  • Description

    Description

    We are a relaxed Swedish Australian family living in lovely Balmain in a large house just 10 minutes ferry or bus ride to Sydney .

    Our family consist of Mum, Dad and three boys, 12, 10 and & years old. (Zac, Oscar and Ali !)

    We have had many travelers and long-term stayers living with us before and it has worked out really well. We can send you reviews to read on another site as we are new to this one.

    We are both x-travelers ourselves (10 years on the road travelling together around the world) and we know how wonderful and enriching it is to get to share the stories, experiences and backgrounds with others who are doing the similar thing as us. We also know how nice it is when you get to live in a clean, private and un-crowded environment with a warm power shower!

    Of course, in exchange for your help around our house we provide and share all clothes washing and drying facilities, unlimited fast internet, bikes etc.


    The work will be up to 4 hours a day (usually less) in exchange of food and accommodation. We need you to be able to pick up the children at 3 pm from school most days of the week and cook for them.

    Great opportunity to live in a beautiful and central location for free. Walk to the ferries, busses, supermarket, swimming pool, pubs, restaurants, and cafes. Balmain is a lovely suburb surrounded by Sydney Harbour with lots to do.

    Please provide us with following information:
    *️️️️️️️️️️ Travel insurance.
    *️️️️️️️️️️ Copy of passport
    *️️️️️️️️️️ Must have no criminal record
    *️️️️️️️️️️ Non-smoker

    We are looking for a helper either single or a couple.

    We are looking for a helper who can mainly assist in picking up kids from school (some limited amount of driving to sport required but school is around the corner so a walk) cooking, cleaning, washing car and general help in our home in exchange of a comfortable, private and clean room and good food.

    Would suit a single person as we don't have enough work for two everyday although a second person can stay and work for a normal job and pay A little for food.


    The work will be around 4 hours a day (usually less) in exchange of food and accommodation. We need you to be able to pick up the children at 3 pm from school most days of the week and cook for us all.

    Please provide following if successful:
    *️️️️️️️️️️ Travel insurance.
    *️️️️️️️️️️ Copy of passport
    *️️️️️️️️️️ Must have no criminal record
