* We are looking for someone to stay with us roughly between the end of February to the middle of April 2020
We are a little family of four. Our youngest son is 7 years old now, his name is Isaac , and our eldest is 11 (Arran). I am Susie, and I am doing a training in Homeopathy, and I need some help while I am finishing my studies in homeopathy . The course finishes in June 2020 but the hardest time is from now until the end of April. My husband, Marcus, works in Cork until 6 every evening so he is only available to mind our kids in evenings and weekend, Also he works away around the country for one or two nights a week so the extra help comes in very handy when he is not around.
We live in the lovely town of Kinsale in County Cork by the sea. Our house is walking distance from the shore and in the heart of the busy town of Kinsale. It is a fantastic little town with lots of colour and beauty and many things to do. Its really is a great place to be and we love to show guests around.
We are looking for someone to help us with the house (COOKING IS VERY IMPORTANT!) and also to mind my two boys for few hours everyday while I study or see patients. Both boys are at school till 3 o clock each day. I would need someone to help also with the school runs a few mornings (the school is 10min walking from our house).
Arran is a super active bright child who is mad (at the moment) with his Yu Gi-Oh cards and cycle his bike!. He plays soccer too. Isaac is into drawing and reading now, and he has a great character. Marcus is a manager of a theatre company. He s from Argentina so we speak Spanish and English in the house also . I myself am in the holistic world but i taught languages for years.
The area we live in is truly beautiful, Kinsale and minutes away from a surfing beach, and there is a great network of au pairs and other workaway people in the area. It can be quite magic here if the weather holds up .
Ideally we would love someone to stay 3/4 weeks ....Let us know if you are interested and we hope to talk to you very soon !!
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
There are many wonderful things to do here in this town, running , walks by the sea. surfing or sailing or cultural get togethers in the area, there are theatre events, pubs, coffee shops and lots of other activities in the town. We love to show people around too ! it gives me a great perspective on where we live. Also we speak in English or Spanish depending on what is needed so we can help with language learning if the person coming is interested in developing that way.
I would need help cooking (My boys eat alot!). Also, we would need help in the house (basic cleaning & tidying up). Besides that we are looking for someone who will like to spend some time with our kids and maybe think of some activities for the bright and smart little boys to do . Craft or outdoor activities are great as they love both and the beach is very close to us. We spend alot of time in the great outdoors if the weather is good.
We live in a nice house very near the beach and in the middle of the lovely and colourful town of Kinsale. The town is full of people and cafes, restaurants, nice views, and quite a lot of young people come here every year. Also there is a great network of Workawyers and au pairs to hook up with. In terms of the space in the house for the person coming to help us, we have a spare room upstairs so you would have your own bedroom (with a single bed). We have two bathrooms upstairs (so you will have to share the bathroom).
Susie used to be a language teacher so she can help with English learning if needed. Marcus is very much involved in the cultural scene in the area so can recommend many activities. We live in such an idyllic spot , especially when the sun shines, near Kinsale which is a very touristic town and next to the best surfing beach this side of Cork. It is an active beach with surfing and sailing and fishing being very prominent . If you like bike rides there are alot of places to cycle of too. It is a small piece of paradise. There is a bus that travels every hour from Kinsale to Cork (the BIG city in the province), so transport is frequent and easy.
