  • Description


    My name is Anette, I backpacked/worked round the world for 23 years and have now settled, enjoying the world coming to me instead of me wandering about. I am a designer and pattern constructor, write a lot and run a small Bed and Breakfast (with no breakfast). In the evenings I usually do my accounts and try to follow up on whatever was not done during the day...
    I live in a fantastic very small village, close to the ocean, beach and forest, great for walking and bicycling. And I would love some help to run my little place. It can be all kinds of chores, from spring cleaning, gardening, polishing windows, playing with my 7 year old daughter and general maintenance.
    You will stay with us and be part of the household, which consist of my daughter, me, our Italian greyhound, that loves to snuggle up in his quilts and blankets and our noisy rabbit and her lovely daughter.
    We will look forward to welcoming you!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will stay with us as part of the small family, that apart from my daughter and me, also consist of our elegant Italian greyhound and a sweet rabbit with a lot of personality, her daughter and the rabbit father. You will get to know the Danish way of living and eating and not to forget HYGGE from the inside.
    It is very important to us, that you want to be a part of the household while you are here. We love to read, draw, play all kinds of games; board games, card games, running-after-one-an-other games, go for walks and pick greens for the rabbits. We also do a lot of skipping!!
    We live healthy and start with oat porridge in the morning at 06.30, lunch (around 20 minutes) consist of the traditional dark bread, smørrebrød and then afternoon tea when my daughter comes home from school. Dinner at 17.30 can be all sorts of things and since we believe in no waste, we also often eat leftovers. Dinner is the last meal of the day. Please note that mobile phones are not invited to join us while we eat. Also I have to note that we eat all kinds of meat, diary products, and what ever the earth provides us and can therefore not accommodate vegans.
    We live in a very beautiful countryside, quiet and filled with stars at night. It is very quiet here and there is lots of time for reflection and contemplation.

  • Help


    I am looking for someone who can help with general maintenance, cleaning, gardening, polishing windows, playing with my daughter, all-round chores. We usually work from 09-14 and sometimes we work together and sometimes you are on our own, depending on the chore.

    The upcoming project are apart from the above mentioned, making cupboards and repairing and painting the fence and moving an old flowerbed, which means digging up and removing a lot of soil. Also one of the apartments needs to be painted.

    You will take part in the normal cleaning of the house, which we usually do on Friday afternoon or in the weekend.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    During time of, there is plenty of opportunity to read and there is lots of literature in English, Portuguese and Italian on my bookshelf, that you are welcome to enjoy. There is lots of tracks for walking, bicycling and going to the beach and the small cliffs nearby (a lot of tourist come to do just that) and then quite a bit goes on in the local community during summer.
    We have a nice garden to relax in, a hammock in the living room and then the rabbits likes to be cuddled with.
