We are a family of 5 - Evelin & Daniel, both tour guides in Israel, and our twin boy & girl, almost 3 years old our baby girl, 13 months old. Our life is all about fun, work as well as our family life. We live in the area of Haifa, the third biggest city in Israel.
Our kids are a lot of fun and love playing and entertainment and we want to expose them to new languages. In addition, we have a lovely and playful dog named Charlie.
We are an open-minded culturally mixed family. Evelin is German, Daniel was born in Russia and we live in a Druze Village. We find cultural exchange makes a big difference in people's lives and we are the best example as we met this way. We are looking for friendly people who'd like to join the family and help (with kids - reading, talking, playing and also helping at home). It's a great way to experience Israeli culture and travel around as well.
Babysitting and creative play

Help around the house
You will have a great family experience! You can learn & see as much as you want about Israel, Israeli culture, food, sights, music, Hebrew, babies, dogs and more. If you want you can also learn about tourism, marketing, guiding & more, as we have a lot of tasks here every day. We used to be travelers as well and are very open-minded and interested to meet new people and learn from them and teach them about our culture. There is a lot to experience and learn from what you can't see if you just walk around with your backpack for a few days. As tour guides, we have even more in-depth knowledge of Israeli History, Religion and culture, if you are curious beyond a cultural exchange. We support you in your wish to travel, help you plan, give you free time and supply tons of information. On the other hand, we would just love to learn about your lifestyle and include you in our home. Staying at a mixed German-Israeli family in a Druze Village will provide you with many interesting angles to see and enrich your cultural knowledge.
We need help with a mix of the following tasks:
1. babysit the kids: playing with the kids, reading to them, helping bath and dress them
2. help at home: cleaning up after dinner, prepare a meal here and there, simple help at home.
Cleaning is done every couple of days together.
Help is usually required in the morning before they go to kindergarten (to prepare them & bring them, maybe do a walk with them) and when they come back late afternoon/before they go to bed.
Your key-characteristic should be being initiative - with the kids as well as helping at home.
The time in between is free and you can use it for hiking around or doing day trips around in the area.
We are located in a quiet village next to the city of Haifa which is a great place to explore. From our place you can reach many destinations like Tel Aviv, Haifa, Acco, Nazareth, you can spend a few hours there and use your free time.
As we are tour guides you are at the best information base for planning trips and we can give you a ride sometimes. You could take a couple of days in a row to see places farther away like Jerusalem etc.
You will stay in your own private room which has a double bed and air-conditioning. It has its own door to the yard and two windows. Our apartment has two bathrooms. It's a 200 square meter apartment and has one room only for hats! So it's very spacious and we have a yard and a small garden as well. Right next to us is the Carmel Forest Scenic Path. You can have all your meals at home. We don't always cook.
In your free time you can travel around the country, we are going to provide you with all the information needed and give you the time to travel as well. In the middle of the day you can use public transportation and to Haifa, Akko, Nazareth, Tel Aviv or other places. On the weekends you can go to Jerusalem and the Dead Sea, have a weekend in Tel Aviv to party or in Eilat at the Read Sea, etc. or just stay at home.
