  • Description


    I share my home with a flat mate and my small dog. We're close to the ocean and harbour and enjoy lots of walking, nice parks, cafes and galleries.
    Home is a modern 3b/r townhouse with lovely views.
    I work full time in town planning and am interested in cities architecture art and good public spaces and parks.
    I also go away for a week or two at a time for teaching and so there's not always the time I'd like to care for my house.
    Mostly I would appreciate help with cleaning and small maintenance jobs to freshen up the house and courtyard garden.
    Some help with better organising my Mac computer would be a bonus.
    I do enjoy sharing a task rather than working alone!

  • Help


    Fairly modern strata townhouse so would be light work housecleaning,
    small painting and repair jobs, some work in a courtyard garden and window cleaning.
    Could balance with some dog walking and cooking if you enjoy those things.
    If you can help with getting a MacBook Pro running better that's a bonus!
