To prospective workawayers. My name is Irene and I live in a gorgeous inner-city suburb in Melbourne called Fairfield, only 25 minutes from Melbourne's thriving CBD by car 40mins by train. My daughters Zena who is 27 years old studying postgraduate counselling and teaching and Ophelia, live with me in our family home. Ophelia is 20 years' old and is in real estate. We have the sweetest cavoodle called Ava, a ball of fluff that thinks she is human. We are a family of Greek descent, my parents arrived to Australia in the 1950's but have since called Australia home.
From the outset, our family home is quite large. I am an architect. We bought a block of land, sub-divided it and built a house on two thirds of the block, keeping the vacant land free until we decided what to do with it. In 2004, we built a second home for the purpose of hosting international students studying English in Melbourne.
Today, we have four beautifully-appointed rooms and a house that we run as an Airbnb. We have a very energetic, happy household that is full of life and fond memories.
I am now working in a senior position in local government, project manager for a number of community facilities, and have come to the stage where i could really benefit from a willing helping hand around the house. We would like to invite a friendly and able person to help with day-to-day chores. We have the ideal family environment, warm and open. In return, we would like to extend our friendship and knowledge of living like a local in Melbourne.
Please feel free to contact us directly. we look forward to hosting you!

We live in an international household that is lively and has a bright atmosphere. Dinner table discussions in particular are unique and interesting with topics being flavored by varied cultural opinions. Our home environment has the youthfulness of a share house and nurturing and supportive nature, minus the mess. We have helped many students in the past with their English through these discussions as well as colloquial Australian dialogue.

We would need help with household chores including vacuuming, dusting, mopping, cleaning bathrooms, cooking and maintaining general tidiness. We would also benefit from gardening help, including hedge trimming, pruning, weeding and keeping our vegetable garden healthy.
