I am looking for a girl/woman to help me with housework for 2.5 hours a day in exchange of accommodation. I'm happy to give the weekend off as long as the hours are done in advance during the week. It's a small, easy to look after house, and it's me (Spanish female) and my two boys who are 11 and 14. The chores would be general cleaning, doing the dishwasher, putting the washing in and out, ironing, shopping...whatever is needed that day. Cooking would be much appreciated and definitely an advantage. Meals are not included, but whenever the helper cooks, she is invited to join in the meal.

It's a warm modern house and the room has a queen size bed. The house is 5 minutes walk to Barrington Mall (with warehouse, supermarket, banks, library, and many shops) and 2 minutes walk to bus stops, very close to town.

Short stays, four days minimum, 3 weeks maximum. Unlimited wifi.

I Need someone from the 11th of September.
