  • Description


    Hello We are a couple who gave up our careers in Istanbul and started a wonderfull and relaxing new life with our daughter in Ayvalık . I am Nurgun and My husband Okan have a 12 years daughter Deniz . And we have a cat.

    we live in Ayvalık at the agean coast of Turkey with full of history and nature. Me and My husband are dealing with craft things. At the moment I design metal jewelery and my husband makes mosaics and he is a bike lover .

    we are easygoing people and like meeting people from different cultures. We have a house with a small garden. We like spending time at the seaside in summer time. Ayvalık has a long sandy coast and you can enjoy swiming in the summer .

    Bike is available to explore the area, we can guide you if you like .

    we are looking for a workawayer who will spend time with our daughter as her big sister speak English with her and will be a part of our family.

    guest must be ok with pets , especially not allergic to cats.

    Occasional smoking is not an issue long as you smoke in the garden and donot smoke in the house nor near our daughter. Heavy smokers not welcome.
