    We are a family of four - our daughters are one and four years old. We are raising them bilingual (and with your help, hopefully trilingual).

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    If you want to wake up to the sound of birds (and cicadas!) chirping, have breakfast on the balcony while soaking in the sea view, then walk to the beach, Bodrum marina, Ottoman shipyard, Gümbet centre, Myndos Gate, Halicarnassus Mausoleum (everything is within walking distance!), or simply lounge by the pool in the condo complex, look no further :) We usually swim in the sea by mid-October, so hopefully, you will feel like on summer vacation if you visit soon.

    We would like to host a native English speaker to babysit/play with the children at home Monday-Friday between 13:00 and 17:00 or 18:00. I will be at home (likely in another room, but always available) during those hours. Given the kids' age, we don't expect structured ESL classes, just regular communication in English (without screen time) during lunch and playtime. We have books, toys, and art supplies that our guest can use with the girls. We prefer nonsmokers and nondrinkers.

    This host offers a language exchange
    We follow the “one person, one language” method while raising our children, so we need a third person to talk with them in English.

  • Accommodation


    Our guest will have a private room with a single bed and a wardrobe. He/she/they can eat with us (lacto-ovo-pescatarian, but mainly plant-based diet) or use the kitchen to prepare meals in the case of dietary restrictions.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The condo complex is situated in Eskiçeşme, between the Bodrum marina and Gümbet. The Halicarnassus ancient walls and Bodrum's 18th-century windmills are visible from the living room. You can reach most of the city's landmarks on foot. You can take the Bodrum-Bardakçı (2-57) minibus for a short ride to the main bus station.

    I used to be a Workawayer, so I know how guests can feel deprived of their well-deserved me-time due to the living arrangement. With that in mind, apart from 4-5 hours of babysitting on workdays, our guests will be perfectly free to retreat to their private room and encouraged to go out to explore the city. Of course, they can also join us during our daily visits to the playground/beach or meals and family time in the shared areas whenever/if they wish.

    We only need help in the afternoon, so the rest of the time our guest will be able to work/study remotely or relax in the privacy of his/her/their room. Apart from very occasional power outages, the wi-fi is stable.
