I am finishing a house project, maintaining my family's houses, and need help in my apartment in the city center of Stockholm. One house is in the archipelago of Stockholm, near Vaxholm.
I also have a house on the beautiful High coast some 4 hours north of Stockholm by car or train. That far north you also have a pretty good chance to see the Aurora Borealis.
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 are people that can do some of the things below.
Cleaning and having attention to details.
Cooking and baking
Gardening and landscaping
Carpentry skills like plastering, painting, electricity, and plumbing.
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 private room there too.
I also need someone to help me with my Spanish and I also want to practice Russian.
In the summer you can go swimming, canoeing, bicycle, and local sight-seeing. We also have a private waterfront in the archipelago.
Vaxholm is a good start to explore the Stockholm archipelago on day trips and at the same time have the possibility to visit Stockholm city on free days.
I also will have special Swedish evenings with typical food and tell about our traditions.
I will provide all types of healthy food, three meals a day.
Very good limitless WiFi provided and a living room for watching TV and movies. Accommodation will be in your private cozy 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.
Let me know if you have any questions!

I want to practice my Spanish and I am happy to teach Swedish.
Plenty of space for workawayers in all locations. Nice general areas for watching TV or just read a book. Spacious outdoor patio with a grill. I also like to arrange the Swedish evening where I share our culture and typical Swedish food. In my Stockholm city center apartment, there is one extra room for workawayers.
Tons of things to do in Stockholm of course, Vaxholm is a perfect spot to explore the Stockholm archipelago, swim, hike, running, walk the forest, bike rides, having a drink in a local joint, fishing, etc. It is also possible to get to the city center of Stockholm and back on the same day by frequent public transport. Boat or bus.
In the north, there are fantastic hiking, nice mountains, climbing and a good chance to see the Aurora. I will show you around if you want to.
