I am looking for a helper, preferably female, to help me with housework for 2 and a half hours a day in exchange of accommodation only. This is not a proper room but a double bed in the garage. You will have a small tv (apple computer) with Netflix, and unlimited wifi. The garage has direct access to he house. We do not run heaters in the bedrooms or in the garage, due to high cost of electricity in New Zealand, but there are heaps of blankets and a hot water bottle, and we do have heating in the lounge.

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 12 and 15. The chores would be general cleaning, doing the dishwasher, putting the washing in and out, ironing, ...whatever is needed that day. Starting time is totally flexible and no need to get up early at all as long as all tasks assigned for the day have been finished before 3 pm.
