    Description

    Hello,
    I am a single mother (1974) living with my 11 years old son (2009) and with our cat (2017).

    We live in Moda, Kadıköy, by the seaside.

    My son had just started to study full time at the best music schools in Turkey. However, Covid-19 freezed his fresh music school life like everyone so it would be nice for him to have musical people around. But it is not a deadly necessity. We have a piano at home. Actually what we really miss is a good cook at home who will be carefull with covid-19 Hygiene Rules and respectfull with our calm and slow life. We are mostly very busy at home, we just think it would be nice to share and eat delicious food other than I cook for a while:)

    We are looking for a honest, reliable and calm housemate,
    + who can cook healthy delicious meals for us. I do the shopping.
    + who can do her/his own house work, i.e. laundry, cleaning the hostal room and the bathroom after using... (so you won't leave me extra house work)
    + will be at peace with us not having a television at home (We don't have one. we watch movies using a projector.)
    + will stay in a room where there is a pull out bed, a little table and a bookshelf full of mostly Turkish books.
    + will be respectful while sharing the house with all the responsibility of security and peace of the home.
    + will come home earlier than 12:00 am. The alarm will be set then and won't be closed untill morning. We can decide when to close in the morning together.
    + will be carefull about the cleaning rules due to covid-19 and use mask while cooking.

    + we would like to host families with children. Unfortunately the room is not big enough for a big family. If you are open to alternatives like children can sleep in my son's bedroom where there is an extra bed or share the couch in the living room... we can figure out other ways.

    PLEASE NOTE THAT, IF YOU SAY I CANNOT COOK AND I DO NOT WANT TO USE THE KITCHEN, ONLY THE ROOM TO STAY (AND TO WASH YOUR CLOTHS AND BATHROOM FACİLİTİES) WE MAY FIND ALTERNATİVE WAYS WHEN TALKİNG.

    Hello

    As housework, you will be responsible from your own housework; a good example for my son:)

    My son is tired of my cooking which I am not the best :) So if you can cook delicious healthy food, we would be very happy. I buy the ingredients and everything.

    Please come earlier than 12:00 am at night. I set the alarm to sleep secure at nights. We close the alarm in the morning.

    You will be inside the active life of Kadıköy Moda, where you can go anywhere in İstanbul easily with all transportation means, by bus, by dolmuş, by steamship, by metro, by train... Also you can travel inside Kadıköy by the nostalgic tramcar which passes by our house every 10 minutes. You can use the electric scooters which you can hire everywhere by an application on your phone and a credit card. We use them a lot and would be glad to show you all.
