We are a young, vibrant and open-minded family of 3 with a 2 year old daughter. He is Canadian and she is Dutch. We love to travel, eat good food, dance, philosophical conversations, a good laugh and etc. We qualify ourselves as hedonistic and almost hippie like people. The best match for us would be someone who is capable and enjoys opening themselves up in the benefit of bonding with your host.
We live in Amsterdam 10 minute biking from Central Station. The area has quite a lot of stores and supermarket nearby. Also it's near a metro station to get to the rest of the city. We have an available room with a double size bed that is also used as an office. We are omnivores but about 2/3 of our meals do cater to vegan or vegetarians.
We are still trying to find what is the best profile of people for us. It would be mainly babysitting, cleaning after the baby, general house cleaning, a little community garden maintenance, maybe helping in small various projects like party preparation and etc.
Please feel free to ask more information.
