  • Description


    I'm a German pensioner living in Turkey for most of the year. I live in a small house in a holiday village near Manavgat, close to the sea. We have a big pool and the village is like a garden or park. It's in the middle of a nature-reserve, so the next towns are at least 4 km away. We are surrounded by fields and woods, the Mediterranean sea is 1 km away with our own private beach.
    In our village there are several neighbours from Germany/Holland/Belgium but most neighbours are from Istanbul/Ankara, they spend their summer holidays here.

    Only females or couples, please!

  • Help


    Help in the house: cleaning (6 cats in the house) , washing, cooking ( you don't need to be a cook but be able to follow recipes, weigh all the food and write down gram and calories).
    Pull some weeds in the garden and cut withered flowers.
    For winter (November 2024 till beginning of March) I need a house- / catsitter, cause I'll be away during that time.
    All you have to do then is to keep the house in order and feed and cuddle the kitties

    With your time off you can do as you like, stay with me on the terrace or go to the pool (opens end of May) or beach or make excursions. The next bus stop is 3 km away, take the bus to Manavgat or Side or Alanya or Antalya or where ever you like.
