  • Description


    Hey, we are a family of three and after a few years over sea we are settling into our new temporary house just outside of the city Groningen. As we both found jobs we are currently looking for some one who can help us out with household chores, cooking and looking after our 8 months old daughter.

    Our house is in a small village, 20 minutes from Groningen. We have a big garden with apple trees, a green house with grapes, there are also trees with pears and figs. (Oh and some garden beds that could use some love, so if you have green fingers don’t be shy). Our house has four bedrooms, we’re sleeping downstairs with our baby and upstairs we have a guest bedroom and a storage/ office room. There’s a big living room and a separate kitchen downstairs.

    Also there is an unused chicken coop... if you have knowledge about how to get this running it’s a big plus, not a must! :)

    We would like to offer a fair work-life-travel ratio, to accommodate a healthy, nurturing and honest life.

    If you like the countryside, yet being close to the city this could be a place for you.
