We are a young, vibrant and open-minded family of 4 with a 2 year old and a 5 month 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 open minded, can step out of the box, 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.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We have a lot to offer in terms of travel experience, languages as we speak French, English, Dutch, Creole, Brazilian Portuguese. We make glorious brunches with friends. Have fun adult costume parties for Halloween. Go out dancing to parties or festivals often. We are quite open physically, mentally and spiritually.
We have a happy and healthy 2 year old child and 5 months old child. The main focus will be for the 5 months old baby. So preference will go with those who have babysat 5 month old babies. Since this is a trial basis, at least one person should be present initially.

The best way to go around is Bike and the city centre is very accessible. We are very open-minded and flexible people. What you do with your off time is up to you.

We think it's important that we can bond with our guest and both can be ourselves around each other.
