  • Description


    Hey !

    We are a young easy going family living in central Umeå, north of Sweden.

    The family consists of four people, including three children age 4, 2 years and our youngest 2 months old.

    We are easy going people with mild to laughter and conversation. We like to learn more about other people, their culture and language.

    We live in a large townhouse within walking distance to the downtown core , filled with shopping, restaurants and cafés.

    What we need help with is, housekeeping, childcare and other simple household chores .

    We like to consider you as part of our family and of course we will show you the best part of Umeå and its activities:)

    Hopefully you have the same attitude and want to teach us about your country , your language , your culture.

    Best regards.
