  • Description


    Hi, my name is Bettina. I am an architect and live weekly in Hamburg or in the discribed house in Selent, 90 min by car from Hamburg.

    In summertime I rent a part of the place. I have a friend (he is musician) who uses the tiny house in the last end of the garden sometimes.

    I love to travel. I did backpacking in India, Thailand, Senegal, South Afrika, Venezuela, Kuba and many more. But since a while I also like to spent time with friends in my quiet house and garden near the baltic see and love to have guests to hang arround and rebuilt the old house.

    In January there is work inside the attic. Sanding and oiling wooden beams or plaster walls. You would have a 50qm flat for your own

    I would be glad to be your host! I am 53 and have two daughters (16 and 22) who are not living there but are coming sometimes. Also my partner or friends will come to stay for a weekend time by time. We would cook, playing music, going for walks...

  • Help


    I would be happy if you like to stay a couple of days or weeks in my house.

    The work would be to help to to plaster the attic inside or to sand the wood beams. 3-4 hours a day would be fine and accomodation and food is free. If you like to work more I would pay extra. Help in my old house and garden is allways welcome.
