Hello : )

We are a family of 4.
Ariel and I are 45 and our 2 daughters are 5 and 7.
I am into ecology, yoga and rollerblading at the beach! - and working as business mentor at the moment.
Ariel is a musician (percussionist) who works in arts, events management and cultural diversity.

We live in a beautiful location 2 minutes walk to St Kilda Botanic Gardens and 10 minutes walk to the beach. St Kilda is full of wonderful cafes / bars, people, close to lots of public transport and of course the beach.

We have a small house with 1 bathroom. Accommodation for guests is up a small ladder on a mezzanine loft above our lounge room. It is small, with a double bed - and whilst screened off, is not screened from noise below.

Kids are up by 7:30am and its hustle and bustle / breakfast and off to school by 9am. Work would involve around 3 hrs a day -
or a bit more if weekends off. Mainly things like cleaning, cooking, babysitting, gardening. Domestic skills highly preferable.

We will start by offering 5 - 7 days at a time.

When I was in my 20's and 30's I travelled to 30 countries and staying with locals was a highlight of each trip. I still remember their houses (and trying to find their houses), and the conversations we had. For me it was this beautiful sense that the world is full of kindness despite what you read in the news.

Unfortunately we can't take too many people - so please write to us if you:

* will really enjoy living with a family
* don't just sit on your phone all day : )
* are self-motivated and can cook !
* don't mind waiting for the toilet and sleeping in a small loft
* don't smoke and are a clean living type


Happy travels : )

Annette and Ariel
