We are a Swedish-American family who enjoy opening our home to guests from around the world. We have two children, Liam, 8, and Talila, 10, plus a dog and two cats. We enjoy getting to know new people and we also enjoy opening guests' eyes to the beauty of rural Sweden.
We are into yoga, dance, meditation, singing, hikes and other nature experiences, massage, vegan/vegetarian cooking. Together with the kids we enjoy goofing around on the trampoline, movies, board games and card games. The kids are into reading, lego, arts and crafts, and having a jolly good time.
Our home is filled with warmth, joy and laughter and we are happy to share this with others. We mostly speak English at home. We live in a 25 year old eco-house in a small picturesque village on the countryside. We also have a tiny house behind the main house where we host guests.
We are now especially looking for someone who can be here June 6 to July 1 (including being a house sitter June 24-30 while we are away in England) who has experience with household work, cooking, cleaning, childcare, pet care etc. We also need help with painting and some carpentry projects.
How it works? We offer you a room in the house and provide food during your stay. You help 4 hours a day 5 days a week, excluding cooking and cleaning up after meals (which we all help out with).
We are social and friendly, and we want you to enjoy your stay while contributing. We are happy to offer tips for outings or take you along with us when we go on outings and activities.

The nature here in Kloster is very picturesque. Ours is an open and relaxed family and, together with the peacefulness of the area, this can prove to be quite healing for mind and soul. We speak English at home mostly.
