  • Description


    We are looking for skillful helpers, who are able to paint and decorate a room new and help with renovating this room and who do not need a lot of care. We need help with cleaning, ironing, go with the dog, go shopping and so on.
    Further we need help in house and garden (clean and organize rooms, grocery shopping, dogwalk, heating the oven, painting, garden work, cooking, cleaning, ironing and so on).

    Our helpers should be self-organized, skillfull and love to try new things. Our guests get their own room in the house. We appreciate to learn your dishes and talk with each other. We are very busy and hard working, so we really appreciate your help to organize family life. What we further appreciate are people who are really self organized and able to organize their day by themselfes. We are often with clients into the next weeks so it is possible that you have to be hours or some days alone in the house while walking the dog, organizing house and garden. So we offer a good mix between family care and selfdetermined life style in Germany.

    We are: Josh (51), Jana (47), Franz (19).

    It would be nice to have two volunteers here, who speak English and German or Spanish. Whenever our shedule allows us, we love mutual dinner and some english, spanish or german conversations.

    Although wer are as business owners often really busy, we want to learn about your country, your dishes and your cultural background. Maybe you will meet other helpers here and we promise, you'll have fun. We are looking for kind and skillful helpers who want to experience the life in our house.

    We live in our house in a small town south of the German capital Berlin and half an hour near the city of Dresden with a lot of cultural and historic places. Our guests love the Neustadt there in Dresden, thats a quite urban quarter with a lot of pubs and restaurants. Public transportation is available and regularly we go to Dresden by car because we have some clients there. Leipzig is one hour away, you can go directly by train.
    We live in a house surrounded by a garden/yard in a small quite town, the train Station is only five minutes to walk from our house away. Prague is not far, with the bus you only need two or three hours from Dresden.

    If you want to help in house, garden and kitchen, to do the daily (easy) tasks like go with the dog, cooking, prepare the dinner, go to the grocery store, help with cleaning in our house, you are welcome.

    We have not enough time to show you all work, so your creative brain and hands are needed. Is there anybody who loves to talk with an elder lady and see the things which has to be done in a household? So feel free to write. Is there anybody who likes cooking and eating together, please write us. You love to organize your day and your tasks in your own rhythm and very reliable, so let us know.

    Please accept, that we don't want guests who are only look for cheap accommodation or for a five-star-hotel or for a 24-hour-care. We are looking for travelers who "see" things to do, are able to work structured and have a practical mindset and help so to organize our family life.

    In our city you can find supermarkets and all of yours daily need, a railway station, some recreation areas and a lake are 25 minutes away.

    We are exited to get to know you.
