*Please note!* When contacting us, please tell us what it is that attracts you to our family in particular. :-)
We are a Swedish family who enjoy discovering different cultures and get to know new people. Before starting a family both my husband and I have been travelling a lot and also lived abroad for several years (Spain, UK, Norway, Bali, Argentina). We have two children, Alicia almost 6, and Hedda, 2,5 as well as two cute rabbits (living outside in the garden).
We are looking for a person with a good command of English, Spanish or Swedish who can help us with household jobs : cooking vegetarian/vegan food, helping out with the kids (play ground, painting, playing, etc), cleaning, rabbits, watering plants and general gardening chores (e.g, planting veggies, cutting bushes and trees, harvesting apples - and making apple chips ;) ), etc.
Some painting jobs and smaller projects can occur depending of the season. Cooking skills are a merit since we strive to eat healthy and organic! We are a food loving family and we really enjoy trying out new recipes and make healthy snacks:))
As a family we like to spend time together, sharing a good meal, discover new places with our bikes (you can borrow your own), exercising, reading and learning about health and taking part of all the cultural activities in the beautiful city of Karlstad. Our daughters also love music, singing and dancing!:)
In Karlstad we live in the very centric neighbourhood Marieberg. This neighbourhood is famous for offering the perfect combination between city life and nature. E.g you have 10 min walk to Karlstad Central Station and city centre (shops, cafés, restaturants, cinema etc) as well as 3-4 min to one of the cities main attractions, Mariebergsskogen, where you find beautiful walking trails, animal park, beaches and cafés and restaurants. With 3-4 min distance you also get to the lake Vänern (Sweden´s largets lake) where you can swim, lend canoe´s, etc.
We live in a big beautiful house where we occupy the first floor for our family. Apart from our family we also rent out part of the house to tenants.
I am a stay at home mum & my husband works at a IT company. We are both social & open minded and would love to take part in a cultural exchange program like this. The kids are very easy going & love to meet new friends:)
How it works? We offer you your own room and provide food during your stay. You help us 4-5 hours a day 5 days a week, excluding cooking and cleaning up after meals (which we all help out with).
We are social and friendly, and we want you to ENJOY your stay while contributing to the daily chores. We are happy to offer tips for outings or take you along with us when we go on outings and activities!:)
