    Short notice: Sorry that my reply rate is so low. The reason for that is that I disabled my profile for a while and changed my email address inbetween so that I didn´t get the mails anymore when my unavailable time ended. Usually I answer to mails when my profile/calendar is green.

    Hi, I am Beate and I live in a small house in south-west Berlin with my two kids (6 and 7). It is a nice place to live with a (wild) garden in a good neighbourhood. we have a guest room with an extra bathroom (and a tiny extra kitchen). i am very open minded and would like to meet some people from around the world. our house is most of the times very chaotic (as two kids this age are just chaotic and i am not much better ;)).

    The kids are usually just here from tuesday to saturday and then spend two days at their dad´s place.

    as the kids have breakfast and lunch in school and I am often not here or just don´t have big meals we appreciate if everybody cares for his/her own food except the meals we are here alltogether (usually that would be dinner from tuesday to friday and breakfast on saturday - but this can vary a bit). therefore work is usually a bit less (I guess maximum 3-4 hours a day, 5 days a week).

    i probably do not have time for big sightseeing trips, but we could have a good time beeing in the garden a lot, having some ice cream with the kids, having dinner together and maybe cooking together sometimes. probably we can teach you some german (the kids are very good in correcting ;)). but you will definetely have enough time for yourself and due to good public transport it´s easy to reach all parts of berlin.

    i could need some help with the maintenance and the cleaning of the house. little things here and there (mechanical or technical skills very welcome). the garden could need some treatment and love. If you are good in clearing out you could probably help me with this. there is far too much unneeded stuff. I could as well need help with installing the lamps or fitting some racks on the wall. Cooking for us or cooking together could be nice. Maybe even babysitting would be an opportunity if the kids are comfortable with this. or wakling the kids to school and picking them up. there is a lot i can imagine. just write me what you can offer and we will see if it fits :).

    you will have your own room and bathroom in the basement of our house. it´s lovely cool in the summer. there is a big doublebed in the room, so it would be suitable for couples or friends as well.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    you can reach the berlin city center within 20 to 30 minutes. the s1 is the nearest station (s botanischer garten or s lichterfelde west). in the nearby neighbourhood are some grocery stores and a few cafés, but it is not the "berlin night life" center.

    there are some lakes not too far from here, which you can reach with public transportation or a bicycle. the botanical garden and a nice canal and park for walking or running are close as well.

    just non-smokers please!
