  • Description


    We are a family of 6 members, our house is situated on a hill in a little village near Karlovac, Croatia. There is a river for swimming few kilometers from our house, seaside is an hour and a half car ride away. Our kids are age 26, 24, 21 and 17. The youngest child lives with us, and the older ones come to visit every once in a while. Also, my father is often around, he is 85 years old.
    My husband and I have travelled a lot and now we welcome travellers from all around the world to share experiences and make friends.
    We have 2 dogs and 3 cats, so travellers with pets are welcome, if they get along with other animals.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We would like to show you how you can live and travel with a small amount of money, without hurry and stress. We would teach you how to live in nature, work with animals and gardens, how to make small repairs around the house. We are also beekepers so if you are not afraid of bees we can teach you how to work with bees and get honey. I also make homemade jams and juices and I know much about herbs and medical plants so if you are interested I would also teach you that and more.
    We are religious so if you are too, we can share thoughts and experiences in that field.

  • Help


    We need help with mowing the lawn, keeping the backyard and garden in order (planting vegetables and flowers, mowing etc) and small repairs around the house (helping with fixing a fence for ex.)..
    I also plan on making two places around the house for relaxing, so I could use some help with making a diy bench and table, and maybe a gazebo.
    We expect you to work, 4 or max 5 hours a day, never more than 5 days a week.
    This spring, from march, we will be having some bigger working actions around the house (such as building of the gazebo, preparing the garden for planting season, and other repairs around the house) but again, you will not work for more than 5 hours a day.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    My husband works away from home but we spend most of our time at home, expecially in the summer.
    The city Karlovac is famous for having 4 rivers, we would be happy to show you around. Zagreb is also very close, and so is the Adriatic sea.
    We welcome travellers of all ages and countries, we always welcome guests to our home.
    *️Since opening our page on workaway we had over 10 workawayers, and since we are a big family with small income, we disscused it with our workawayers, and we would be grateful if you would take the time and chip in, by chosing one of your traditional meals, and preparing it for all of us on one day of your stay. Of course we will be glad to help you with preparing and learning about your cousine.
