I'm open to having someone stay here on a demi au pair basis, as I am in need of help to do to physical tasks.

Sleeping options vary. One room with queen sized bed, if you arrive when my son is away (approx one week in every month). This is ade cent quality bowl mattress (Eurobed) which can be moved downstairs if preferred. Otherwise you would stay for longer periods in our spare single bedroom downstairs, which also has a separate entrance. Shared bathroom upstairs, and one in the common space of the community as overflow.

Tasks would include light maintenance work such as painting touch ups, cleaning, light gardening, cooking, grocery shopping, childcare, dog walking/feeding. Possibly putting up curtain rods and fixing things if you are handy with a drill.

Some shared meals and access to the fridge and kitchen facilities to cook, the rest of the time. In other words, part time home help in exchange for accomodation, part time house share arrangement, with access to amenities. I am not in a position to supply all meals but envisage eating together some of the time, having meals prepared for me and my child some of the time, and eating separately when needed, too.

The spare room is small but light and airy, fine for those travelling light.

I'm after someone who is self-motivated, time efficient, good with kids (12 yr old boy) and dogs, tidy, doesn't need constant supervision, and has the maturity to negotiate how the house is respectfully used and shared.

Thank you!



I live in a lovely intentional community, very close to Fremantle and five minutes from the beach. There are great opportunities to engage with the community around us e.g. twice-weekly dinners during the school terms. We have an onsite composting and mulching system for green waste, rainwater tanks to flush toilets, and a grey water system.

I am joining as an individual however, as I currently need help around my house. I am a single mother of one 12 year old child and cannot for physical reasons currently do all the gardening, lifting and other things that help to make it feel like home.

I'm a musician, linguist, writer and Mum, with a degree in Anthropology and an interest in supporting health choices. I enjoy reading, writing, the beach, quiet holistic living.

We have a lovely, placid Jack Russell terrier who is both friendly and a good guard dog!

I am looking for a self-responsible, energetic "au pair" type person who would be happy to stay short term, a bed in exchange for some defined tasks. Mainly cleaning, cooking, dogcare and childcare.

Childcare police clearance or references preferred

Being a community, there is also some common garden space and extra social space to relax in, as well as our private garden. Very friendly neighbours!

I look forward to hearing from people who can balance community-mindedness, and also be self-sufficient quiet-living and respect privacy.

NB I speak fairly good French and some German, a little Indonesian and Japanese!
