  • Description


    Hi there! We are a small family living in rural Austria in a cozy house and a beautiful surrounding (forests, fields and castles included). I am Russian, but speak fluently English, Spanish and some German as well. We have two kids, 4 and 1 year old. My husband is Austrian but he will be away in the next months. We ourselves are big fans of travelling and hosting, easy going and open minded. We did some big travels in the past but lately stay home due to the young age of our kids. If you are familiar with another hosting platform - this is the kind of atmosphere and vibe you will find in the house.

    We live in a small village, some 12 km away from St. Pölten, the capital of Low Austria. This is a great place to spend some time away from the city and enjoy the nature. We live next to a big forest, the Donau river and the beautiful Wachau region is also not far away. We can provide you with a bicycle, and give a lift to the city occasionally. You can reach Vienna by train in just 30 min. from St. Pölten. Occasional car usage would highly depend on your driving skills :) We also have plenty of english, russian, german and spanish books at home and of course internet connection. The best thing about our rural place during this coronatime, is that you can always walk around the village or go to the forest or fields, even during the lockdown!

  • Help


    I am looking for some help with my kids as I will stay alone with them for some months, while my husband will be working abroad. The workload and hours are flexible and open for discussion. Basically it is playing or overlooking the kids while I am at home busy with some other work. You don´t need to have any previous babysitting experience as you will rarely stay alone with them. I will be mostly at home trying to work on my master thesis :)
    Some help with cooking could be included or not, depending on your skills and preferences. You will not need to do any cleaning work around the house.

  • Accommodation


    We live in a small house and currently can host only one workawayer at a time. You will have enough place to sleep or rest on the second floor but not really a private room. This means that during the day the second floor is shared with the kids, who like to play there, but at night you will have it for yourself. We have only one bathroom, combined with a WC and it is on the first floor. We don´t have a garden and smoking is not allowed inside the house.
