    Important points to know before sending a message, thank you!

    1. Location:

    Village on the west coast of The Netherlands - NOT suitable for those who wish to stay in a city. There are lots of other wonderful workaway opportunities in cities but this is just a village.

    10 minutes drive/20 minutes cycle from the beach, 20 minutes drive/40 minutes cycle to The Hague centre, 15 minutes drive/35 minutes cycle to Delft.

    2. Tasks Requested:

    Due to a spinal injury and cancer treatment, help with looking after Ralph, a Great Pyrenees (see photo) and tidying/packing up the house prior to sale.

    3. Accommodation Offered:

    Accommodation and groceries for meals included) in exchange for 5 hours work Monday to Friday, weekends off. Alternative options can be discussed.

    4. Ability & Experience:

    Please specify that you are happy with the tasks listed and that you can perform the tasks (i.e. do not have an illness or injury that prevents you from doing these tasks).

    Please also specify whether you have experience with dogs, household maintenance and/or gardening.
    Knowledge of one will suffice ;-)

    5. Share one sentence as to why you would like to stay here and which task suits you best.

    6. Please advise if you would also be interested in the same project in Ireland, as we will be moving in the near future.



    Description of Tasks

    Garden: Easy-peasy, some ability or experience an advantage. General tidy up.

    Great Pyrenees Ralph: Brushing his fur and gentle short walks locally - not too strenuous exercise for giant breeds while they are still growing. He does go to the beach or park for off leash exercise. Experience with dogs required for this task.

    House: Cleaning, including emptying/loading dishwasher, mopping the floor, other household duties. Some fun DIY projects that might be happening or which might interest you. General tidy up and packing.


    IMPORTANT!

    When applying, please specify that you understand points 1- 4 above and point 5 should explain what appeals to you about this workaway project. Thank you!



    Other information:

    Over the last 16 years, I have restored a period villa in a little village near The Hague. Previously, I have worked in many different countries and for more than a decade for NGO's. Now I volunteer but, unfortunately, I have hurt my spine. This means that I am currently struggling to look after my beautiful garden and do little maintenance jobs. As this is such a wonderful location, near beautiful cities of culture and glorious beaches, I thought someone might like a holiday in exchange for some help. You can also enjoy wonderful, wholesome, local produce in this magical place. Al freso if the weather permits! I am a native English speaker but also speak Dutch. Location is 40 minutes cycling to The Hague or Delft, it is also possible to cycle to numerous trams and buses in the area. Collection from tram/bus possible.

    With my injury, I still volunteer for an NGO, so I often need to do work online every day. Sometimes I might have visitors and guests related to this NGO work but this will not impact your stay in any way. My background is as a tax consultant for a bank but I also have a degree in Psychology and Finance, which I use for my current volunteer work.

    I am a native English speaker, so I can help you improve your language skills - also if you wish to learn Dutch. The period villa is located near beautiful beaches and parks, and bikes are available to borrow. So, for those who wish to enjoy the outdoors, there is plenty to do. For those who love culture, musea and shopping; Delft, The Hague, Rotterdam are all relatively nearby. There is something for everyone, this is a beautiful, tranquil place. I have lived in several countries and love meeting travellers to share stories of adventures and experiences, looking forward to hearing yours and creating some new ones?
