    We have especaly two projects from jan-june
    from jan-april is the boat

    Other stuff is helping in/around the house etc..

    We are a family of 5, mother and father and 3 boys, age 25, 22 and 12 years.

    We are interested in 1 or 2 persons, if you are a family of more then 2 persons you are welcome to take contact, if two persons you need to share the bedroom.

    The surroundings are good and quiet.

    We live a 200 meter from the sea and we have pleasure equipment for being on the sea and in the sea.

    We have a sailing yacht that we hopefully will sail a lot with.

    Because we are a very open family there can be a lot of guests visiting our home.

    Because this is a WorkAway, we have seen that the best results for bouth experince the country and work, is when we have people staying longer then 3 weeks, this is also our normal minimum of staying with us.

    The tasks will change a little bit depending on what time of year you will stay.

    If you feel like "I can't do that or that" don't hesitate to tell us what you can do, there is only one thing that is very important "the driving licence" for a normal car

    The age of our WorkAwayer is important 25+ years

    This is because of our daily task that changes a lot during the year.
    Helping with the garden is depends on your skills, we are making a new garden or refreshing the one that is left to nature.
