After the better part of a year spent cooped up inside, we genuinely just want to get away from it all – and for one lucky couple, that idle dream could soon become a reality.

High end domestic recruiter Polo & Tweed is currently scouting for an “experienced domestic couple” to work for a “high net worth” family on their private island in the Bahamas - and will pay the couple £90,000 for the role. Yep, it’s a dream gig.

The family is based between Naples in Florida and the Bahamas and those interested in applying should have a valid driver's license and the legal right to work in the US.

As well as the £90,000 salary, the couple can expect to have health care and dental benefits, have a car provided for work duties and there is also a re-location option for those looking to move to the area with on-site accommodation provided.

The family of four have two grown children who live at home and own a large country estate in Naples, with three houses and nine bathrooms. The Bahamas estate consists of four houses, each with four bedrooms.
