for private use.

    You have access to our snorkelling gear and bicycles.

    Help with cleaning house clean, looking after NED, washing, and garden if you keen but not essential.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am originally from South Africa so happy to share that culture too.

    We can share a day to day Aussie life and happy to take you for a drive to spot some kangaroos nearby. I am knowledgeable about what beaches and tourist spots to see in the area and have maps and info at home.

    I can accommodate more than one traveller at a time and have short term rentals so there’s a good chance you will have a chance to meet Someone new during your stay.
