What are our clients saying about us?

  • Amanda I used Polo & Tweed to find me a housekeeper after I had my second child to help around the house so that I could concentrate on the new baby and my toddler. The service Polo & Tweed provided was excellent. I was able to interview several candidates before finding an excellent housekeeper. I was supported in finding someone who was the right fit for my situation. They also took the headache out of agreeing hours, contracts and pay. The housekeeper was excellent and just knew what needed to be done without being asked.

What you would need to provide


A Live-in Housekeeper would need to be given his or her own private room. This can vary from client to client depending on their home(s). In the most simple version, our clients provide the Housekeeper with her own private bedroom in the main residence. This would normally consist of a double bed, furniture, TV, and wifi. This can include either an ensuite or bathroom. More often than not, our clients dedicate a ‘level’ of the house to the housekeeper, be it a basement flat area or attic conversion which would then act as a bedroom/private bathroom. Some of our clients provide an entire ‘apartment’ to the housekeeper as part of the main residence, giving the housekeeper a bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bathroom. Clients with more space often try to accommodate the housekeeper in the ‘annex’ or outbuilding dwellings which can range from studio apartments to two bedroom apartments.


If you require the housekeeper to drive, then most clients provide the housekeeper with access to the family cars, or their own dedicated car to drive for errands, shopping, etc.

Additional Package

Most of our clients are very generous with their housekeepers and offer additional perks to the live-in package. This can include a mobile phone allowance, gym membership, health insurance, fuel for days off, food, bonuses, etc. It just depends on the nature of the salary offered and how you wish to attract the right candidates to the role.
