  • Description


    We are a family of 5. My husband works full time and I work part-time and mostly from home as I am a photographer but do lots of traveling.
    We have 4-year-old Amelia, almost 2-year-old Xavier, and a puppy dog who is not so little but he still believes can fit in your arms (he is a bit silly)
    My kids like to spend time outside, in the park next door or in the forest, or at the beach. Also many days Amelia spends with our neighbor.
    The kids have their schedule when they go to sleep but we allow a couple of late nights, especially during the summer.
    They like music, dancing, playing, and painting.
    Amelia likes to help a lot, especially with cooking and baking. So if you have the patience, she will be a great companion for you.

    We live in a beautiful place, full of surf, nature walks. If you like quite life and love beautiful sunsets, this spot will be for you.
    We have a beautiful community of people. Always fresh veggies as many of our neighbours have gardens and they always love to gift us with everything. It doesn't get better then this if you are a nature lover.
    You can learn Portuguese too as none of my neighbours speak English (well just one as he is Irish)

    I need someone who can stay from now until the 12th of August minimum.
    The kids are in preschool until the beginning of August but then there is the dog and some cooking to do. This doesn't mean you will be cooking all day, some days yes, some days I do it or we order takeaway.

    In August I am traveling for 4 days and I need you to stay with my kids full time for those 4 days, however any other day we can agree, even if you want to have two days off. We can just work it out as we go.
    Those 4 days you will be going with my husband to Lisabon to his hostel where the kids know it and can be more relaxed than home alone with them if you prefer.
