  • Description

    Description

    We live in Australia- NSW- mid north coast - Halliday’s point. 3.5 hours north of Sydney.

    **NB: Due to current situation we do not encourage travel from VIC and therefore can not currently accept travellers from there.**

    We are looking for a kind, warm, caring and active helper/s to join our family in our coastal home.
    We are a little on the alternative side, into healthy food, protecting the Earth however we can, attempting to leave a small footprint, and also love to meet new people.
    We are located 3.5 hrs north of Sydney and live about 5kms from the beach. We have a lovely, quirky, recycled house we have renovated over the last 18 months.
    We are looking for someone who can easily fit into our healthy lifestyle (our kids don't eat sugar and rarely have screen time), help with the kids, ideally teach them a little of your language (would love a Spanish speaker at some point if possible) and help me with house duties(washing, cooking, cleaning).
    If you are a couple we also have some gardening/ landscaping type work. We would love someone who is self motivated, can show initiative in getting things done and most importantly, loves kids and can live as a part of our family.
    We would ideally like a 3 week to 3 month stay. We are not vegetarian but we like to be as ethical as we can in the choice of meat we eat. Ideally buying locally and organic/free range. Our 3 children: Mahlia (6), Rafi (4) and Kiah (1) are social, active and compassionate kids. We are currently doing home education with a focus on free play and life experiences and would love someone who is eager to share skills and knowledge with the kids.
    I am a Physical Education teacher in secondary school and my wife is a Yoga teacher/qualified English and Drama secondary teacher. We have travelled a lot ourselves and would love to bring some culture from the world here to the Manning valley. Generally with help x we provide good quality food, a double bed in own room in the house and access to a car when needed for local day trips for Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week
