    We are a family of four. Mum, dad and two children.
    Mum and dad are really busy, hard working, self-employed parents. Dad has his own company for printing and packaging development. Mum is psychotherapist in own practice. Both of them are away from home most of the time.

    The boy, age 15, is going to school and have a lot of exams at the moment. The Girl, age 19, finished school two years ago and spend the last two month in Irland. In the summer she will start an apprenticeship in another city.

    Furthermore there are two little dogs and two rabbits in the garden.

    We life in a beautiful city, called Wedel. There are a lot of great places to see. There is a pool, theatre, beach with a lovely beach club, a library, and many shopping possibilities.

    Our house is located in a beautiful natural region, with the wood beside the door and great hiking trails.

    We would love to welcome a honest, independent and open minded person.
    Ideally a female person who is able to find work by her self and handle it painstakingly. Its really no hard work.

    We just searching for a person who is able to clean and tidy the house while we are gone, walk the dogs and do light shopping from time to time. It would be a big gain for us, if you are a english or spanish native speaker and can practice your language with our 15 years old son and help him with his homework. This would be a big advantage for us.

    If you are natural loving, flexible and have no problem to be once in a while on your own in the house it will be the perfect place to stay.

    At the moment our daughter is most of the time at home. She is an really open minded person and would love to show you around.
