  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of three, myself, my husband, and our son (18). We have two projects, one project is close to Stockholm-our main family home, the other is our summerhouse in the Stockholm archipelago. We need help with small building tasks and help to maintain the garden. Both places are in great locations. The mainland house is in between Stockholm Arlanda Airport and Stockholm City Center. The island house in the archipelago is easy to reach with a free ferry from the mainland (Vaxholm). The island is called Rindö.
    While you are staying with us, you will stay at the island house, which is approximatly 1 hour from the family house. Thats why we won´t be able to eat every meal together, but we try as often as possible. You will get here freedom and responsibility :-)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our family home is perfect to visit Stockholm city. It takes 10 minutes by train to get to the city centre, by bike around 30 minutes.
    In the summer months, the island is a nice place to go swimming, fishing, cycling, kayaking, hiking, relaxing. There is a pizzeria and a shop on the island. Lots of nature and wildlife: deer, badgers, foxes seen in the garden.
    We like to have a friendly win-win situation, and our workaways are supposed to have a good time here : )
