Workaway Host rating
I am an American but have lived only in Germany. Presently I live in an attractive apartment in Wiesbaden, an elegant and safe city center with good transportation 40 km southwest of Frankfurt. The main train station is five minutes away. I live with a roommate who only stays a few days during the week.
My landlord couple .. in their 80's .. live on the ground floor and have a problem with men going in and out of my third floor apartment. But women are okay for them. They seem a little worried and too old to understand otherwise. They feel more comfortable with women, so therefore I ask only accept requests from single women. Therefore no men or couples. Thank you for your understanding.
I would like to host and cook for you, show you around and teach you a little about Germany if you like. In exchange I am thankful for any kind of help you can offer.
Type of help.
Help with Computers / internet,
Help in the house,
Cooking / shopping,
Need some help in my apartment (75 m²). I always have plenty of healthy food and like cooking with/for others.
I have many slides which need cleaning and being put into new frames. So I might need some help with that once in a while so I can finally start scanning in the slides with many memories of my family.
There is always some work to do in the apartment, like cleaning dishes, general housework, ironing, sewing work and fixing things.
There is work to be done during the day or in the evening, depending on when you would prefer to explore the beautiful surrounding area.
The famous Rhine river along with many castles is very close to where I live, and there is plenty more to see and experience.
I like making cooking or dinner parties and hosting people from all around the world :) Perhaps you know how to play an instrument and like to practice in front of a small audience.
Either on a comfortable couch in my 25m² room on the top floor or in a separate room when I or my roommate are not home.
What else ...
I like having travellers over from all over the world, meeting new people and taking them to interesting events of all sorts.

What a nice lady and place. I had a great time with Tallie, she is very friendly and nice, and her boyfriend is very nice too.
It just happened that it was a weeklong music festival in town so we went dancing every night and had a fantastic time.
The apartment is very nice and close to the station and downtown. The jobs were very doable and you more
Caitlin is a wonderful person. Even though she did not need me as an host anymore, because her mother wanted to treat her and booked a hotel for her she came over and helped me do some sewing work on my sewing machine. She is very reliable and patient. I wished I could of spent more time with her and hope I can visit her one day in Spain.

I had a chance to spend a week with Talley and get to know her lifestyle and friends. She is very kind and friendly. I helped her in the garden and with some housework and we enjoyed the time together.
Talley is a great guide. She showed me the interesting places in Wiesbaden and Mainz. We also visited the impro-theater and open-air cinema. more
Jana was a great help and it was wondeful sharing time with her. She is a very reliable, interested, interesting and warm-hearted person. She took her work and duties very serious and was very focused in doing a good job. She asked good questions and I was very happy she was able to deal with many different duties.
She got along with everyone more

I had a wonderful time spent together with Talley. I stayed at her marvelous apartment for a week and helped her to do some housework. I met some of Talley's friends and big family, they are fascinating people and it was a great pleasure to know every one of them. I think Talley is the best host for everyone who is open-minded and eager to become more

Ann is very interesting, easy to get along with and full of many talents and interests. I would always want her back again if she asked.

This was my first workaway and a great experience. Talley introduced me to her parents and to a wonderful tour guide. We walked all over Wiesbaden and at night after dinner I crashed on her big comfy couch. Thanks Talley!
Had a wonderful time with her. If you also get the chance - go for it!

I stayed with Talley for about a week in exchange for doing some sewing projects and helping around the house. She is exceptionally friendly and is generous, always throwing dinner parties for her friends. She showed me all around Wiesbaden and is an excellent guide to the Rheingau region. I'd recommend her to anyone who really wants to get to more

I spent a little over a week with Talley in her charming apartment in Wiesbaden and was positively delighted to be her first workaway guest.
