  • Description


    My name is Sarah. I live in a village on the Lycian way and I need help looking after my two sons, Darwin is 3 years old and Wilbur is 20 months old.
    I would like someone to play with and care for the children whilst I study and work. We could work out the schedule together but I would also like someone to help keep the house clean. If anyone was also keen on diy I have a few practical jobs that also need doing but we would stick to the Workaway hours.
    Our village is quite remote but has beautiful walking trails and is becoming much busier, especially in the summer. The nearest town is 15 mins away and there is a bus that goes there or I go there quite regularly too.
    There are lots of popular tourist sites and cool beaches to visit near by.
    I have three dogs and three cats and occasionally look after dogs for other people.
    You would have your own bedroom.
    If you love children, animals and nature please get in contact.
    I also speak Turkish and have a degree in Russian so I would really love to practice speaking Russian again.
    Ideally I would like someone to stay at least 3 weeks so the children get used to them._
