  • Description


    I am an International Citizen who has lived and worked in many parts of the world and I enjoy hosting guests and friends from all over. I moved to Berlin in 2016 and am now renting rooms on this very special and beautiful location in the heart of Berlin.

    I have a small garden in front of the boat which requires a bit of attention, different paint jobs need to be done in- and outside the boat periodically, wood cutting and stapling.... and all kinds of small, fun DIY projects.

    This year, the outside paint of the boat needs to be refreshed (rather simple job), some painting inside to freshen up. And I will need help to build a raised flower bed in the garden. All of this once Corona in the world eases up of course....

    Berlin is a fascinating city that has a lot to offer. If you are interested in spending some time there but do not have much money - this is the best opportunity. The boat is centrally located and well connected to public transport.

  • Help


    At the moment I am looking for someone end of September to help finish the second coat of paint on the deck, help with stacking wood and prparing the garden.

  • Accommodation


    The boat is beautifully furnished and offers all amenities. The two guest rooms are usually rented online to people looking for a special place to stay, but will be reserved for helpers during arranged times. There is a lovely kitchen and home made food will be provided throughout the stay.
