We are a family of 2 people (me and my husband) and the most adorable dog (mini poodle called Mimi).
We are currently starting an online business and need someone to help us around the house (cleaning, cooking, helping us learn Bulgarian, and potentially playing with me on some creative projects - depends on your interests).
We offer a private room in a countryside house and food. I drive to Sofia often and there is also a train connection (45min trip into the center).
My name is Marusha, I'm from Slovenia and I'm a very creative person. I love to perform (sing, dance, act), practice music (I'm learning piano and ukulele, but also have a guitar at home), network and communicate with like-minded people, doing various creative projects, and enjoying life in general...
David, my husband, is a data scientist from the United States. He's a very simple man who just opened his own business and I am doing my best to support him on his journey. He loves good food, walks in nature, and spends a lot of time working on the computer. He's a tech-y guy :P
Mimi, our dog, is a mini poodle (anti-allergenic breed) and she is the sweetest little pup.
She loves to play, explore, eat, cuddle and nap! If you're an animal person you will definitely enjoy her company...

Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We can share our everyday routines and life's stories! You could improve your English or learn some Slovenian... eat yummy dishes or share your recipes, join my spontaneous adventures and creative projects (I meet friends and musicians often and we play music, I enjoy throwing private parties and culinary, musical evenings at our house, I'm experimenting with photography and filmmaking, go hiking sometimes, etc.)
We are looking for an open-hearted Bulgarian (but open to foreigners too!) who has good communication skills. If you consider yourself a passionate, creative person who could help us in our daily lives, we'd love to arrange a quick meeting or call to see if we'd be a good fit!
So basically we're looking for someone who is...
- loving and open to meet new people
- good at speaking English and willing to teach us Bulgarian
- eager to share their skills, passions, and stories
- creative in their own way and curious to join some projects around the house with me
- doesn't mind cleaning, cooking, and occasional grocery store shopping
- fond of dogs and nature
This host offers a language exchange
We would love to learn how to speak Bulgarian. I already understand quite a lot, but I'm not good at speaking. I can help you upgrade your English or I can teach you some Slovenian words and expressions.
own bedroom in a 2-floor house with a big backyard, in a small mountain village, 45min from Sofia
You'll have plenty of time off as well, to explore the nature around us, you could also borrow our car at times.
I go to Sofia often, you could come with me (to concerts, dance classes, jam sessions, etc.) and sometimes I invite some friends over to play music and hang out...
We'll arrange a schedule that will work for all of us.
All we ask for is honesty, genuine communication, and help around the house.
