  • Description


    We live in a beautiful and quaint dutch sea side town. Amsterdam is about 1 hour away. We live together in a 3 story house so you have your own room in the attic. My little girl is 3 years old and speaks mainly Dutch but its okay for her to learn more English. We are a happy and relaxed family. Easy going. We are relaxed about work hours etc. All in good communication. We like to go on fun outings, a bit of gardening, enjoy nature, music. Mostly eat vegetarian and like an organic lifestyle.

    We are looking for a mature, reliable and independent person to help us out with the daily tasks around the house and garden. shopping, some cooking or laundry and childcare. Its really important you love kids and are experienced with them,, like to play/ be creative etc. If you know Dutch its a plus. Its ideal if you can stay with us for up to 3 months or a bit longer.

    In return you get a separate room for you, a nice cultural exchange and we take you on outings etc. I've been a workawayer myrself so have a good idea about what to offer and what is fun for you to experience.

    We are relaxed people, every day is different. We like dancing, reading, going places, spending time outside, some yoga, eating mostly biological but not too strict. We are well traveled and love learning about new cultures and countries. We like to go and visit places so you are welcome to come along. No smoking, accessive drinking and or drugs please, there is a child living in the house!

    This could also be a set up for someone who maybe is studying parttime in amsterdam? We prefer a longer stay with the right person.
