  • Description


    We are a family of five. Thomas, Sandra and our three girls born between 2005 and 2012. We live in a house with garden in the east of Berlin, some 30 min away from the centre. We have returned to Berlin last year after living in New Zealand and Sweden as well as Georgia in the Southern Caucasus.

    We are just starting out as host and have to find out, whether this concept is working for everyone in our family. So for the beginning, we start with:
    - Women only!
    - one person
    - 2-4 weeks

    We do not smoke and ask that you do not smoke in our house. You are allowed to smoke in the garden. No use of drugs and heavy alcohol consume accepted!

    We eat everything, but try to reduce out intake of meat. So if you are vegetarian, we are happy to learn from you. We have no allergies what so ever. So we are not prepared to provide you with special diets.

    We have bees living on the garage roof, a hamster in the house and two rabbits in the garden.

    Saturday and Sunday you are free. You should plan your days and be prepaired to organize your own meals.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We can teach you some German. It would be nice to sit together and chat or cook together. You will also have time to conquer Berlin.

    Around the house
    There is always work to do around the house. (Hoovering, laundry, cleaning windows, cooking (we would love you to cook for us at least once), grocery shopping)

    teach languages
    It would be awesome, if you can practise English and/or Swedish with the children. It is just about speaking with them - actually to all of us.

    We try to manage ourselves, but you will be asked to pick up the younger ones from school from time to time.

    If you are an enthusiastic gardener, perfect. There is definitly room for improvement in our garden.

    Woodworking, renovating, painting projects
    I have usually always some wood working projects going on or something to paint/renovate.

    Just write, what you have to offer and we will see how things fit in. But there will be always some cleaning the house required.
