Area: City of Anchorage, AlaskaLooking for a last minute worker starting August 26th, until September 15th. Responsibilities include tidying up after guests check out and helping around the main house as needed. Work starts usually at 11am and is over usually between 2 and 3pm. The days vary but generally four to six days a week (sometimes less). The rest of the days and afternoons are yours to explore Anchorage and the outdoors. I am active and like to spend my time outdoors. There are a lot of responsibilities that come with having a large home. I work a 9-5 and get up early on weekdays, but Alaska is very fun and beautiful in summer, so I try to take full advantage on the weekends. If I can find someone to share the chore load during the week, it would free up time to enjoy rafting, camping, hiking, cycling, running, kayaking, sailing, traveling, fishing, and exploring on the weekends. Workstayers might want to join me on adventures from time to time, or get out and explore independently - if I need to get out of town for a few days, we can take turns watching the house and taking care of the pets. I have a few loaner bicycles you can use, and would happily buy a variety used equipment for recreational use if you are interested in helping fix them up for the guests. They would be available for everyone to use. The ideal stay is 1-4 months, depending on the relationship we build, and the quality of work, but right now I am looking for a last minute worker for August 26th to September 15
Area: Midi PyreneesI am Nina, an ex probation officer, interested in trying to write my first book and I have been living in France properly for the last 3 years - mainly renovating my home and a lot of gardening! I have been used to travelling and spent several years in Greece in another life. I am possibly renting out the large house for a few weeks in the peak summer months and would like some help to get it ready. I have three adult children who often come to visit and I live here, together with Claus, who helps around the place, two dogs and a cat. My interests are travelling, reading, art, cinema and exploring/enjoying the French way of life. My friends over here are both French and other internationals.
