  • Description


    We are a very active family of 5 living just a 30 min train journey away from Hamburg City. My husband is 59 this year and I will be 55. Our children are teenagers. (2 boys 16,14 and a girl 12). You would have private accommodation consisting of 2 rooms and a bathroom with facilities to make coffee/Tea and keep food cool. This little flat is part of our house with a big garden. We also have two dogs (Labrador/Jack Russell) who love to be walked. The children play Hockey/Tennis and I (Mom) play tennis and do a fair amount of running.

    We would like someone who can drive and holds a driver's liscence. Also we are planning to do some maintenance on the house like renovating a balcony/Painting. Gardening experience could also come in handy.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Hamburg is a large (the largest apart from Berlin) City in the North of Germany. It is quite stunning and also very open and international - due to its port. Language Courses are easily available and it is easy to meet new people. Hamburg is full of fun things to do (museums, concerts, architecture and sports). From time to time we like to explore Hamburg with our guests. We expect a normal contribution to household work and will require driving/shuttling the kids around.
