  • Description


    We are a family of three with a ten-month-old baby boy living in Sakarya, about one and a half hour away from İstanbul, Turkey. I work as a lecturer at a university and my husband owns a bookstore. We live in a two-storey house in the safest and most beautiful neighborhood of the city, Serdivan, . There is a lot to do and see in terms of natural beauties and sports in our hometown. My husband and I love reading books and talking about them. We also like walking, biking, hiking, travelling and spending time with our little one:)

    We will make sure you feel safe and comfortable with us. We believe that honesty and effective communication can provide a nice living atmosphere for everyone and help solve any issues. We are excited to help you experience a new culture and interact with locals. Since I work at university, you can join some cultural activities and events there with us. My husband likes cooking and he is good at it:) One can learn about culture and values of a society best from the locals and we are locals:) I also practice yoga if you are interested:) You can also use our bike to travel around. Our city is way cheaper compared to the other big cities like Istanbul and İzmir in Turkey yet located not far from İstanbul, it only takes an hour and a half from our city to Istanbul by car.

    We are a family of three with a ten month old baby boy and looking for someone who will take care of our baby boy when we are at work. We expect you to work for about 5-6 hours a day during the week days. We will pay you if you are willing to work for extra hours. We need you from September 2021 to June 2022 but it is expandible (depending on the mutual understanding).We expect you to take care of our baby boy during the week days and do some household chores with us such as cleaning and tidying up etc. You can explore the city and travel to other cities on the weekends.
