  • Description


    Hi there! My husband and I live in a house with our cat, dog and two ducks in an idyllic little town in Germany. We are right around the corner from a quaint little castle that is situated in a beautiful park. In your free time, you can go to the harbor and watch boats go by while sipping a hot cocoa or take a train to other major cities nearby.

    We would love to have someone come and help us with keeping up with the ducks and cleaning around the house a bit. In summer, we have plenty of fruits and veggies available and are happy to share.

    We offer a private bedroom and shared bathroom. If we are away on vacation, you'll have the house to yourself (minus our pets). We speak English and German at home and are very welcoming of people from all different backgrounds. This is a safe space for women, families or members of the LGBT community.
