  • Description


    I finish a house project, maintaining my parents house and need help in my apartment in the city center. One house is in the archipelago of Stockholm, near Vaxholm. If you check Skyscanner you can often find cheap flights to one of the four airports around Stockholm.
    I also have a summer house in the beautiful High cost some 5 hours north of Stockholm.

    You are probably 22 years or older and have some hands-on experiences in the areas that I need help in, but don´t be afraid of asking. I answer everyone!
    Of course, I provide food for three good meals a day and sticking to the max 25-hour working week, usually much less. I had to write this since some people have other worse experiences with other hosts...

    Based on my experience, what I really looking for is people that can do anything below to a high standard.
    Carpentry skills. Framing, plastering, painting, electricity, and plumbing.
    Mechanic professionals
    Gardening and landscape architecture
    Cleaning and having attention to details.
    Cooking skills

    Due to the wide variety of tasks, I sometimes have many volunteers at the same time, especially during the summer season.
    I also spend time in my apartment in the city center where I also need help. You will have your own room there too.

    I also need someone to help me with my Spanish and I also want to practice Russian. volunteering hours can be agreed on and is flexible.

    In the summer it is a nice place to go swimming, canoeing, bicycle and local sight-seeing. We also have a private waterfront. It is possible to do water sports and I have Quad bikes. It is the perfect spot to discover the Stockholm archipelago on day trips and at the same time have the possibility to visit Stockholm city on free days.
    At times I also need help to maintain my parents house and my apartment in Stockholm city center.

    I also will have special Swedish evening with typical food and tell about our traditions. I will provide all type of healthy food, three meals a day, mostly Eco, grocery store on the island open daily. Very good limitless WiFi provided and a living room for watching TV and movies. Accommodation will be in your own room. Typically I have 2-4 volunteers staying and occasionally visits by friends and family.

    I love to travel myself, I have been to 121 countries so there are stories to share. I like to socialize and want to create a travel-friendly atmosphere for volunteers.

Nice general areas for watching tv or just read a book. Spacious outdoor patio with a grill. I also like to arrange Swedish evening where I share our culture and typical Swedish food. In my Stockholm city center apartment there is an extra room for workawyers.
