We have been involved in Workaway since February 2015 which is why our profile is so detailed! We took a one year hiatus from Workaway due to COVID but are ready to host again.
PLEASE READ OUR PROFILE CAREFULLY, and ask questions if you have any further clarification.
- not be a smoker
- not have a special diet (eg. not be a vegetarian or vegan)
- not be allergic to cats (we have two indoor cats)
- read and understand all details in our profile as it contains our expectations of you in our home
We are a busy family of four with two gorgeous girls - 10yrs old and 8yrs old. We live in a modern air-conditioned (plus ceiling fan) split-level townhouse that is centrally located only 7km from inner Sydney's main business/shopping district (CBD) with direct public transport on our doorstep.
We are both very busy professionals. Daniel works in IT while I (Helen) currently work long hours in digital marketing. While work is important to us, family time is even more important. That's where you come in.
As a workawayer, you will be making our life easier so we get to spend quality time with the kids and not stress about maintaining this home. We love to go exploring Sydney as a family and spend time outdoors - at beaches, national parks and we go camping over the summer months (which you're welcome to join us). We also like a wide range of foods and I have my own recipe blog as I love to cook... but I'm also happy if someone wants to take over the kitchen and cook for us!

Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre
We are a family that loves diversity and different cultures. Share with us your culture and even speak to the kids in your native language... and we'll share with you a bit of our Czech, Italian, New Zealand and Australian hospitality.
I also can teach those eager to learn some tasty recipes!

Work is varied. It depends on the time of year and what is a priority for us at the time. We need help with:
- Collecting and dropping off kids to school.
- House cleaning such as vacuuming, mopping floors, tidying up.
- Clothes washing and folding.
- Washing cars (with assistance from our two girls of course!)
- Updating the inside of our three bedroom townhouse with fresh paint (ceiling, walls, doors, windows, and stairs).
- Potted garden maintenance incl weeding and watering.
We are flexible enough with any workawayer to give numerous days off to explore greater NSW.
Doing dishes and cleaning up after breakfast and dinner are not included in your hours. This is what we would expect ANY guest staying with us in our busy family to do. You would also do this if you stayed in a hostel/backpackers. If you don't like this, please don't apply to stay with us.
The room available is on the top floor of our split level townhouse with an adjoining bathroom containing a shower, bath and toilet. The room contains one double-sized bed with ceiling fan. Our three-bedroom townhouse has 4 floors so not for the physically impaired. We have an outdoor courtyard as well as a rooftop balcony. Your room includes wireless internet.
Sydney is GORGEOUS! We encourage all workawayers staying with us to spend as much time investigating all that Sydney has to offer.
On your days off, you are welcome to join our family activities (eg. Nippers surf lifesaving, camping, swimming pool, visiting beaches and national parks).
The Sydney CDB is only 7km away which you can walk or take direct public transport there. The 438 and 438N bus goes past our home with a bus stop close to our house - this takes you into the city. Going the other way, the same bus takes you to the ferry at Abbotsford wharf.
