    Hey People!

    Yes we can accept 1new workaway-er! Starting from DECEMBER 20 (21) - this year 2020.
    (if everybody comes who said they will be coming over)
    From the 3 rooms there is one free again from 20 december, your own room!

    YES YOU CAN COME OVER! Just be safe in your travels!
    If you want to have a Christmas / New year workaway experience, you are most welcome!


    Especially looking for nanny/childcare! Helping hands in general maintenance.

    *If you are Belgian, and are getting crazy alone in a apartment with lockdown, you can join our family too!

    *We have space for tents / campers if needed! (also for short stay)


    Hey there!
    We are a family based in Aalter, Bellem.
    We are mid 30's, have 2 energetic kids. (Girl 9 in september and boy 8 in november both 4th grade at school)

    We Both are self employed - entrepreneurs, meaning we're quit Busy.
    We have plenty of space tot host workaway travellers, in exchange for help with kids and household/maintenance.
    We can host up to 3 people at the time, we prefer 2 people at once for long term. And we keep 1 room for last minute people who look for a solution or whatever reason - short time stay.

    We have 1 youngster staying in for 6 months - Braam. Specialist in meditation & an actor.
    So for now we have 1 room for Long stay workaway, and 1 smaller room for last minute people.
    Next to that we can always arrange some extra space, if you are in need... you can call us.

    We're building a new ecological house, we already live there. Ground level is practically ready, we still have a lot of work at first floor and outside. Next that we have the Pharmacy & the "hostel" for workaway travelers.

    So most of the time you can find jobs all over the place, kids & homework, general maintenance, housekeeping..

    We do not count hours, we do not ask you all the time to do the chores... We look for people who see what needs to be done, plan it a bit by themselves. Open communication about your plans for visiting cities & being away from "home", or ideas for organizing stuff on an other way. We want people to become a part of the family! That's what happens with most of our visitors, they are always welcome to come back! And most of them we keep in contact for long time or they revisit.

    On both houses we have good internet connection, digital nomads can perfectly stay with us.

    If you are couple, please think of what your reason is for traveling. We really look for people who want to connect to the family. Not 'just' workawayers.
