  • Description


    Hello! We live in Reunion Island in Indian Ocean in a cosy 3 bedroom house with our son Arthur born in July 2018. Remi is 43 years old and work full time and Julie (44) runs a mountain agency and is a mountain guide with various hours and some early wakes up (she is working as a teacher in a "family countryside house " in eastern Reunion Island) Arthur goes to school 4 times a week and can also go to a kindergarden on wednesdays.
    Help needed to help in the house (cleaning different rooms and stairs, cooking cakes, marmelade, yogourts or ice creams), garden (water, trials to germinate seeds, building gardeners, cut the grass, picking up herbs or fruits), to take care of Arthur sometimes on wednesday mornings and evenings during the week, some times very early in the morning, rarely to drive the car on some points on the island to lift Julie for her job, to translate some hiking tours in your language

  • Hébergement


    a double bedroom with air conditionning (the only room with it in the house) for the first workawayer (even couple)
    possibility to pitch a tent or hamac in the garden (with an emergency bed in the desk/garage or in the living room)
    you will organise your breakfast, lunch can be prepared in the kitchen during the day or past evening, some times we can buy a takeaway, dinners can be prepared by you (more or less: 1/3 or half ) ....half or 2/3 by the family.
    the house is in a very quiet quarter, 5 minutes to drive to a small town center (with pharmacy, grocery, bakery, butchery, pizzeria, doctor...) but it takes about 20' to a big commercial center and half an hour to St Paul
    there is a bus stop not far from the house line nr73 from "gare de saint paul" to le hangar.

    the bus coming from saint denis or saint pierre is a yellow bus : its name is not a number but a letter: T.
    then if you arrive in the middle of the afternoon it could be the time for a nap for Arthur so i won't be able to pick you up very soon (it takes me about 20 minutes to get to gare de saint paul. there you can also get a bus: 73 Saint-Paul ligne 73de Gare Routière (Quai 20) - Saint-paul vers La Croix Hangar - Saint-paul / Terminus Chemin Lebreton -
    time table is: Direction(s)LA PLAINE -

    Autres infos...

    we live 20 minutes driving from a natural reserve with a small lake and a river, there is a hiking trail starting from the house and getting down there, we are 30 minutes driving from the biggest city of the island, 30 minutes driving from the lagoon where you can safely can easily find bus to get to these places (but it takes a bit more time) and everywhere on the island even to the volcano that is still active (but we live the other side of the island: so no fear to have an eruption in our garden!)
