Relaxed Family Home, San Antonio in Texas, Seeking Summer Helper for Summer 2020.
Are you free to experience the USA between May & August?
We need a happy female helper to assist Mom in child care and daily household duties. We live in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood which we love.
We are a fun and energetic family of five! Mom Andrea stays home with 3 kids - daughter 9y and sons 8y and 6y. They all attend the local schools and take part in lots of extra activities.
We're loving life in Texas and are originally from Edinburgh (Scotland) so we can share our American and European culture with you. We've had helpers from Japan (4), Germany, England (3), France, New Zealand and The Netherlands (2). The kids are used to helpx girls, which makes it really easy for everyone!
You will have your own private mini-apartment during your stay with us.
Do you enjoy swimming and being outside everyday?
If that's you then please read more!
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
This is a busy household which needs a practical and caring helper to supervise play and swim time outdoors, craft and game time indoors and help with math/reading tuition.
Everyday outdoor help includes keeping the pool and deck areas clean and tidy. Daily light housework such as vacuuming, dusting, cleaning and laundry. Also assistance in cooking meals and clearing up. Occasional babysitting in the evenings after the kids bedtime.
You must have experience of caring for young children. Also having a sense of fun and an outgoing personality will go a long way!
You need to be someone who is able to travel alone and independently in your free time. To meet new people and find your way around San Antonio and the USA by yourself. You can take an Uber anywhere here, take a bus around the city, ride a bike around the neighborhood or hire a car to get yourself around (over 23y for car hire).
Summers in Texas are all about outdoor dining, keeping cool in the swimming pool and the amazing sunshine!
WHAT YOU GET IN RETURN:
Enjoy the comforts of a luxury modern family home with outdoor pool.
Own private mini apartment, has separate entrance with key, and access directly to the pool.
Very own bathroom with shower and kitchenette.
Comes with wall mounted flat screen TV for easy casting. Plus Amazon, Netflix and YouTube channels.

Free access to superfast Wi-Fi.
Use of a new bicycle with lock & helmet.
An allowance to get your own groceries.
You will be free to entertain yourself every weekend, to go exploring wherever and whenever you want. Your private apartment means you have your own "little house" with your own front door and key to be completely independent.
We are happy to collect and return you from San Antonio International Airport or Greyhound Bus Station (15 mins drive).
You will learn a great deal about American and Texan/Mexican culture.
Everywhere you go here there is a strong Mexican influence so you will have lots of opportunities to practice your conversational Spanish.
Come and enjoy true Tex-Mex culture here in San Antonio, 26m tourist visit here every year so there is a lot to do!
Once you’ve experienced San Antonio’s famous "River Walk" you can easily explore the rest. Nearby the top attractions are: SeaWorld, Six Flags Fiesta Theme Park, Schlitterbahn Waterpark Resort and The Alamo World Heritage Site.
