We are an English speaking couple in our sixties living in the countryside 30 minutes away from Amsterdam centre. We are a friendly and positive couple with 2 cats living in a 4 bedroom house with a huge garden.
We operate a small business from home using the Internet.
We always need help with getting our garden in order as well as general maintenance. We need real gardeners that know what they are doing. We live in a beautiful area called Het Gooi and we are surrounded by lakes, rivers and canals. Perfect for canoeing, sailing, biking and hiking but close to Amsterdam and Utrecht
DIY and building projects
Amsterdam is a real cultural destination. Also the village we live in hosts many arts and cultural events. we speak English, Dutch and French.
We need expert help with gardening and lake grooming and general maintenance especially some painting and some carpentry..

Biking and trains are an easy way to get around Holland. Nothing is very far and the land is flat so easy biking. Lots of history and culture around us. Major cities such as Utrecht, Amsterdam and Den Haag only 30 mins awy. We will lend you bikes so you can cycle to the nearest train station (about 20mins) or bus stop (about 10mins). we ask that you provide a personal reference prior to arriving.
