  • Description


    Hi there !
    ( Only female workawayers pls)

    We like to have workawayers around because of the cultural exchange and language learning& practicing english. And sometimes we need somebody to take care our pets when we are away for some short trips.

    The help here is not really hard help , more like helping for the house maintainance, daily cleaning, tidying, basic garden care, helping for the cat and dog if it is necesary. You will have lots of time for your-self.

    There is no garden work in winter.

    We are a Turkish family of 3 , who live in Urla Torasan area in İzmir where located near the sea side of Turkey .
    Daughter Ela ( born in 2009 ) does not need child-care anymore on daily basis but would be nice her to chat and practice some english as much as she can with workawayer. She is learning english and we would love her to practice more.

    We have internet connection and satellite at home so you can keep contact easily with your parents or friends .

    We can eat together ( Breakfast&Dinner) . You can cook for all of us sometimes ( we really enjoy it ) if you want to but this is not we expect from you on everyday basis. But helping setting the table and tidying after eating, putting things in the dishwasher is expected :)

    If you are seeking peaceful place for reading , walking by the sea , cycling , doing yoga may be the place is best for you . The sea-side is just 500 m. by walk. The sunset is just beautiful.

    Also there is public transportation to Urla town center every 30 min . till 18.30 . ( Thre is bus stop for Urla just by the housing complex)

    To Izmir center there is bus and minibus service ( if you walk 10 min to the bus stop ) Takes about 1 hour

    We expecting tidy , pet-friendly female workawayers . ( We have a dog in the garden and a cat in the house )
