  • Description


    Hi, We're Stephen & Izzy-American's living in Nürnberg!
    Whether you want to study German, explore European travel, improve your English (for EFL), apply for local jobs, or just make new friends, Nürnberg is a great place to live!
    We are a mid-40s newly married couple buying a home. My husband works for a German company. I'm a school teacher. My husband and I enjoy weekend traveling, exploring, and hanging out at the park with our French bulldogs.
    The Work: Right now the work would be cooking, cleaning, and puppy/dog care. Later we will be doing renovation work on a different apartment.

    Length of stay is flexible.
    ***You must research covid tourism travel restrictions for your location, coming to ours! We can discuss this more... :-)

    We enjoy weekend traveling, exploring, and hanging out at the park with our French bulldog.

    Due to covid, many restrictions might be in place. Currently most things are open, but masks are required indoors. This may change if numbers increase. (curfews group size for meet-ups, restaurants returning to take-out only etc). And there are high fines for violations!!

    There are many wonderful things in and around Nürnberg for exploration! (WWII sites, castles, markets, hiking, biking, etc.)

    ABOUT the work. (flexibility is key!!)
    Right now we need someone to cook Marley Spoon meals (that have the recipes in German and English), cleaning, and help with our puppy.
    Let's chat soon and see if this would be a good fit! :-)
    *Please note that the comments from previous workawayers about a special/complicated dog named Zeke would not be relevant as that dog is no longer here. Our new dogs are VERY VERY well behaved!! :-)

  • Accommodation


    We live in a luxury apartment near Fredrich Ebert Platz Ubahn station. You would have your own room with a double bed and a bathroom with shower/tub. The bathroom also has the washer and dryer so it's a shared bathroom only for laundry. We have our own bathroom next to our bedroom.
    All other space (kitchen, loft, tv, living room, loggia) is shared space!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Once we start renovations on the new-to-us apartment the work will be this: We need help with DIY renovation. (carpet removal, adhesive removal, sanding, painting, replacing hardware and fixtures in bathroom, laying hardwood floors, terrace fix-up, kitchen assembly.) We might also possibly need help moving depending on timing.
    The work would often, but not always, be a team effort-you, along with my husband and I and other workawayers!
    (and an option to stay at the other apartment will also be possible...where you'd have more room, but less furnishings)
