  • Description


    I am a sensitive 43-year old Dutch woman, working and travelling freelance as an actress, (and movement therapist) I like to do chi gung/yogalike excercises and make a fire.

    Please, o ly reply if you are this experienced or professional worker, and when you ask me to come here, be as polite as to at least answer if I accepted your request.
    As open and direct communication is really important and enjoyable to me, my house is 100% nonalcohol & drug-free. Smoking in the garden.

    If you are a professional in a job that I need, I can offer food against 25 hours of work.
    Otherwise I can offer without food against 15 hours of work.

    I speak English, French, German fluently and Spanish well but improvable. Also some Italian. And am willing to teach languages. After living in my house and working in it, please, let's clean up everything together.

    Hi, I am looking for someone who can either help me with insulation, or has 'professional' painting experience or else someone to teach me how to work with wood and (help me) with the finishing touch of my house. Tools are available.

    Timetables are discusable with your and my preferences. I have constructed the rough basics of my elderly house and now want to make beautiful details to make it look nice.

  • Accommodation


    I have a guestroom of 14m2 or else a large bedroom (25m2) upstairs in the attic with a big view. It's also sometimes used as my office. The house includes a fireplace with loungesofa, sauna, jacuzzi (garden), rainshower and wifi, all is shared.

    It is a nonalcoholic and drug-free house for a quiet, clean and really reliable and mature person. I also need my own space and quietness.

    What else ...

    There is an option to freely use the gym I'm in for a week: great classes, swimmingpool, wellness, gym and tennis. Really closeby are small woods, a shopping centre and a bus. We might make a deal about borrowing my extra bike.
    The city is quiet but has a little bit of everything in citylife as in a rich cultural life.
