Our excellent, english-speaking, housekeeper, Saody, has a slot available for a job on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.

She's by far the best housekeeper I've had the privilege of employing in the 7 years I've lived in Cambodia and I've employed 5 good ones previously. For us she comes and does 3 hrs of thorough cleaning, tidying and laundry 3 mornings a week. She's pretty smart and good humoured but respects privacy and never 'oversteps' the boundaries of a normal employer-employee relationship (as I've known and heard many housekeepers can do - to varying degrees).

She knows most of the normal ins-and-outs of western tastes in housekeeping generally and on top of that she's remarkably adaptable, as she senses almost immediately any habits or preferences for how you want things. Any discrepancies and just a brief word to her is all it takes for her to adapt whatever it is you want done differently from then on. She is also a very trustworthy lady and we've left our apartment in her hands several times while away and we've always returned happily to a home perfectly ordered and tidied with nothing ever 'out of place'.

As a bonus, she's also trained to cook western food - through the reputable cooking course at The Garden Centre restaurant - though we've never asked her to cook for us.

Biggest bonus of all though is that she speaks and *writes* reasonably good english, so communication is pretty smooth and she helps whenever there's a need for Khmer-English translation - with landlords etc.

We would expect her monthly pay for 2-3hrs of cleaning, tidying, laundry etc, Tuesday and Thursday mornings, to be at least $45 per month. This is for a modest to large-sized apartment and for a couple. If cooking is required, and/or it's for a bigger home or for a family, it really should be more. This is only fair and competitive rates for what she does and the quality of how she does it.
