  • Description


    My name is Denise and I am the owner of a animal boutique and dog grooming saloon. I have 3 dogs, a bird, and some chickens. I am born in the Netherlands and came to live in Sweden in December 2012. I live in a house that is located in a neighborhood on the outskirts of a small village called Hagfors. The neighborhood is fairly quite with a mix of older people and young family's. As I am one of the last houses on the street my house is very close to the edge of the forest. In my free time I like to go out and roam in the forest with my dogs, visit friends and take it easy and watch tv.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As I live so close to the forest there is a lot of nature to explore. There are several kind of activities you can do around here. Such as canoeing, moose safari, horseback riding, visiting Karlstad...As this is a big country a car or at least a drivers license so you can rent a car i a big plus.

  • Help


    As I work a lot I need help with the day to day shores that need to be done in the house. Such as vacuuming, dusting, laundry etc. I also have a small vegetable garden that needs to be taken care of during spring and summer months and mowing the lawn. In the winter it will be snow shoveling. Cleaning the chicken coop and the occasional walk with the dogs if have to be away for the whole day. As I am still renovating the house their are things that need to be done. So if you have building/renovating skills you can:
    *️️Renovate my bedroom. A wall need to taken out, a big closet build, new flooring and new wallpaper.
    *️️in the livingroom/eating area a big cabinet needs to be build.
    *️️new flooring on the upstairs hallway
    *️️ some finishing touches in the kitchen, toilet, living room

    During the summer there are a lot off outdoor activitys you ca do. Horsebak riding, kanoeing, hike some trail in the forest. There are some nice small citys to vistit as well that will give you teh old country feeling of Sweden. In the winter we have some different kind of skislopes. And I would reccomend a city trip to Goteborg and/or Stockholm.
