    Nederlanders welkom!

    At the moment we are looking short term for someone to housesit the house and take care of the animals.

    If you are naturally organised and like to organise and declutter this position might suit you!
    It is very important that you are not afraid of chickens and are able to vatch them and hold them.
    If you have no experiece with chickens and are generally good with animals and are not afraid to learn how to handle chickens that could work too.

    If you like to learn more about the Marie Kondo method then we might be the ideal host for you!

    We're family with Mom, Dad, two sweet girls age 11 and 7, two cats, chickens and two rabbits.

    Mom is an author. Dad is a teacher at aviation engineering. Girls play bassoon, harp, love horses and have many playdates.

    The Konmari method is super effective. After your experience here you can put it on your CV and go help other people who choose to work with it.
    If you are interested to learn what its like to run a small family, this would be a great opportunity! In fact we have had several young couples coming over who like to experience what it's like.

    Delft is in the "green heart". Meaning miles and miles of green Dutch landscape to explore.

    We will do our best to help fulfill your wishes and needs.

    Very important: you must not be afraid to catch and handle chickens.
    We may need you to do somehousesitting when we are away in which case you need to be able to handle the chickens.

    You would not typically be a part of the family.
    We're looking for a Dutch person or native English speaker. You would mainly help to keep the house clean and tidy. Help with food prep. Be proactive about decluttering projects.

    The rest is a bit of everything needed to run the household: Tidying up, laundry,
    Driving children to school on occasion.

    Occasional babysitting.
    Volunteering hours an average of 5 hour per day so 25 hours per week.

    Other tasks depends on your skills and wants and our needs.
